Want conservatives to support legal marijuana? Here’s how you do it:

March 5, 2014

Have the U.N. tell us we can’t:

Raymond Yans is president of the International Narcotics Control Board (INCB), the U.N. agency charged with monitoring the implementation of anti-drug treaties…

…In an INCB report issued on Tuesday, Yans scolds the U.S. government for letting Colorado and Washington repeal criminal penalties for production, possession, and distribution of cannabis. “INCB reiterates that these developments contravene the provisions of the drug control conventions, which limit the use of cannabis to medical and scientific use only,” he writes. “INCB urges the Government of the United States to ensure that the treaties are fully implemented on the entirety of its territory.”

International law requires us to keep dope illegal!

Keep this up, United Nations, and pretty soon we’ll have vending machines selling loose joints right across the street from school. Unless our liberals change their minds, that is. Liberals love international law.

Note: Jacob Sullum casts some doubt on Mr. Yans’ claims at the link, because Jacob Sullum is a total buzz kill, man.
