taking this case here:

Supreme Court rejects Texas sex-toy case

WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court refused Monday to consider whether a Texas law making it a crime to promote sex toys shaped like sexual organs is unconstitutional.

Colorado, Kansas and Louisiana have held such laws unconstitutional, while Georgia, Mississippi and Texas have upheld them, said Acosta’s lawyer in urging the Supreme Court to take the case.

since several states have ruled the law unconstitutional and others have upheld it, isn't it up to the supreme court to determine when something is or not? it seems like they were too afraid of social fall-out to make a ruling on this. is our country's constitution going to be interpreted state by state now?

Man, it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy to have Mississippi continuously be mentioned when talking about regression and general backwardsness! Yeah MS!
