If Federal law trumps State law every time, then why does the U.S. Constitution have a Tenth Amendment?

If Federal law trumps State law every time, then why does the U.S. Constitution have a Tenth Amendment?

The Tenth Amendment seems to imply the Federal government has a LIMITED number of powers and that any power not specifically delegated to the Federal Govt. lies with the individual State governments.

Did the 10th amendment get repealed or something?

“ The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people. ”


SAN FRANCISCO – Attorney General Eric Holder says the federal government will enforce its marijuana laws in California even if voters next month make the state the first in the nation to legalize the drug.

The Justice Department strongly opposes California’s Proposition 19 and remains firmly committed to enforcing the federal Controlled Substances Act in all states, Holder wrote in a letter to former chiefs of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. The Associated Press obtained a copy of the letter, dated Wednesday.

“We will vigorously enforce the CSA against those individuals and organizations that possess, manufacture or distribute marijuana for recreational use, even if such activities are permitted under state law,” Holder wrote.
anthony david…………”Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War changed all that.”

So the Tenth Amendment is null and void? Then why is it still there?
GARF………”In the case of pot; because we do not want to pay the future health costs out of Medicare”

So then you fully support banning cigarettes, alcohol, caffeine and salt? Because all those things do exactly what you claim marijuana would do if legalized.
Miss Nancy…………So the Tenth Amendment was for aesthetic purposes? Seriously, why was it included if you claim it has no use whatsoever?
Commander……”Can you imagine a recession if that were obeyed? Impossible.”

There were still recessions, they just weren’t nearly as severe as the boom/bush cycles we have now. Oh, and the federal govt. couldn’t steal the wealth of the people via inflation.
