Colorado Attorney General Cynthia H. Coffman Successfully Defends the State Constitution in Lawsuit Dismissed by the U.S. Supreme Court
DENVER -- Colorado Attorney General Cynthia H. Coffman issued the follow statement this morning after reviewing the order of the United States Supreme Court dismissing the interstate legal challenge to Amendment 64 - the Amendment that legalizes and regulates the use of recreational marijuana in Colorado.
“I’m proud of the legal team in my office that successfully defended this complicated case. I continue to believe that this lawsuit was not the way to properly address the challenges posed by legalized marijuana. But the problems are not going away. Although we’ve had victories in several federal lawsuits over the last month, the legal questions surrounding Amendment 64 still require stronger leadership from Washington.”
