Federalism is meant to allow states to act as laboratories for new ideas - other states can watch and see how it goes. As the consequences of legalization become apparent over the longer term, more states can join in or choose not to. That's federalism - something we need more of.
The Feds certainly don't seemed concerned when a state passes laws that constrict constitutional rights (I.e. 2nd amendment).
