Attorney General’s Response to SCOTUS Denial

We are disappointed by the Court’s procedural decision to not hear this case at the present time. However, as both Justices Thomas and Alito recognized, the majority’s decision is clearly not a substantive decision on the merits of our claims.

“Today, the Supreme Court has not held that Colorado’s unconstitutional facilitation of marijuana industrialization is legal,” said Nebraska Attorney General Doug Peterson, “and the Court’s decision does not bar additional challenges to Colorado’s scheme in federal district court.”

At this time the Nebraska Attorney General’s Office is working with its partners in Oklahoma and other states to determine the best next steps toward vindicating the rule of law.
