Nebraska And Oklahoma Are Suing Colorado Over Weed Legalization…Wait What?

Source

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska and Oklahoma on Thursday asked the U.S. Supreme Court to declare Colorado’s legalization of marijuana unconstitutional, saying the drug is being brought from Colorado into the neighboring states.

Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning said the states filed a lawsuit seeking a court order to prevent Colorado from enforcing the measure known as Amendment 64, which was approved by voters in 2012. The complaint says the measure runs afoul of federal law and therefore violates the Constitution’s supremacy clause, which says federal laws trump state laws.

“This contraband has been heavily trafficked into our state,” Bruning said at a news conference in Lincoln. “While Colorado reaps millions from the sale of pot, Nebraska taxpayers have to bear the cost.”

In a policy statement last year, the U.S. Justice Department noted it doesn’t have the resources to police all violations of federal marijuana law. It laid out eight federal law enforcement priorities that states need to protect if they want to authorize “marijuana-related conduct.” They include keeping marijuana in-state — something Oklahoma and Nebraska says Colorado has failed to do.

Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt said Colorado’s decision has hindered his state’s efforts to enforce its anti-marijuana laws.

“As the state’s chief legal officer, the attorney general’s office is taking this step to protect the health and safety of Oklahomans,” Pruitt said in a statement.

Washington state also has legalized marijuana, but Bruning said Washington wasn’t included in the lawsuit because it doesn’t share a border with Nebraska or Oklahoma.

Colorado Attorney General John Suthers said the lawsuit was without merit but that he was not totally surprised by it because neighboring states have expressed concerns about Colorado marijuana crossing the border.

“However, it appears the plaintiffs’ primary grievance stems from non-enforcement of federal laws regarding marijuana, as opposed to choices made by the voters of Colorado,” Suthers said in a statement in which he said Colorado would vigorously defend its law.

Bruning, a Republican, blamed U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder for failing to enforce the federal law’s ban on drugs in Colorado.

Legal scholars say it’s too early to know how the Supreme Court might handle the case or if it will even accept it.

“Right now, these regulations exist in legal no-man’s-land,” said Sam Kamin, a University of Denver law professor. “It’s incredibly unusual for a state to be suing another state. (The lawsuit) certainly was a surprise to me given the movement at the federal level, which seems to be in favor of allowing states to experiment.”

Brian Vicente, a Colorado attorney and legalization advocate who wrote Amendment 64, said the challenge is “political grandstanding” without merit. He said 23 states have enacted medical marijuana laws, and none have been overturned because of federal law.

“I think it shows they are on the wrong side of history,” Vicente said. “Colorado voters passed this measure, and more and more states are passing these laws. If the attorney general has a problem with how federal laws are being enforced he should bring that up with the U.S. attorney.”

But some law enforcement agencies in western Nebraska, along the Colorado border, say combating marijuana that’s coming in from the neighboring state is a drain on their resources.

Scotts Bluff County Sheriff Mark Overman, in western Nebraska, said Colorado marijuana is extra potent, making it worth more in his region and giving sellers a greater financial incentive to do business there.

“I think this is overdue, and I think other states should jump on board,” Overman said. “I’m very frustrated. I take an oath of office, as does every other police officer in this country. I don’t just get to pick and choose which laws I enforce.”

There’s no way to know exactly how much legal pot is leaving Colorado. But the Rocky Mountain High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area wrote in a recent report that the amount of Colorado pot seized on highways increased from an annual average of 2,763 pounds between 2005 and 2008 to a yearly average of 3,690 pounds from 2009 to 2013. The weed was headed for at least 40 different states.

The report surveyed law enforcement agencies in Colorado and neighboring ones.

So let me get this straight… Nebraska and Oklahoma want to sue Colorado because people are smuggling weed into their states. Can states even sue each other? I thought every state was buddy buddy with each other after the whole Civil War debacle.

Anyways, Nebraska and Oklahoma kind of come off as jealous pussies. They’re jealous that Colorado is becoming a million times more popular then them. Like Colorado is sitting right next door with plenty of skiing, professional teams, South Park and now weed. What do Nebraska and Oklahoma have? Nothing besides corn and Oklahoma Sooners football.
Pro Tip: Hey Nebraska and Oklahoma legalize weed and you’ll be the cool cats on the block like Colorado. Simple as that.

Brandon Jennings Perfectly Sums Up His Career In One Play

Yep. This is definitely the Brandon Jennings we’ve all gotten to know and love over the past 5 years. He had all the tools to be a superstar in this league. All he had to do was learn how to play like a normal point guard. Instead BJennings plays like he’s on the And 1 circuit going up against Hot Sauce and The Professor. Never change.

