We need to bring some of the Law Makers from the “live free or die” state over here to Oregon.

  1. We already know what powers the states delegated to the federal govt. They are all listed within the text of the US Constitution. For further clarification the federalist/anti-federalist papers could be consulted for the context in which all these powers was understood at the time of ratification.

  2. There is a kind of argument proposed (I believe) by Thomas Jefferson about the powers of the federal government and that is that the states can't delegate powers it doesn't have. I don't think that this argument flies with how the current constitution is written but if it was it would give states the ultimate power over their own borders since it would first have to have the power given to it in order the the federal government to have that same power within its borders. Any state that wishes to get rid of the federal law within that state can then get rid of the power it has itself. IF a state doesn't have the power to regulate drug use then it can't delegate that same power to the federal government.

    Imagine if the constitution had that provision in it?
