The US Supreme Court has asked President Barack Obama's administration to take a stance on legal marijuana as it considers a lawsuit seeking to ban Colorado’s legalisation of recreational marijuana. Nebraska and Oklahoma have jointly filed a lawsuit claiming that Colorado’s pot laws have created a “cross-border nuisance” by increasing potential marijuana traffic that could flow through the region. If the US president takes a stance on recreational marijuana it could have big implications on the future of the legalisation movement.
