It's beyond absurd to think that there's any possibility of State level medicinal cannabis patient protection laws being overturned by the federal Courts. California's Compassionate Use Act (CUA) is in its 16th year and has been in front of the SCOTUS 4 times with the issue of preemption being the basis of at least the last 2. The law remains on the books.
Those people thinking that the Federal cavalry is going to ride into town any day now should ask themselves why 3 consecutive Presidential administrations haven't even bothered to challenge these laws.
P.S. There were in fact Several States which repealed their drinking alcohol prohibition laws before the 21st Amendment was ratified in 1933. New York was the first and they didn't wait long, repealing in the early 1920s. Massachusetts repealed in 1930 through a ballot initiative and California did likewise in 1932.
