UN Drug Czar: States Can't Legalize Marijuana Under International Law

Activist Post

The president of the UN's International Narcotics Control Board (INCB), Raymond Yans, wrote a threatening letter to the U.S. government to challenge marijuana legalization in Colorado and Washington.

Apparently the voters in Colorado and Washington were unaware that they would have to not only fight off the federal government, but global drug czars as well in their effort to exercise their local sovereignty.

Mr. Yans stated that “these developments are in violation of the international drug control treaties, and pose a great threat to public health and the well-being of society far beyond those states”.

Yans says marijuana legalization sends the wrong message to youths and society, “Legalization of cannabis within these states would send wrong and confusing signals to youth and society in general, giving the false impression that drug abuse might be considered normal and even, most disturbingly, safe."

Yans reminds the United States that they agreed to the 1961 Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, signed by 185 States, which decided to place cannabis under control and limit its use to medical purposes.

In the final section of his letter, Yans makes a veiled threat that the U.S. has an obligation to make sure their states are in compliance with U.N. conventions or they'll be in violation of the international treaty:
He further emphasized that States Parties have an obligation under the Conventions to ensure their full compliance with the conventions within their entire territory, including federated states and/or provinces. 
Mr. Yans recognized the commitment of the Government of the United States to resolve the contradiction between the federal and state levels in the implementation of that country’s obligations under the drug control conventions. The INCB President requested the Government of the United States to take the necessary measures to ensure full compliance with the international drug control treaties within the entire territory of the United States, in order to protect the health and well-being of its citizens.
It is clear that the INCB has not been listening to nearly every independent study presented to the U.N. in the past few years about how badly the drug war has failed to "protect the health and well-being" global citizens. The most recent report in 2011 by the Global Commission on Drugs concluded the global war on drugs has failed, and argues that governments should end the criminalization of drug use.

This threatening letter by an international body would seem to indicate that voters in the U.S. have very little or no self-determination or democracy left in their localities when it comes to determining issues as minor as the legalization of a relatively benign dried flower.

Here is the INCB's contact information if you'd like to send them a message:

Bullshit mr yans, what they pose a danger to is your UN drug monopoly on everything to the afghan poppy to good ol mexican boo, but your objection is noted, the Rothschild monopoly cannot allow competition.

But it is "Ok" for the legal narcotic (alcohol) to be on the shelf in plain view of all ages. Meanwhile cannabis is not a narcotic, making Mr. Yan another ignorant politician. Shit man, even the mythological Jesus consumed cannabis at the meal of the "Last Supper" in the sweet meats (deserts spiced with marijuana) that were on the table.

Marijuana is legal (or decriminalized) in Argentina, Cambodia, Cyprus, Costa Rica, Croatia, Ecuador, Netherlands, parts of Pakistan, Peru, Switzerland, and parts of Uruguay. I don;t see the United Nations throwing their weight around in those countries. And I don;t see the United Nations mentioning the heroin flowing out of US-controlled Afghanistan.

Marijuana is a danger only to commercial tobacco and alcohol corporations (and their tax revenues), and heroin and cocaine whose distribution is controlled by organized crime and CIA.

The politics of contraband; it would seem that the United Nations has taken on the role of enforcer to protect the profits of the politically connected criminals.

The UN has no legal authority to say anything about our States rights. In fact if they don't stop threatening I think we should send the Marines after them. They are after all a far far more powerfull and dangerous terrorist organization than anything in the Middle East outside of israel......

tetrahydrocannabinol is an alcohol according to the standard IUPAC nomenclature. the regulation of alcohol in the us is determined by amendment 21, which puts alcoholic regulation under the control of the several states.

the UN press release is coordinated with federal policy - the un guy's a shill. the story gives back cover for the crack-down that the release makes so obvious. they can claim that treaty law makes "enforcement" a regrettable necessity. it does not. all treaties are subject to constitutional procedure.

I sent him a letter by E-Mail:
Attention Robert Yans, In Regard Your Threatening Letter to "We The People" Regarding "Recreational Cannabis".

