    Heh... yeah, that could get entertaining

    /as for myself, f*ck the UN
  • Why would the UN care if marijuana is legalized?

    This is my question.
  • Ambivalence: Why would the UN care if marijuana is legalized?


    Undermines anti-drug policies through the majority of member-nations of the UN if the most stringent anti-drug nation, the standard bearer as it were, relaxed its stance pursuant to ballot initiatives. They care because it hits them in the wallet through campaign contributions, grafting and kickbacks. Also because the leading politicians in those nations are ostensibly anti-drug, and as such would have the most to lose if their opponents could gain a foothold through this change in policy.

    This is my armchair diplomat analysis. Amsterdam need not apply.

    Because the War On Drugs® went international years ago and the powers that be in the US pulled the "Assasin of Youth" scam on them

    Well, the article says the letter is from the head of the UN anti-drug watchdog agency. So presumably he's trying to make sure he has continued employment.

    The anti-UN crowd is already a farce, what with believing both that the U.N. is a bunch of powerless letter writers, and at the same time a superpowered shadowy cabal that is conquering America from within.
  • Are there weederies in Washington yet? I'll be there in a few weeks

    Suck-up: Morning, Mr. Griffin. Nice day.
    Peter: It's a little cloudy.
    Suck-up: It's absolutely cloudy, one of the worst days I've seen in years. So, good news about the Yankees.
    Peter: I hate the Yankees.
    Suck-up: Pack of cheaters, that's what they are. I love your tie.
    Peter: I hate this tie.
    Suck-up: It's awful, it's gaudy, it's gotta go.
    Peter: And I hate myself.
    Suck-up: I hate you, too. You make me sick, you fat sack of crap.
    Peter: But I'm the president.
    Suck-up: The best there is.
    Peter: But you just said you hated me.
    Suck-up: But not you, the president, the you who said you hated you who...love, hate, Yankees, clouds...[head explodes]
    Valet: I'll have that fixed for you tomorrow, sir.

    came here to mention this.
  • Hi, can I have a pen and some paper?
    Sure.
    Do you have a stamp and envelope?
    Yes, right here. Take two.
    Thanks. This letter is for you. I'm keeping the pen.
  • Hey, UN! Would you prefer that we enact capital punishment for drug possession like so many other countries?

    Conspiracy theorists and cognitive dissonance go hand-in-hand. Sometimes they even do a little polka.

    It might impact US drug tourism to other countries.
  • Ambivalence: Why would the UN care if marijuana is legalized?


    We're signatories to a treaty, the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs.
  • Hey UN, why don't you work on trying to stop massacres of thousands of people you are supposed to be protecting - A JOB YOU MAJORLY SUCK AT BY THE WAY - and stop worrying about state laws in the U.S.

    Yea that's what I thought too. Too many people across the globe have died because of the War on MJ. If the leading enforcer of drug laws suddenly relaxed on it, people would be rightfully pissed (which they should be anyway).

    This is becoming more and more about saving face. These politicians are starting to sweat under the light and they don't like it.
  • Ah, American right-wingers and their UN hatred.

    Funny, you liked the UN when their troops had to come and rescue your elite rangers in Mogadishu.

    Didn't those swamp Germans just make it fairly annoying as a foreigner to smoke the ganja?
  • I'm not anti-UN, and I've never smoked weed (or done any sort of recreational drug, legal or otherwise), but in this case, I say fark the UN, and legalize that sh*t at the federal level. Lord knows America needs all the revenue it can get.
  • Do if I am reading this right, they want to UN-legalize grass.
