Supreme Court rejects conservative challenge to Colorado's marijuana legalization laws by Nebraska and Oklahoma: Was that decision correct?

  • Yes, the conservative argument was weak.

    Drugs crossing over state lines is like drugs being transacted illegally from a pharmacist to an abuser. The good and service the pharmaceutical companies provide outweigh the opened possibility of illegal drug distribution. As for financial equity for the enforcement of marijuana prohibition (there is a call for Colorado taxpayers to pay on behalf of the Nebraska), Nebraska should slacken its laws on marijuana. It helps state revenue, decreases criminal profit, and puts less kids into trouble. It's time you get over what evil or decadence you think marijuana advances, since many can testify the drug promotes love and wonder in people, and even scientific creativity (according to Sagan). The amount of money we pour into the war on drugs is also fiscally un-conservative. I think the Supreme Court deeply considered the future.

  • Yes, the rejection of the challenge to Colorado's marijuana legalization laws by Nebraska and Oklahoma was correct.

    Yes, the choice to reject the challenge against Colorado's marijuana legalization laws by Nebraska and Oklahoma was the right choice. Individual states should have the right to be able to choose what rules they want to enforce, as long as they don't affect any other states. In addition, the legalization of marijuana has allowed for legal taxes on marijuana, which provides another source of income for the state.

  • Yes, the Supreme Court's rejection of the challenge to Colorado's marijuana law was correct

    Yes, the Supreme Court's rejection of the challenge levied by the states of Nebraska and Oklahoma against Colorado's marijuana law is correct. This conservative challenge is not in line with the Supreme Court's belief that the state of Colorado has the right to legislate whether or not marijuana is legal within its borders.

  • The conservatives argument was flimsy at best

    In the first place marijuana shouldn't be illegal anyway there are less negative effects than alcohol but we have no problem with that being legal and at bare minimum it should be legal for medical use as it has proven time and time again to have significant benefits in the treatment of several diseases.But on the original argument the state technically has the right to choose how they enforce federal law so they could "choose to enforce it" by not enforcing it. And the argument being strictly against Colorado's legalization of marijuana is absurd do to the fact that they have no way of proving the drug was strictly from Colorado therefore if the supreme court accepted this case they would be opening a Pandora's box effect where Colorado and other states would blame all there drug problems on each other for example a state could say "theirs meth in our state its Texas fault they need to do something" and so on.

  • Yes, the rejection of the challenge to Colorado's marijuana legalization laws by Nebraska and Oklahoma was correct.

    The rejection of the challenge to Colorado's marijuana legalization laws be Nebraska and Oklahoma was correct, and is directly related to the argument on whether or not marijuana should be decriminalized nationwide, and legalized nationwide. In my opinion, marijuana should be legalized and regulated nationwide. It is a matter that should be first and foremost left up to the states. Therefore I believe this was a good political move where the Supreme Court further gives power to the states in making this decision on their own.

  • No, the death penalty is not justifiable.

    There is no situation in which the death penalty is justifiable. First of all, in some cases the defendant may not even be guilty. In the age of DNA evidence, many long time death row inmates have been exonerated when new DNA evidence has proven that they did not commit the crime. Second of all, the death penalty is too extreme. When someone is executed, we are punishing them for killing someone. However, does killing them not make us just as bad as them? Killing a person is an inhumane act that should never be done.

  • It was the wrong decidion for the Supreme Court.

    It was the incorrect decision for the Supreme Court to reject the conservative challenge to Colorado's marijuana legalization laws by Nebraska and Oklahoma. It should be the choice of the people to be able to smoke herb or not. If a person doesn't want to, then all they have to do is not do it.

  • Economic development in one state, causes increases in crime in surrounding states.

    The only reason proponents of this action do so is because they are proponents of marijuana. One of the primary functions of the federal government is to handle interstate crime, not only is Colorado technically breaking federal law, they cause serious consequences for states around them. The marijuana trade, which is illegal in said states, fund and perpetuates a black market that is run by violent and criminal enterprises. The demand is relatively the same everywhere, but the supply is not even legal thus raising the price, thus making a highly profitable market for criminals. I am for states rights all the way, I am even a libertarian, but this is a huge cause of crime. I also am speaking as a Nebraskan.
