    Would be a lot easier to legalize pot than to secede.

    Texas would make a lot of noise.

    Drug-related violence in AZ and elsewhere will increase tenfold due to disruption in the supply distribution.

    Latinos would probably flee in fear of prosection.

    Cartels probably would take advantage of the civil disorders and use it as a cover for their covert operations.

    They'd go broke in a hurry because they'd no longer be eligible to receive federal funds for anything.

    Problem is Glenn, the federal govt is already broke and keeps getting deeper into debt even faster with the help of Obama. So, what would the incentive be for Arizona to stay with the Union if they feel they are being oppressed by their own federal govt?

    This is called the United States...a union of 50 states together to make up as one country. Each state has their own laws and regulations different with other states along with federal laws that all states have. There is nothing illegal about secceeding unless you are saying that once your "join a club you can never leave"..?

    In fact, early on in our history we demanded and seceeded from an overbearing government, the British, in 1776 as outlined in the Declaration of Independence:

    I would predict 34 other states would secede if Arizona did. Then we would go state by state and deport the liberals to Ohio.

    By "we" I mean Georgia would secede too.

    Don't put in any states, they should stay in state that where they are belong to, regardless on political issues and if they don't agree so they can move on their own instead of deport.

    I was being sarcastic. I will never support forcing people to move from their homes.
