Nebraska and Oklahoma suing Colorado over marijuana legalization

Nebraska and Oklahoma filed a lawsuit with the U.S. Supreme Court asking to reverse Colorado’s legalization of marijuana Thursday.

The states are arguing that the legalization of marijuana has led to increased amounts of the drug crossing state borders.

“Marijuana flows … into neighboring states, undermining Plaintiff States’ own marijuana bans, draining their treasuries, and placing stress on their criminal justice systems,” the lawsuit states.

Colorado’s Attorney General issued a statement Thursday, saying that he will stand by the marijuana legalization and that he believes the lawsuit stems more from a lack of federal marijuana enforcement rather than Colorado’s legalization.

“We believe this suit is without merit and we will vigorously defend against it in the U.S. Supreme Court,” Attorney General John Suthers said in the statement.