Raptors PG Lou Williams Has The Dream Girlfriend Situation

Source

Lou Williams, one of the star players from the NBA league-leading Toronto Raptors, is in an open relationship.

His girl has a girlfriend, his side chick is his main chick, but his main chick still loves him more. Lou and his two girlfriends, Ashley Henderson and Rece Mitchell, aren’t shy about showing off their non-traditional relationship, posting many pictures of their set-up on Instagram:

Lou Williams’ Girlfriend has a girlfriend and they’re both ok with it… so does Lou just have three-somes at a snap of his fingers? Is that how this relationship works? Does his main girlfriend care if he cheats on her because she’s technically cheating on him every time she finger blasts her girl friend? I’m really not too sure how things go down in the William’s residence.

All I know this is some Mormon shit without having to marry the chicks. Lou Will lives the life. He’s making millions to play ball and he’s fucking two** chicks at all times. That my friends is the American Dream. Hats off to you Lou Will.

Report: Cleveland Cavaliers Could Trade Dion Waiters For Grizzlies Center Kostas Koufos

Earlier in the year there was some reports from sketchy sources that said the Cavs wanted to trade Dion Waiters for Roy Hibbert. No trade ever went through.

Now ESPN’s Marc Stein is reporting that the Cleveland Cavaliers are interested in Grizzlies big man Kostas Koufos with Dion Waiters, once again, being the odd man out.

Sources say that the Cavs are well aware landing a quality big man likely depends on selling on potential trade partners to take back polarizing shooting guard Dion Waiters.

Cleveland rates Waiters’ talent highly, but sources maintain that the Cavs have let a number of teams know they are prepared to surrender him if they can acquire a difference-making center in return.

And Koufos, regarded as one of the league’s more underrated interior defenders thanks to the limited minutes he gets behind Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph, would certainly qualify. How willing the Grizzlies are to part with Koufos, meanwhile, remains to be seen.

It’s naturally hard to see it at this early juncture no matter how blessed Memphis is with frontcourt depth. When you rip through the first quarter of the season at 16-4, there isn’t much incentive to change anything.

I think this trade actually makes sense for the Cavs.

For starters, Dion wants to be any teams first or second option on offense, where he can take 15 shots and put up 20 points a night. This style doesn’t fit this team at all.

He has Kobe Bryant’s “Mamba Mentality” but as a role player. Oil and water mix better than that.

Secondly, the Cavs have absolute no inside presence on defense. Tristan Thompson is the closest thing they have to a shot blocker and he’s an undersized 6’9 power forward. If the Cavs want to be the best team in the NBA then they need fix their down low defense. Kostas Koufos is the guy who can change that.

Koufos is a traditional 7foot center who lives in the paint. He can be that 15-20 minute a game guy who comes off the bench and focuses mainly on defense. On Memphis he’s been getting little to none playing time and his defensive talent is going to waste.

Some Cavs fans aren’t gonna like this trade (if it goes down) because of Dion’s upside. I was the same with the Roy Hibbert for Dion rumors because I thought Dion was gonna have a breakout year. So far he hasn’t lived up to those expectations at all.

If the Cavaliers want to be a better all around team instead of an offensive power house who’s horrible on the defensive end then they’ll need to seriously consider this deal. Koufos (as crazy as it sounds) could be the missing piece on defense that makes the Cavs a NBA juggernaut.

It’s early in the season and Dion still has time to learn his role but the clocks ticking on him. I say if Dion is still struggling by Christmas or New Years then David Griffin needs to call the Grizzlies and get this deal done.

Jamaican Chef: A Drug Dealer That Doesn’t Hide Anything

Screen Shot 2014-11-20 at 11.20.14 AM

Most drug dealers are very shady about their business. They’ll have you meet them around a sketchy-ass alleyway or building that’s infested with homeless people, aids and rats. Then some sketchy shit will go down with not enough weed or money and it’ll just be a shit show.

Jamaican Chef isn’t one of those drug dealers. He rocks all his weed around his neck like he’s Flava Flav so you know what you’re getting. He’ll supply you with Chef’s finest Jamaican weed balls wherever and whenever with no strings attached. You wanna get baked on the beach during your vacation? No problem. Jamaican Chef will be there in a flash. He doesn’t give a shit that there’s cops right behind him either. He’s probably supplying those cops with the finest kush in all of Jamaica. All Jamaican Chef cares about is being the #1 drug dealer in the world.
