U.S. States’ Pot Legalization Not In Line With International Law: U.N. Agency,
by Shorty Dawkins
In a recent article from reuters.com: U.S. states’ pot legalization not in line with international law: U.N. Agency, it states:
(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.
And this: “I don’t see how (the new laws) can be compatible with existing conventions,” Yury Fedotov, executive director of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), told reporters.
No doubt Reuters finds this troubling, as they have their knee continually bent to the grand and omnipotent UN, but I say: Who cares? Who cares what the UN thinks? It is none of their business. The recent laws allowing marijuana usage in several States is a matter of national sovereign business. It has nothing to do with the UN. If they claim the US joined a Treaty, or Pact, then if that Treaty violates our national Sovereignty, it is null and void, as far as the US is concerned, because it violates the Constitution. No US agent has any power to violate US sovereignty; pure and simple.
The matter at hand is Pot legalization, but it makes no difference what the matter is, if an agent of the United States agrees to a policy that violates US sovereignty, it is null and void from its inception. Nowhere in the Constitution is power granted to any Federal Government agent to relinquish national sovereignty. Nowhere. And, for that matter, nowhere in the Constitution does it give the National Government any power to regulate the substances we choose to eat, drink or smoke.
