    U.S. states' pot legalization not in line with international law: U.N. agency

    (Reuters) - Moves by some U.S. states to legalize marijuana are not in line with international drugs conventions, the U.N. anti-narcotics chief said on Wednesday, adding he would discuss the issue in Washington next week.

    Residents of Oregon, Alaska, and the U.S. capital voted this month to allow the use of marijuana, boosting the legalization movement as cannabis usage is increasingly recognized by the American mainstream.

    The UN was high when they made the announcement.

    The USA doesn't give a **** if the UN says no quite frankly.

    The benefits are there, we will capitalize on them.

    Since when has anybody given a flying rat's ass what the UN has to say about anything?

    And really, AliHaji? Like the UN is going to overrule the US citizenry? The only reason they have that policy in the first place is because we ****ing told them to. They're our bitches not the other way around.

    It is already the law of the land - it simply is not the enforced law of the land any more.

    The current law of the land says pot is illegal, whether we actually signed a treaty to that effect I don't know.

    Good luck with that. Just like the UN gun ban.
