    UN: Colo., Wash. legal pot violates drug treaties

    A United Nations-based drug agency urged the United States government on Tuesday to challenge the legalization of marijuana for recreational use in Colorado and Washington, saying the state laws violate international drug treaties.
    The International Narcotics Control Board made its appeal in an annual drug report. It called on Washington, D.C., to act to "ensure full compliance with the international drug control treaties on its entire territory."
    UN dictating us policies??

    Is this a cautionary tale of where globalization is taking us?

    Is this ok because of treaties?

    If they are asking us to do our best to ensure it doesn't leave our borders, then I am ok with that. If they are saying we have to stop doing what we are doing because it violates a international rule, then I say we cease funding the UN. We need to save money anyways.

    Because they want our Federal Government to challenge the local government...let's pull funding.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    I await the arrival of the mighty blue helmeted troops to set this violation of international law right. F**k human rights, these evil weed ingesting folks must be jailed immediately! I just love UN logic.

    All the more reason to tell the UN to go to h***!!!

    The UN is the biggest waste of time and money that I can see.

    Yep. Obviously, during such times of world peace and harmony, the UN must address the serious issue of decriminalized marijuana consumption in a few US states. It makes me wonder what they are smoking?

    Would love to see how long the U.N. would last without U.S backing.

    You think someone at the UN thinks they can make more money off of Pot if it stays illegal.
