The big weed news this week was the attorneys general of Oklahoma and Nebraska filing a lawsuit asking the U.S. Supreme Court to strike down Colorado’s voter-approved law that legalizes marijuana, reports The Cannabist. The central gripe of the lawsuit is that legal weed is flowing from Colorado into the two neighboring states where law enforcement is using more resources to chase stoners. The lawsuit argues that marijuana is still illegal under federal law, and the nation’s top court should strike down Colorado’s legalization ballot initiative.

Speaking of Colorado, a campaign is being mounted to get a measure on the 2016 ballot that would, if passed, prohibit sheriffs from denying concealed carry permits to people because of pot use.

A Los Angeles Superior Court judge has ruled that a medical marijuana delivery service that uses a smartphone mobile app is illegal.

New research from analysts at Morgan Stanley have found that teens are more likely to light up joints than cigarettes, which could have big implications for the tobacco industry.
