Recently, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, (an Obama appointee) communicated to the 50 state attorneys general that if they disagree with a law they can refuse to enforce said law, just as the Obama administration does, per Holder.
Bear in mind, laws are voted on by the elected representatives of the people in each state; making each new law a part of that state's body of laws. Also, bear in mind these individual attorneys general take a binding oath to uphold the laws, all the laws, of their particular jurisdiction.
I therefore can infer that if I encounter a law, passed by a duly elected Legislature, I can choose to ignore that law and do as I please, experiencing no repercussions (the Eric Holder doctrine).
