The U.N. attempts to thwart marijuana decriminalization laws in Washington and Colorado | THE JEENYUS CORNER

THE JEENYUS CORNER

By Alec Scheer

“A U.N. drug agency says the legalization of marijuana for recreational use in Colorado and Washington violates international drug treaties,” the Seattle Times reported on Tuesday, March 5th. “The International Narcotics Control Board urged the Barack Obama administration to challenge the legalization measures. It made its appeal in an annual drug report released Tuesday.”

The Constitution of the United States does not give the federal government the ability to control or regulate any substance. Therefore a super-governmental body, like the United Nations, does not have legislative authority over the United States. As Alexander Hamilton points out,

“A treaty cannot be made which alters the Constitution of the country, or which infringes any express exceptions to the power of the Constitution.”

James Madison supplied a similar sentiment when he said,

“I do not conceive that power is given to the President and the Senate to dismember the empire, or to alienate any great, essential right. I do not think the whole legislative authority to have this power.”

The Libertarian Party of Washington strongly opposes the United Nation’s attempt to thwart marijuana decriminalization laws passed by Washington and Colorado.
