United Nations has declared Colorado & Washington in violation of international treaties

November 22, 2012

I know that I've provided more than 1 link, but for those that would criticise me, you can use Opera and side tabs you know, as opposed to just clicking back and forth. And just because I post more than 1 link, it doesn't mean that you have to call me names. For crying out loud!

"The head of the UN drug watchdog agency is pressing US federal officials to challenge ballot measures in Colorado and Washington that decriminalized marijuana, in blatant disrespect for what the people voted for in those states."-by John Glaser
