U.S. court nixes states’ bid to stop Colorado’s rec marijuana program

Oklahoma and Nebraska will have to try harder if they hope to stop Colorado’s adult-use marijuana industry.

According to the Denver Post, the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver upheld a lower court’s dismissal of the two states’ attempt to overturn Colorado’s recreational marijuana law.

The state attorneys general from Oklahoma and Nebraska last year had joined a lawsuit that included a group of sheriffs from both states to stop Colorado’s MJ industry.

The states joined the suit after they failed at the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Colorado recreational marijuana law. 

The new case that the states ultimately latched onto involved two other lawsuits attempting to quash the Colorado law:

    What a waste of state resources. Besides, that ship has sailed. Just wait until California and Nevada come on board. To stay nothing about all of Canada next year.!t’s not 1957 folks, it’s 2017.

    Perhaps the Sherriff’s time would be better spent reading the constitution for actual substance, than flying in the face of our God given liberties with such frivolous action. If I were paying taxes in those states I’d be pissed at the waste of resources.

    In AZ we can’t even get a hemp farming bill passed because of one person, our governor Doug Doushy. How can one person be so uneducated and be in his position. Doushy needs to go.

    The idea of a state: is exactly that; jurisdiction. Not counting extra-dition one state does not recognize the authority of another. Especially in a different time zone. You can’t be in both places at once. Impossible! Many state laws contradict federal – laws; easily. [email protected]!
