Chapter 3 Question (10 points – half a page or more)

Pick a political issue that has federalism vs states rights as a controversy e.g. marijuana legalization, abortion, gay rights, immigration, etc. Do you think it’s best to decide these issues nationally/federally or state by state and why? What is one potential disadvantage of the answer you chose. Ex: if you chose to argue for national legalization of marijuana, what’s a potential problem with that? If you said marijuana should be legalized state by state, what’s a challenge with that?
