Remember when States could nullify unconstitutional mandates from the Federal government?
Me neither, but it used to happen and could again if more people knew it was a REAL option.

Looks to me like they still are.  Several states are nullifying Federal law on hemp and Marijuana.

True, but those are relatively new/minor and are getting some pushback from the feds. I never heard or read a word about this idea in school and I graduated in '90. Really had no clue about how it could work until reading Thoreau's Civil Disobedience which sparked a conversation 15 yrs ago...

Simple noncompliance is a radical concept now. It shouldn't be. And as stated in the article:
 The feds rely on cooperation from state and local governments, as well as individuals. When enough people refuse to comply, they simply can’t enforce their so-called laws.

I think that's what did in the Prohibition.  Too many people refused to obey it and their neighbors refused to convict them.

I think you are correct. It becomes very hard to enforce a law that everyone is breaking.
