Apparently it’s not just the feds who don’t like the states nullifying their unconstitutional drug laws.

Now they’re drawing the ire of the United Nations, which claims the legalization of marijuana isn’t in vogue with international drug conventions. Fortunately, they can’t do anything except whine and stomp their feet.

Just this month, Oregon, Alaska, and the District of Columbia voted to legalize marijuana. In 2012, Colorado and Washington voted to legalize recreational marijuana.

The U.N. Executive Director of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) Yury Fedotov stated that he is going to complain about it to the U.S. State Department and other U.N. Agencies.

“I don’t see how (the new laws) can be compatible with existing conventions,” he said.

We’ve got news for you, Fedotov. We the American people make decisions about what we put into our own bodies. We are not interested in what foreign conventions decided about our personal life choices.

It’s ironic he thinks that taking it up with the U.S. State Department is going to do any good. If the feds were willing to intervene, they would have done it by now.

This only goes to show that state nullification of unconstitutional federal laws works. If it didn’t, Fedotov wouldn’t be raising a stink about it with U.S. officials. When you upset meddling international agencies seeking to strip people of their rights, you know you’re on the right track.
