The United States Supreme Court is going to discuss a case that could be detrimental to cannabis legalization throughout the nation. On Friday, the Court revealed that the justices will decide whether or not to consider a lawsuit that Nebraska and Oklahoma filed against Colorado over its legal marijuana industry.The approval of at least four justices is required for the case to be considered. Although nobody knows where the current member of Congress stands on their reviewing process, it has been widely conjectured that due to Justice Antonin Scalia’s death, there will be one less vote than there would have been had been alive.

The lawsuit was filed long ago; more specifically, in December of 2014. In this lawsuit, the attorney general of both Nebraska and Oklahoma say that cannabis is coming over their borders from Colorado and is polluting their state. According to them, their law enforcement agencies, courts, and jails are experiencing heavy burdens. If the Court does end up hearing the case on Friday, then this will be the beginning of a process that may go on for years. The case was not sent to the lower courts first but was instead sent straight to the supreme court. Because of that, a “special master” will “perform the role of a trial court by establishing a factual record and gathering evidence.” This role will be chosen by the justices, and will then make a recommendation on a ruling by the Court.

If the plaintiffs win against Colorado, only its regulatory system for cannabis making and distributing could be ruined, leaving possession and personal farming legal but unregulated, a result that supporters say could worsen conditions for Nebraska and Oklahoma in comparison to what is happening now. The case was originally planned to be heard during the Court’s January 22 and February 19 conferences.
