The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday asked for views from the Obama administration on a lawsuit filed by Nebraska and Oklahoma that contends Colorado’s regulation of marijuana is causing an increase in drug crimes in their states.

“The Solicitor General is invited to file a brief in this case expressing the views of the United States,” the court said in the order.

This kind of court order, called a CVSG — or call for the views of the solicitor general on behalf of the U.S. government — is commonly requested, and doesn’t necessarily mean the court is moving forward with the case.
