Supreme Court rejects states’ efforts to overturn Colorado cannabis law

The supreme court on Monday declined an effort by Nebraska and Oklahoma to have Colorado`s pot legalization proclaimed unconstitutional.

The justices did not comment about their termination of the suit that the states submitted directly against their neighbor.

The court likewise bought Massachusetts leading court to look again at the state`s restriction on stun weapons.

Nebraska and Oklahoma argued that Colorado`s law enabling leisure cannabis use by adults ran afoul of federal anti-drug laws. The states likewise stated that legalized pot in Colorado was spilling throughout the borders, complicating their own anti-drug efforts and draining state resources.


The Obama administration agreed Colorado, in spite of its opposition to making cannabis use legal.

Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito would have heard the states suit.

In the Massachusetts case, the justices revived an appeal from a woman who said she kept a stun gun in her purse for self-defense versus a violent previous boyfriend.

The Massachusetts supreme judicial court stated the restriction on possession of stun weapons does not breach the 2nd modification.

Monday`s anonymous United States supreme court opinion did not go so far about strike down the law or say stun weapons were secured under the amendment s right to keep and bear arms.
