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.

Quote:
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:

Quote:
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.”

Origin of the War on Drugs

The UN talks while people die crazy deaths everywhere in the world, for every humanitarian gesture i read about it, i read about its corruption and we all see first hand, year in and out, how very little it helps control violence in the world.

When was the last time UN forces truly defended something with sustained effort and blood?... the Balkans to an extent maybe... they observe as the world crumbles around them.

The UN cant get the world to agree on the color of crap.

I take it then that you think they don't have enough power? It's not like the world's policeman. It's a large forum for every sovereign country to come together.

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

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

From BEP's OP: "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.'"

I believe that they're encouraging Holder to ignore Colorado law.

Because state law conflicts with federal law in this case.

I don't think you understand. Those states are nullifying those federal laws—which they should. It's another check and balance on the federal govt. Real ID was nullified. States just did not implement it.

However, this is not a thread about our federal govt or the supremacy clause. It's about an international body thinking they can stick their noses in our internal affairs. And how too many treaties could result in more erosion.

You're welcome to start your own thread....so that Americans can hash it out and not foreigners in the UN.
