(Denver Post)   The UN sends a letter to Eric Holder asking him to challenge the CO and WA marijuana ballot measures. If Holder does nothing, the UN will send another letter telling them how disappointed they are   (denverpost.com) divider line 279

Well, let's see how the anti-UN crowd reacts to this one. Could be humorous.

Why would the UN care if marijuana is legalized?

Ambivalence: Why would the UN care if marijuana is legalized?


Undermines anti-drug policies through the majority of member-nations of the UN if the most stringent anti-drug nation, the standard bearer as it were, relaxed its stance pursuant to ballot initiatives. They care because it hits them in the wallet through campaign contributions, grafting and kickbacks. Also because the leading politicians in those nations are ostensibly anti-drug, and as such would have the most to lose if their opponents could gain a foothold through this change in policy.

This is my armchair diplomat analysis. Amsterdam need not apply.

Because the War On Drugs® went international years ago and the powers that be in the US pulled the "Assasin of Youth" scam on them

Well, the article says the letter is from the head of the UN anti-drug watchdog agency. So presumably he's trying to make sure he has continued employment.

The anti-UN crowd is already a farce, what with believing both that the U.N. is a bunch of powerless letter writers, and at the same time a superpowered shadowy cabal that is conquering America from within.

Suck-up: Morning, Mr. Griffin. Nice day.
Peter: It's a little cloudy.
Suck-up: It's absolutely cloudy, one of the worst days I've seen in years. So, good news about the Yankees.
Peter: I hate the Yankees.
Suck-up: Pack of cheaters, that's what they are. I love your tie.
Peter: I hate this tie.
Suck-up: It's awful, it's gaudy, it's gotta go.
Peter: And I hate myself.
Suck-up: I hate you, too. You make me sick, you fat sack of crap.
Peter: But I'm the president.
Suck-up: The best there is.
Peter: But you just said you hated me.
Suck-up: But not you, the president, the you who said you hated you who...love, hate, Yankees, clouds...[head explodes]

Hi, can I have a pen and some paper?
Sure.
Do you have a stamp and envelope?
Yes, right here. Take two.
Thanks. This letter is for you. I'm keeping the pen.

Hey, UN! Would you prefer that we enact capital punishment for drug possession like so many other countries?

We're signatories to a treaty, the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs.

Hey UN, why don't you work on trying to stop massacres of thousands of people you are supposed to be protecting - A JOB YOU MAJORLY SUCK AT BY THE WAY - and stop worrying about state laws in the U.S.

Yea that's what I thought too. Too many people across the globe have died because of the War on MJ. If the leading enforcer of drug laws suddenly relaxed on it, people would be rightfully pissed (which they should be anyway).

This is becoming more and more about saving face. These politicians are starting to sweat under the light and they don't like it.

Ah, American right-wingers and their UN hatred.

Funny, you liked the UN when their troops had to come and rescue your elite rangers in Mogadishu.

Didn't those swamp Germans just make it fairly annoying as a foreigner to smoke the ganja?
 
2012-11-20 07:32:31 PM  
I'm not anti-UN, and I've never smoked weed (or done any sort of recreational drug, legal or otherwise), but in this case, I say fark the UN, and legalize that sh*t at the federal level. Lord knows America needs all the revenue it can get.
 
2012-11-20 07:32:43 PM  
Do if I am reading this right, they want to UN-legalize grass.
 
2012-11-20 07:32:52 PM  
Shut up, UN.

And God help us if the Fed actually does try do challenge those laws.

How bout....Democracy works and the majority has spoken with a ballot initiative.
If this is rolled back, even though I do not live in either Colorado or Washington state, I am done with the US. This country is a lost cause when the paths PUT INTO PLACE TO EFFECT SYSTEM CHANGE are closed. Does anyone else see how serious of a problem this is?

naughtyrev: Well, let's see how the anti-UN crowd reacts to this one. Could be humorous.


I used to work for the UN (UNCTAD). On this particular issue, they can blow me. Neither they, nor holder, can make us waste more money on this failed drug policy. We're not going to throw people in jail and continue wasting billions of dollars pretending that smoking a joint warrants more government action than stealing billions of dollars.

Nobody from BP or Halliburton went to jail, but we're supposed to send some burnout, MS patient (me), or grandmom with cancer to jail... how the fark does that make sense to anyone?

Okay, Americans? Don't simultaneously biatch that the UN can't get anything done while also biatching that the UN's going to take all your guns away. Especially not while yet also vetoing absolutely everything they try to get done.

We didn't love them when they refused to go in because it was too dangerous.

Also, I'm not right-wing, I support socialized medicine, legalizing pot, taxing cap-gains at the same tax rate as salary income, abolishing the death penalty, and plenty of other left wing causes. Being against pointless oppression and for fairer outcomes and second chances doesn't make me a crazy right winger, it makes me proud to be a liberal.

Raymond Yans says the approvals send "a wrong message to the rest of the nation and it sends a wrong message abroad."

The message it sends is that the war on some drugs was been colossal waste of money, time, and resources; and the people profiting from it for the last 40 years have to get a real job.
