In Colorado, neighbors of a cannabis farmer are able to legally sue for the smell and various other “nuisances” that drop the value of their property a federal appeals court ruled on June 7.
Everybody needs good neighbors
A Federal District Court didn’t agree with Reilly’s claims, so the cannabis warehouse had opened in 2016. The Reilly’s filed an appeal against the court’s dismissal. They had an appeals trial including three-judges to have their case be heard.
The farm owners claimed that federal racketeering laws are interpreted as a collection of damages from the cannabis farm owner, despite Colorado State law’s legalization of cannabis.“The landowners have plausibly alleged at least one (racketeering) claim,” the judges wrote.
A lawyer based in Washington, Brian Barnes, legally represented on behalf of the Reilly’s and the anti-marijuana “nonprofit” group Safe Streets Alliance, says,”This is a tremendous victory for opponents of the marijuana industry.”
The panel of appeals gave opponents of cannabis a defeat in one case. Judges ruled that a lower court was right to dismiss a claim from anti-weed groups of weed-hating sheriffs in the state of Oklahoma, Colorado and Nebraska.
The law enforcement in those states tried hard to have the federal court to scrap Colorado’s legalization law. Talk about losers!
