Nebraska and Oklahoma Take New Tack to Overturn Marijuana Legalization

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.
