You may not get it, but that doesn't change federal law.

Under federal law, marijuana is a controlled substance, and possession violates federal law. The Constitution says:

"...This Constitution, and the laws of the United States ...shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding...." (Article VI)
