I'm laying out the reality that doing so, as doing a whole lot of things, isn't necessarily prevented by the Commerce Clause. Whether such nonsense might be vulnerable to attack on other bases or might not be politically likely are other questions.

States can do a whole lot of stupid stuff without necessarily violating the Commerce Clause, or even that are otherwise unconstitutional. That's why being politically active can be important. That's why we have checks and balances.
