States Sue Colorado Over Marijuana Legalization

States Sue Colorado Over Marijuana Legalization – http://huff.to/1AwFA2a

Further to the last post, in unusual legal, political or scientific situations the first question should be, what questions should I be asking?

In novel legal situations those questions are often about standing, jurisdiction, proper forum.  Even if there is a great argument that doesn’t help if you’re the wrong party or named the wrong defendant in law, or plead a legal basis that is going to get punted when another legal basis may be viable.

Just reacting and relying on the high court later to haul your ass out of the fire is not a particularly good strategy.

Unless they’ve found some precedent that supports this I suspect there is a legal standing issue.
