Colorado Has Been Sued By Two Neighboring States , Nebraska And Oklahoma, For Allegedly Not Keeping Marijuana Within Its Own Borders.

Colorado allows medical pot patients to grow up to 99 plants, far beyond other marijuana states, and it also allows recreational users to group their allotted six plants into massive co-ops, colorado marijuana entire greenhouses of pot that aren’t tracked or taxed. Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper says the state’s generous pot allowances make it almost impossible for cops to tell legitimate growers from black-market fronts, and he is calling for a several new laws to crack down. Proposals include a ban on group recreational pot grows and new paperwork requirements for people who grow medical pot. With uncertainty looming about how the next president will approach marijuana , Colorado regulators say it’s time to ramp up efforts to crush the black market and show the feds that Colorado isn’t letting weed seep into other states. “We do need to clean up this system and make sure we’re beyond reproach for how well we’re regulating marijuana,” said Andrew Freedman , the governor’s marijuana coordinator. Colorado has been sued by two neighboring states , Nebraska and Oklahoma, for allegedly not keeping marijuana within its own borders. That lawsuit was dismissed by the U.S. Supreme Court , but neighboring states continue to gripe that Colorado’s friendly reminders at airports and interstate highways aren’t sufficient to keep marijuana out of their states. Freedman points to six large criminal raids in the last two years as evidence that black market pot dealers are exploiting the state. The most recent case happened this fall, when federal agents and local law enforcement simultaneously raided a dozen homes in southeast Colorado, seizing 22,400 pounds of marijuana.
