The United Nations
has declared Colorado
and Washington in violation of international treaties after passing
ballot measures to legalize the recreational use of marijuana.
taking a closer look at this interesting story from the Current
Raymond Yans, head of the
International Narcotics Control Board (INCB), is urging U.S. federal
officials to challenge ballot measures in Colorado and Washington
that legalize recreational use of marijuana for adults 21 and over.
Yans called for the U.S. federal
government to "resolve the contradiction between the federal and
state levels in the implementation of that country’s obligations
under the drug control conventions" and demanded it "take the
necessary measures to ensure full compliance with the
international drug control treaties within the entire territory
of the United States, in order to protect the health and
well-being of its citizens."
Both Colorado and Washington are holding
off on plans to regulate and tax marijuana while waiting to see if
the federal government will ignore the results of the ballot
measures and enforce federal laws against marijuana use.
The community responds:
"United Nations, you need to take a better look at what's really
going on in this "War on Drugs." It's an ABSOLUTE FAILURE. The
United States has been fighting this War since the '60s and not
only has it not worked, it's gotten worse year by year. Speak
with some hospitals and doctors who are treating people for
gunshot wounds as a result of unregulated drug activity."
"What you are
experiencing here is humans trying to be self determined
crashing into an impermeable impenetrable thick heavy glass ceilling composed of layers of corruption that we have never
been taught about in school and that we have been told do not
exist in the power structure that directs, decides, and controls
our society. Good luck in your quest for herbal freedom. You
will need a lot of luck to succeed on that. A LOT of luck."
"Now I need
some just to deal with this nonsense. I think they just want to
keep America out of their stash!"
"The United Nations? Now
THERE is a force for good... sarcasm off!"
United Nations Moves to Impose
...International Treaties on States

The United Nations has declared Colorado
and Washington in violation of international treaties following
ballot initiatives that have legalized the recreational use of
The President of the International
Narcotics Control Board (INCB),
Raymond Yans, has voiced,
“grave concern about the outcome of
recent referenda in the United States of America that would
allow the non-medical use of cannabis by adults in the states of
Colorado and Washington, and in some cities in the states of
Michigan and Vermont,” according to an INCB press release.
The INCB is a quasi-judicial “control
organ” for the implementation of the United Nations drug
Mr. Yans said the referenda in Colorado
and Washington state,
“are in violation of the
international drug control treaties, and pose a great threat to
public health and the well-being of society far beyond those
Yans cited the standard nanny-state
reasons for dictating what consenting adult Americans put in their
bodies, including mental disorders, and cited the welfare of
children as a primary concern of the internationalist organization.
“Legalization of cannabis within
these states would send wrong and confusing signals to youth and
society in general, giving the false impression that drug abuse
might be considered normal and even, most disturbingly, safe.
Such a development could result in
the expansion of drug abuse, especially among young people, and
we must remember that all young people have a right to be
protected from drug abuse and drug dependency,” the globalist
Yans called for the U.S. federal
“resolve the contradiction between
the federal and state levels in the implementation of that
country’s obligations under the drug control conventions” and
demanded it “take the necessary measures to ensure full
compliance with the international drug control treaties within
the entire territory of the United States, in order to protect
the health and well-being of its citizens.”
In other words, the United Nations
insists the federal government perpetuate the destructive and
expensive War on Drugs that has fostered a massive prison-industrial
complex and ruined countless lives over the last few decades.
As a consequence of the War on Drugs,
the prison population in the United States has
quadrupled since 1980, primarily as a direct result of mandatory
sentencing for drug crimes.
Around half of all inmates in federal
there for drug offenses and more than 45 percent of all drug
possession arrests in the U.S. last year were for
marijuana, according to the FBI’s annual crime report.
United Nations supports this insanity with its call for the United
States to obey international drug treaties.
Marijuana legalization is a classic
states’ rights and federalist issue.
“States should be allowed to
make a lot of these decisions,”
Rand Paul said earlier this week when asked about marijuana
“I want things to be decided more at a local basis,
with more compassion. I think it would make us as Republicans
“I think, for example, we should tell
young people, ‘I’m not in favor of you smoking pot, but if you get
caught smoking pot, I don’t want to put you in jail for 20 years,’”
Fortunately, the tide is slowly turning
and many states are finally realizing the War on Drugs is not only
grossly unfair, but an immense waste of law enforcement resources
and tax payer money.
The United Nations is attempting to
insert itself in decisions made by the states and by doing so is
acting to perpetuate the War on Drugs.
Americans should not only
ignore the United Nations and the INCB Secretariat, but the federal
government as well when it comes to decisions made by citizens on
the local level.
