NE, OK again try to overturn CO rec marijuana law

The attorneys general of Nebraska and Oklahoma aren’t ready to throw in the towel in their bid to overthrow Colorado’s recreational cannabis law, after the duo recently failed to do so before the U.S. Supreme Court.

The two attorneys general have asked to be added as plaintiffs in a separate case aimed at scuttling Colorado’s 2012 voter-approved rec law. That case is now before the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver.

According to the Lincoln Journal Star, just making the request means representatives from the two attorneys general’s offices can submit merit-based briefs to the court in support of their argument.

The latest case combines two lawsuits attempting to overturn the Colorado law:

The court has yet to address whether the attorneys general can be added as plaintiffs, and it has not given a timeline for a decision.

In March, the U.S. Supreme Court decided by a 6-2 vote not to take up Nebraska and Oklahoma’s joint lawsuit, which was filed in 2014.

    So basically, two arrogant attorneys general now conspire with groups like the sheriffs’ unions and Safe Streets Alliance because they all want government agencies to continue wasting billions of taxpayer dollars, flagrantly defying our country’s most basic guarantee of personal freedom. Opponents truly delight when law enforcement agencts take freedom away from cannabis growers. Such growers, mind you, provide a vital public service caring for beautiful plants that prosper in decent soil, light and climate conditions, yielding limitless amounts of raw materials for the manufacture of tens of thousands of eco-friendly consumer products. This relentless 80-year legal war against seedless, female “marihuana” flowers may never end. The fact that cannabis plants were perfectly legal to grow everywhere for the first 150 years of American history has become totally irrelevant to anti-marijuana zealots. They should just partake, relax, have a few laughs, discard their lawsuits, and proceed expeditiously to shut the [email protected]#k up for the common good.
