Nebraska Attorney General Doug Peterson on Tuesday defended a state lawsuit against legalized marijuana in Colorado, saying he will go forward with the suit filed by his predecessor weeks before Peterson took office.
Some western Nebraska law enforcement officials are cheering a new state lawsuit that seeks to thwart Colorado’s legalization of marijuana, even as Colorado vows to fight it in court.
Colorado is one of 20 states where medical marijuana is legal and one of two states where pot is legal for adults. Texas is not one of those states but some people who live there claim they’re getting high thanks to family and friends shipping the drug to them.
Police in Nebraska counties along the Colorado border are fighting to keep medical marijuana from crossing state lines.
