    It seems they do. The 1961 UN Convention was ratified by the US and treaties have the force of law except where they
    violate the Constitution. Only way around that would be to withdraw from the treaty or claim that smoking pot is protected by the
    ninth amendment.

    As a practical matter though it doesn't mean much. No one listens to the U.N., not even the Dutch.

    All the more reason to ditch "international law."

    Only on treaty ratification, see the US Constitution.

    Better smoke em while you got em, because the UN wants to take away your drugs.
    The only answer to the UN on this is: So? Who cares what the hell you think? Take us off your list of callers please.

    The Senate only advises and consents. Primary treaty making power lies with the President.

    The United States is a sovereign nation.

    It is none of the UN's business, nor of any other outsiders, what laws we make and enforce within the borders of our own nation.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    They dont. The guy is just doing his job, as is the UN, where drugs are "bad and illegal" because that is what the UN members have agreed on. If you have to blame anyone, blame decades of conservative thinking on drugs in the west including the US, because that is what has defined the official view of the UN.. which this guy is only following.
