Nebraska & Oklahoma Sue Colorado Over Legalization

Colorado -- Two neighboring states are asking the U.S. Supreme Court to strike down Colorado's laws legalizing recreational marijuana.Nebraska and Oklahoma filed the lawsuit directly with the nation's highest court on Thursday. The two states argue that, "the State of Colorado has created a dangerous gap in the federal drug control system."
"Marijuana flows from this gap into neighboring states, undermining Plaintiff States' own marijuana bans, draining their treasuries, and placing stress on their criminal justice systems," the lawsuit states.Colorado Attorney General John Suthers said in a statement that he will defend the state's legalization of marijuana."Because neighboring states have expressed concern about Colorado-grown marijuana coming into their states, we are not entirely surprised by this action," Suthers said. "However, it appears the plaintiffs' primary grievance stems from non-enforcement of federal laws regarding marijuana, as opposed to choices made by the voters of Colorado. We believe this suit is without merit and we will vigorously defend against it in the U.S. Supreme Court."In a statement and subsequent news conference Thursday, Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning said Colorado's marijuana legalization has adversely affected his state. Colorado pot is turning up in Nebraska, he said, resulting in an increase in marijuana-related arrests on his state's western border.SnippedComplete Article: Denver Post (CO)Author: John Ingold, The Denver PostPublished: November 18, 2014Copyright: 2014 The Denver Post Website: openforum denverpost.comCannabisNews   -- Cannabis  Archives

Nebraska, Oklahoma meddling with Colorado pot law the news regarding D.C.'s legalization of cannabis; REPUBLICANS have been consistently mentioned with the effort to thwart the majority (70%) voter's will.Now, the Post:"These two Republicans..."  (regarding nuisance neighbors)Repub's are becoming thought of as a NUISANCE. -Ignorant ones at that.And that's great for the 2016 elections.  They'll chase away young voters fast. Let's hope this law suit gets lots of attention and lasts 2 years.

The Okies are a slow people.
The Okies lived in 1957 for fifty years. Everytime they take a leap forward by half a century, the whole state wakes up in a state of confusion for a decade or so.They believe Jesus walked with dinosaurs. White socks are considered a fashion statement and God rested on Sunday not Saturday. Beer and football is the unofficial state religion.

Nebraska and the devil law.
"We can't afford to divert resources to deal with Colorado's problem."???Then don't. -0-"Nebraska taxpayers have to bear the cost," Even in Nebraska, roughly half the citizens want to end cannabis prohibition and do not want to bear that cost.So if Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning is concerned that "Nebraska taxpayers have to bear the cost," & THEY DON'T WANT TO BEAR THE COST, then end the ignoid policy of CAGING HUMANS FOR USING A GOD GIVEN PLANT. -Only the worst of the worst support the devil law anyway.
