Nebraska and Oklahoma are trying again to overturn marijuana legalization in Colorado, this time by asking to intervene in an ongoing court case.
Last month, the U.S. Supreme Court dismissed a proposed lawsuitbrought against Colorado by the two states, leaving the states without a court to hear their complaints. Earlier this month, Nebraska and Oklahoma responded by asking to be added to a case at the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver.
That case is the consolidation of two separate appeals filed by legalization opponents whose lawsuits were dismissed by a lower court. Nebraska and Oklahoma’s motion means that all of the ongoing challenges against Colorado’s legalization of marijuana have, for the moment, merged into a single court case.
Since Colorado became the first state in the country to allow licensed stores to sell marijuana to anyone over 21 years old, the state has faced a barrage of lawsuits seeking to shutter the stores. So far, none has succeeded. [Read more at The Denver Post]
