Could a State of the United States commit a Federal offense? E.g. could a State with legal Medical Marijuana be charged as a drug offender?
E.g. Case: United States v. California. The charges: Transporting Marijuana in Interstate or Foreign Commerce, Money Laundering, Racketeering.
It seems clear that, based on Sovereign Immunity and or other legal principles, a State cannot commit a crime against itself, but this question relates to the State commiting an offense against the United States, or the US Federal Government, etc.
