Oklahoma And Nebraska Challenge Colorado’s Legal Marijuana

DENVER (KDVR)- The states of Oklahoma and Nebraska sued Colorado on Thursday, alleging that the Centennial State’s legalization of recreational pot violates the U.S. Constitution.

“Colorado has created a system that legalizes, promotes and facilitates distribution of marijuana,” Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning said in a media release. “The illegal products of this system are heavily trafficked into neighboring states, causing an unnecessary burden on the state of Nebraska. Colorado has undermined the United States Constitution, and I hope the U.S. Supreme Court will uphold our constitutional principles.”

Colorado Attorney General John Suthers quickly responded, saying Colorado will defend the law.

    Interesting to see how this one will go. I half of your house is in Colorado and the other half in Oklahoma, then can you smoke the MJ only in the Colorado side? Interesting.

    The intake of revenue has been seen and capitol hill is now behind it – too late for your bible thumpin’ ways, sorry. Go join the Amish if you wish to live so backwards. It’s pathetic.

    Jon Bruning’s misuse of the Prosecutors office has shown him to be a unwise and incompetent politician. His pay offs by the coal companies and other anti-environmentalists . as well as pay off’s to avoid prosecution by his office amounts to graft and taking bribes. He is quite literate in double-speak as a way to cover up his crimes. He also has a problem with out-right lies. when asked about his M.P.A.A. bribes.. His ,for sale to the high’t bidder position in public office shows him to be just another greedy corporate puppet. Also one that uses his office for personal gain. The only reason that he is not under prosecution is because he is the prosecutor.The Board that should have dis-barred him long ago is as incompetent as he is and rubber stamp these incompetents., Jon Bruning is the worse case of official misconduct in the entire United States. How long before justice catches up and why don’t the Boards act to remove him from office. He has violated,many times the trust of his office and the people of Nebraska and the United States.