Mr Yans,

I have to wonder if you're a stock-holder in the Privatized Prison Scheme, or are from the same ilk that wants industrial Hemp lumped in with it to keep Big Industrial Cotton, Paper, Biofuel and Pharmaceuticals "fat and sassy". Where does the UN get off threatening a Sovereign Nation in the first place? I find it unbelievably Parochial that ANYONE, let alone a UN Minister would maintain such views and still hold a position. Your stance is unworthy of the stated aims and priorities of the UN.

We have a world with limited resources. The failed, and yes you heard it right, failed "War on Drugs" in the US is now budgeted by the US Congress at excess of $30 Billion, with likely triple or quadruple that being spent by the States...except it's not THEM footing the bill, it is, of course, "We The People". In order to do that and similar "Security-Based and Interdiction Programs" costs Global Taxpayers Trillions. Like Cannabis Prohibition, most of the Laws, their Enforcement and the Punishments meted out all stem from one "Ism" or another.

If you have a belief system you fell is worthy-live it. If you consistently do better than the rest of us on every level, we'll most definitely want to hear more.

If you want to continue a "War On Drugs"? Well, friend, dig the bucks out of your OWN pocket-hey, network with your friends who share the view with you, but the other 5-6 Billion of "Us The Over-Taxed" are no longer interested in bank-rolling your Philosophical Agenda.

Perhaps, if you're unable to separate your personal views from your Global Responsibilities, you should consider a different line of work.

With All Due Respect,
R Andrew Ohge

If citizens would simply recognize that any system of law is only a sack of bullshit! There is no law that cannot be neutralized by the creation of another law or process that could be applied depending on perception. Another work-around is a department nullification policy.

Unless any conflicts are resolved regarding e.g. jurisdiction or application, both "laws" will remain valid - sort of a quantumlexical thing! Look at all the subterfuge denying access to obama's pedigree and show results!

The whole drug issue depends on whether or not a crime is officially witnessed by an authority. If the authority is "looking the other way" did a crime really occur? Police are notorious for failing to observe selected violations. The NY illegal shakedown quotas can be applied in a reverse sense - if you think someone is doing drugs, run away.

Anonymous said...

Mr. Yans does not understand the difference between a national and a federal government. The U.S. government is not a national government. Its jurisdiction over the states is limited to very few inter-state relations. Its exclusive jurisdiction is only over the federal zone, i.e., DC, territories and miliary/government enclaves or land ceded by the sovereign states. That is why the states can nullify federal statutes and why the Feds have to ask permission to carry out activities in the states. County sheriffs can throw them out of the counties. The lines have blurred, it is true, but that is becaue of entitlements and federal bribes, but many of the states are drawing that line again, very clearly. Treaties made with other countries involves the U.S. federal zone, not the 50 several states, Mr. Yans. They are not party to it.

These international treaties must also be taking our Constitutional rights to our Selves into consideration to be a valid law. If the UN decree that slavery is once again a valid labor market,,, the UN could be ignored as well. The fact is our Law trumps international law in the case of personal freedoms to live in your personal flavor of freedom. Our ninth amendment is the tool to keep the feds away, by making them honor the oath they themselves took to uphold our Constitution. Our ninth amendment demands the end to all prohibitions of any "intoxicant"*

When it comes to policy questions, Liberty should always prevail if it becomes an argument between state power or personal rights. The prohibition policy is the invalid one.

* the key word to plug into our ninth amendment as you read it and think of the other 'enumerated right' with in the constitution.

What most do not understand is that this is no longer a government. It is so obvious that we have been taken over in stealth mode and morphed into a corporate fascist regime hell bent on destroying this land, the planet and murdering as many as possible under the banner of population control. Constitutional freedoms do not exist in such twisted demented minds.

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.”
Marcus Tullius Cicero

I don't see a threat in Yan's comments, just a reminder of obligations under international law.

Which can easily be ignored, by the simples means of just ignoring him.

There is also an international law (as well as the UN Charter) which makes invading a country which is not an imminent threat (Vietnam? Afghanistan? Iraq? Libya? Somalia? Yeman? Pakistan?) a war crime.

If we can ignore the laws we signed about war crimes, we can certainly ignore a law which requires that marijuana use be treated as a criminal offense.

The UN does many good things, but the way it is structured, a few powerful nations run the show.

