Colorado Seeks To Uproot Neighbor States’ Marijuana Suit

COLORADO:  Colorado’s Attorney General on Friday asked the U.S. Supreme Court to throw out a lawsuit brought by her counterparts in Oklahoma and Nebraska over the state’s recreational marijuana marketplace.

Oklahoma and Nebraska argue that the flow of marijuana out of Colorado is hurting their states, filling their jails and clogging their court systems with offenders illegally exporting pot across state borders.
