If conservatives needed another reason to support the implementation of the marijuana legalization ballot initiative Amendment 64, other than the 10th Amendment, the United Nations just gave it to them.
Reports the Associated Press:
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.
…He told The Associated Press on Tuesday he hopes Attorney General Eric Holder “will take all the necessary measures” to ensure that marijuana possession and use remains illegal throughout the U.S.
The only thing conservatives hate more than the federal government telling them what to do is the United Nations sticking their noses where they don’t belong.
We’re sorry, but lectures from an organization that puts Sudan on its Human Rights Council just don’t carry any credibility.
We might suggest Governor Hickenlooper tell both the feds and the UN where they can stick it on Amendment 64.
