I like to write "snarky" openers to articles like this, but as this is the second time this Yans creature has stuck his nose in our business, the Article's Author and I are on the same page. Here's how J. D. Heyes summed it up:
Americans have differing opinions about the wisdom of marijuana legalization but most of us would agree that no matter what we think about it personally, it is an issue for Americans to decide.
So, an admonishment by a United Nations agency urging the U.S. government to sue the states of Colorado and Washington, whose citizens recently voted to support pot legalization in their states, should be dismissed out of hand as the carnival sideshow that it is, right?
If only it were that easy.
You see, while such decisions should be left for Americans and states to decide on their own, decades of allowing our leaders to strike bargains (otherwise known as "treaties") with the UN has created an impediment to liberty, thus allowing an unelected global body a say in our country's political processes. Some call that "civilized" and "reasonable;" George Washington called such arrangements an "entangling alliance" we should strive to avoid.
Simply put, it's time for Holder and Obama to take a stand, but NOT one that kowtows to an un-elected foreign entity, but one that shows respect for the will of the people who vote.
