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.