Until the UN becomes a democratic body, we are not obliged to take it seriously, since legitimacy is based on the consent of the governed. Ironically, the most armed and dangerous nations on earth make up the Security Counsel, which can ignore the will of 200 nations who are less armed and dangerous.

So, as throughout history, might makes right.
This is not to gainsay the many worthy things the UN does, but to point out that when it comes to war crimes, the top war criminals are in charge.

A UN official whining about states making marijuana legal is actually funny, not threatening in the least.

Not only can Mr. Yan not control the states of Colorado and Washington, or the Obama administration, the Obama administration cannot even control its own DEA. The only thing that saves us from the overarching tyranny of Big Government is incompetence and confusion in government. If every crime were detected and prosecuted, we would all be in prison.

Only inefficiency saves us from tyranny. God spare us an efficient government.

Drugs weren't even illegal till the 60's. If they'd left thing alone, it wouldn't be the wide spread problem it is today because only small certain fraction of people even used drugs. Illegalization of anything makes it an instant attraction and money maker creating a self made criminalized society. Prohibition is the proof of it. Can you say, job security?

Bliar T. Longley said...

After several decades of research, involving thousands and thousands of hours of work, several court cases, and lots of political activities, my view of the United Nations is that it is primarily a tool of the international bankers.

The international bankers are the supreme organized crime gang, the biggest gangsters, the banksters. The deeper one digs into the history of international organizations, the more one will find the hand of the international banksters behind everything.

The banksters are the only ones that benefit all the way around from the drug wars. The biggest banks skim the cream of the profits from illegal drugs, by laundering the money made.

THE BASIC SYSTEM IS DEBT SLAVERY, BACKED BY WARS BASED ON DECEITS.

The United Nations is primarily a tool of professional liars, and immaculate hypocrites, to promote impossible ideals that actually make the opposite happen in the real world. Of course, there are lots of "useful idiots" who do not understand that! However, the pyramidion people, at the top of the social pyramid, understand what is really going on, and that is what they really intend to happen.

The facts are that the whole world is controlled by huge lies, backed up with lots of violence. The real system is a global fascist plutocracy, and pot prohibition fits into that system. Taking the single best plant on the planet for people and asserting that it was "almost as bad a murder" was classic propaganda, deliberately designed to divide and conquer, and to actually cause everything to happen diametrically opposite to what the professional liars and immaculate hypocrites promoting that drug war said they were doing.

The drug wars segued from slavery and racism. The drug wars were a cleverly coded way to achieve the same things as slavery and racism did before that. All of those things were deliberately designed and implemented, and the United Nations was always a part of that overall strategy of building fascist police states, in order to serve the interests of the fascist plutocracy.

The United Nations is a dead end organization, made and maintained by professional liars, in order to make the opposite happen in the real world of everything that they would hypocritically say were their intentions. The root problem has always been the monetary system, and the central core of that was the funding of the political processes.

The ability of those with the most money to enter into positive feedback situations, where their profit from fraud could be reinvested in more frauds, has been the primary factor that controlled the puppet politicians that they funded, and the evil international organizations that they funded, to promote their ulterior purposes of the DEBT SLAVERY, BACKED BY WARS BASED ON DECEITS SYSTEMS.

Marijuana laws were single simplest symbol, and the most extreme example, of the way that the whole world is controlled by huge lies, backed by violence, for the benefit of a few people at the top of the social pyramid system, while causing suffering for everybody else at the bottom. Therefore, the United Nations was primarily EVIL, and the single most evil thing the UN did was promote the war against marijuana, which is more than 75% of the war against drugs.

That war is only a "failure" if one fails to understand that what it really did was what is was really intended to do.

Doug_Wilson said...

It's too bad that most of the comments so far are from UN-hating rightwingers who, in their mindless rage against the UN, are completely missing the point. This is about a treaty, a legal document which the U.S. has become a party to, and has conferred certain power on the UN to use in enforcement. Yes, it may have been stupid in hindsight for the U.S. to sign a treaty so strong, but that's on us, not the UN.

It also helps to read the treaty. There is provision for amendment.

