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.
