Since its’ filing in 2014, Hail Mary Jane has followed the lawsuit filed by Nebraska and Oklahoma against Colorado’s re-legalization of cannabis. Here’s some of the tone of this lawsuit:
“The diversion of marijuana from Colorado contradicts the clear Congressional intent, frustrates the federal interest in eliminating commercial transactions in the interstate controlled-substances market, and is particularly burdensome for neighboring states like Plaintiff States where law enforcement agencies and the citizens have endured the substantial expansion of Colorado marijuana.”
Two Justices, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito, would have allowed the case to continue. The rest of the judicial panel said “no.” This lawsuit is dead. NORML’s coverage of the case is HERE.
Our friend, Tom Angell, over at Marijuana Majority, had this to say:
“This case, if it went forward and the Court ruled the wrong way, had the potential to roll back many of the gains our movement has achieved to date. And the notion of the Supreme Court standing in the way could have cast a dark shadow on the marijuana ballot measures voters will consider this November.”
It’s a good day for the re-legalization of cannabis, especially in light of the fact that only two of the Justices would allow such an action. The prevailing winds remain with re-legalization. Keep pushing everyone. Cannabis prohibition is falling down.
