That guy we played golf with, Tony Cardoza, is a serioulsy kick ass crim defense attorney, if your friend is looking. I think he's had Ed Rosenthal, who also got nabbed, as an expert witness before

a buck? My original comment was going to be "I hope they don't play him like Ed, but at least that could have worked out worse". I guess it is working out worse.

If ever there was a time to employ Jury nullification, this is it.

Let me also add that if Clarence Thomas had his way, this wouldn't even be an issue since the Feds wouldn't be able to trump state law without a better reason. His dissent in Gonzales v. Raich was brilliant:

"Respondents Diane Monson and Angel Raich use marijuana that has never been bought or sold, that has never crossed state lines, and that has had no demonstrable effect on the national market for marijuana. If Congress can regulate this under the Commerce Clause, then it can regulate virtually anything–and the Federal Government is no longer one of limited and enumerated powers."
