UN official calls for marijuana ballot rollback
AP / November 20, 2012

VIENNA (AP) — The head of the U.N. drug watchdog agency is urging U.S. federal officials to challenge ballot measures in Colorado and Washington that decriminalized possession of small amounts of marijuana for adults 21 and over.

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

Yans heads the International Narcotics Control Board.

I would refer this idiot to the 11th Amendment to the US Constitution. Enough said.

I would hope that even those Americans opposed to the new marijuana laws would support the voters against these globalist tyrants.

I’m not for decriminalizing pot, but the U.N. can go pound sand. They have no business sticking their damned noses in our affairs.

Perhaps this will discredit the UN among its liberal supporters in the US

Not what I would have expected from the UN.

But then again, this just confirms it - the UN is wrong 100% of the time.

Very strange.

Use of cannabis has been legal in the Netherlands for years. Britain simple does not enforce their drug laws where cannabis is concerned and yet I have never heard of the UN worrying about the how these nations laws would send the wrong message abroad about this dreadful drug.

I hope the UN isn’t expecting the US to be the leader to world any more. After all Obama is a leader from behind kind of despot.

This is just too humorous.

I can imagine the lefties who live and die for Agenda 21 now being put in a bind over one of their heartfelt issues by the people they look to for help in deconstructing our Constitution.

What ever will they do when their imaginary world clashes with reality?

There is no choice, I'll take the pot heads any day over those bastards at the u.n.

Tar and feather him. This is a democracy.
Demand reimbursement for all the dues the USA has payed to the UN. The UN is UNconstitutional and UNamerican. Defund the UN.

Re> I would hope that ... Americans ... would support the voters against these globalist tyrants.

Obama | Romney
55.8 | 41.7 Washington (12)
51.2 | 46.5 Colorado (9)

I should support them? They are already rotten from the inside. I suspect Arizona might resist UN interference. Probably not for much longer though. But these two are past the point.

It's the UN's wet dream to run international drug enforcement operations.

Just think of all the asset-forfeiture land they could acquire for the UN Empire.