And stop worrying about the black helicopters and troops in blue hats. The UN is quite toothless, unless the major countries like us make a big deal out of something and lead a move to impose sanctions. So far Holland has escaped them despite its tolerance for cannabis, and nobody thinks anybody is going to mess with us.

But the concept of the rule of law is in issue here, and we should attend to it by trying to amend the treaty.

I agree with anonymous 6:26. The UN is a US puppet. All these so-called wars on terror alledgedly waged by the UN in Iraq, Afghanistan etc, it's really the US with a few tokens from other countries. It's really the US government that forced these international anti-drug laws on the world over a half century ago! Since then it has become known that marijuana is not a narcotic, or even a drug. A drug is a purified compound of a single chemical substance extracted from a plant or made synthetically and patented. "patent medicines" Marijuana is the most powerful medicinal herb the world has ever known. Like other herbs, the flowers and leaves are consumed in their natural whole form. The pharmaceutical industry is one of the main forces keeping marijuana illegal. They stand to lose billions of dollars as people discover the healing power of marijuana and other plants. Prohibition of the most potent medicinal herb was only the beginning, as the FDA, (nown run by a former head of Monsanto), is trying to outlaw all herbs and nutrients, making them available by prescription only, to further enrich Big Pharma.

The president of the UN's International Narcotics Control Board (INCB), Raymond Yans can kiss my ass!! What gives the UN the right to dictate how our country is run? I think we should cut off all funding to the UN and withdraw from that worthless organization. Mr. Yans why don't you do somehting to help the poor, abused folks in Palestine? Why don't you stop the Israeli genocide in Palestine? Keep your nose out of our business and attempt to do something worthwhile.

I think the UN should be disbanded. They should at LEAST have to finance themselves without our help.

Nobody can ban a wild growing herb. Maybe the UN will try to ban dandelions next.

Alcohol kills yet its legal. The only threat Marijuana poses is a world of more lax people and less violence. Since Pot is illegal kids have a greater opportunity to buy it where as alcohol and ciggs are harder for them to get ahold of since in is regulated and taxed. OPEN YOUR EYES YAN. Maybe go back to school and educate yourself better cus you sound like a dumb arse

Setting aside the fact that the 1961 treaty was pushed by America in the first place as it was worried about Marijuana coming from Mexico (look how well that turned out!) It is notable that Mr Yans a Belgian does not mention his neighbour The Netherlands where they get around this by 'decriminalising' the drug. Perhaps he is worried about the Dutch attitude gaining more international credibility making the laws regarding Cannabis in his own country look absurdly outdated.

the thing is,the County Sheriff trumps all authorities,it is up to him to stop corrupt feds or U.N. agents...from trying to say that the U.N. is the king of the hill...it is a joke...send a message to Mr Yans and tell him to suck it.

I am NOT A GLOBAL CITIZEN. I am a citizen of the United States, resident citizen of the state of Mississippi. According to OUR CONSTITUTION, NOT A GLOBAL GOVERNMENT, the states have the power to decide local laws, voted on by their residents, not even the Federal Government has the power to interfere in the laws of the individual states. The UN HAS NO AUTHORITY OVER THE CITIZENS OF THE US, no matter what "agreement" the Federal government has made. FUCK THE UN!!!!!!

I am still going smoke it regardless what UN or anyone else says. My Law permits me to do so, and I shall give no one the rights over me. The only way they can stop me smoking it, is to shoot me.

I predicted this would happen awhile back, but I think that the US is constitutionally sovereign from foreign rulers and laws.

Why everyone trying to legalize in the country. All knows that won't happen so if any one wants to smoke up just buy and enjoy. Why we spend time for useless works.

THe states are NOT under the Federal governments control. ONLY their "territories" are. Those include Washington DC and Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands etc... It used to include Alaska and Hawaii until they become Soveriegn States and it has been changed. If we are now a dictatorship (we are) because we are told over and over we are a "democracy" which we NEVER were, we are or WERE a REPUBLIC!!! Cuba is a democracy! Sheeple everywhere

Not illegal drugs, even the '60s. Today, the widespread problem, not because It is only people about using a certain percentage of a small left, if they work alone. Criminalized society money maker made personnel and immediately make itself create anything Illegalization.
