    The UN urges the POTUS to challenge state laws that legalize pot. Treaty violation!?

    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."

    U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said last week that he was in the last stages of reviewing the Colorado and Washington state laws. Holder said he was examining policy options and international implications of the issue. Marijuana is illegal under federal law.

    Seems the only alternatives are to:

    1. willfully violate the treaty

    2. enforce federal law within states

    Interesting.

    I does appear to be a conundrum.

    US treaties do trump state law so there seems to be a violation of an international treaty.

    I'd be curious as to what type of remedy there would be.

     

    "The entire international system is based on countries respecting the rules, and there's a broad fabric of international treaties that are part and parcel to that," said David Johnson, the U.S. delegate to the Vienna-based board.

     



    Well, not quite. Article 6 is often misinterpreted, as you may have.  Not sure of the particulars of this case, but the oft cited "treaties trump the constitution", which you haone to done directly, is really not so.  Article 6 is not a self-destruct button.

    I could read what your name meant the moment I saw it. I just had no reason to mention it until a pot related post came up that you commented on. And when I did, you basically admitted to being a pot head. Good job, stoner.

    Good point.  I think ignoring them would be more cost effective though.





    Is that not the same as "willfully violating"?
