Can state laws ignore federal laws?

If the U.S. Constitution explicitly states that federal laws trump state laws then how can states like Washington and Colorado legalize marijuana and violate federal drug laws? If that is allowed then could a more conservative state pass legislation to outlaw all abortions in that state, disregarding the Supreme Court ruling which allows abortions?
