No Plans To Sue Colorado Over Marijuana, Utah Governor Says

January 8, 2015

Gov. Gary Herbert says Utah has no plans to join two other states in suing Colorado over that state’s legalization of marijuana.

The Deseret News reported Herbert said that despite no current plans to sue, Utah is keeping an eye on marijuana legalization in its neighbor state.

Nebraska and Oklahoma filed a lawsuit last month asking the U.S. Supreme Court to declare Colorado’s legalization of marijuana unconstitutional.

MarijuanaNebraska and Oklahoma say Colorado’s voter-approved legalization has brought marijuana into their states and made it harder for them to enforce drug laws.

Utah officials have said they do not want to legalize marijuana but they did pass a limited medical marijuana law last year allowing those with severe epilepsy to possess cannabis extract oil.
