Nebraska and Oklahoma have filed a federal lawsuit against Colorado claiming the Rocky Mountain state’s legal weed industry is bleeding over borders and costing their taxpayers millions. The suit asks the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Colorado’s legalization. (Squares.)
Nebraska and Oklahoma claim the marijuana has been flowing over state borders ever since legalization on January 1, 2014. They make no mention of how marijuana was always crossing state lines, or that police profiling cars with Colorado license plates is most likely what's caused the spike in infractions (and the use of taxpayers' dollars).
No, Nebraska and Oklahoma decided to take this one straight to the top. At least when it gets shot down there will be precedent preventing this utterly pointless attempt at impeding social change. Prohibition is coming to an end whether the powers at be in middle America like it or not — if they really want to save taxpayers money on prosecuting marijuana charges, they should join those dirty hippies in Colorado and legalize it.
