UN to Obama Regime: Punish Washington and Colorado for Undermining Global Drug War
Didn't know if this should have had an International Issues prefix or just U.S.—only 'cause of the UN sticking it's nose in our internal affairs. Thought they weren't suppose to do that.

Washington and Colorado approved measures decriminalizing recreational use of marijuana in their states.


In response, Raymond Yans, head of the UN’s International Narcotics Control Board, has called for Attorney General Eric Holder to ignore the law and continue cracking down on marijuana use and possession. Decriminalizing marijuana use, Yans insists, sends the “wrong message to the rest of the nation and it sends a wrong message abroad."
So are we a sovereign nation that was founded under a system of federalism or are we not? I find this outrageous. Wtf is the UN a wannabe govt in waiting?

Some things I never knew before:


The “war on drugs” didn’t begin with Richard Nixon. It is an outgrowth of a 1961 United Nations document called the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, which created the framework for a global drug prohibition jihad.

In that same year, the JFK administration published a proposal called “Freedom from War: The United States Program for General and Complete Disarmament in a Peaceful World,” also known as State Department Document 7277. That proposal, which remains the operational framework for U.S. arms control policy, called for the creation of a nationalized, militarized “homeland security force” – in other words, exactly the kind of overtly militarized law enforcement bodies that have been prosecuting the “war on drugs.”

Is there a more worthless world body than the UN?

The UN needs to shut the hell up and stay out our business.

Will Obama side with the UN or Americans? The outcome remains uncertain.

The US is the UN's mother.

The problem is that the US has some treaty obligations here... It's the same problem a lot of countries have run into.

if that is the case, why was the article talking about Holder ignoring the law? Wouldn't he simply be enforcing the federal law?

Just pay attention to the budget back there in Washington, okay? Colorado's got this one, fellas. We're not asking for your input, and we don't need your permission.
