Reuters reported that the US Supreme Court has rejected a law suit levied against Colorado by the states of Oklahoma and Nebraska. The latter two states took issue with Colorado’s legalization of marijuana, claiming that the drug is now being smuggled across their borders.
As quoted in the publication:
Two conservative justices, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito, said they would have heard the case.
Nebraska and Oklahoma contended that drugs such as marijuana threaten the health and safety of children and argued that Colorado had created “a dangerous gap” in the federal drug control system.
Colorado stands by its law. It noted that the Obama administration has indicated the federal government lacks the resources and inclination to enforce fully the federal marijuana ban.
