Ambivalence: Why would the UN care if marijuana is legalized?
Nadie_AZ: Ambivalence: Why would the UN care if marijuana is legalized?This is my question.
kmmontandon: naughtyrev: Well, let's see how the anti-UN crowd reacts to this one. Could be humorous.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.
Elandriel: 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.
dr_blasto: Ambivalence: Why would the UN care if marijuana is legalized?We're signatories to a treaty, the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs.
Contrabulous Flabtraption: Are there weederies in Washington yet? I'll be there in a few weeks
Suede head: 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.
p4p3rm4t3: Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.Can you Imagine the herp derp if they tried to make it criminalize it again?
LordJiro: 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.
