Without any authority to do so. But then, that the U.S. Constitution strictly forbids our gov’t from agreeing to any ‘deals’ that undermine said Constitution never stopped a good number of them, so I guess you have a point.
I own my own body but the gov’t regulates it (mostly) and that is it’s job.
You did NOT just say that. Please, tell me, you didn’t.
(Okay, after scraping jaw off floor, and taking a deep breath…)
Please point out any phrase in any document that gives the govenment the authority to regulate what any adult may do with his own body.
I don’t know if the 10th amendment applies here since this is the UN and not the actual federal government that is trying to ban marijuana. The UN is only urging federal officials in Colorado and Washington to block the legality of the drug because of the poor message it sends out. So, the UN and the government are doing it’s job as per the 10th amendment if it applies at all.
No, they are not.
#1. “Federal officials in Colorado?” Last I looked, federal officials hung out in D.C., whose job it is to oversee the business of the nation, not the indivudual states.
#2. “The poor message?” WHAT “poor message?” The one of Liberty to do with our own bodies as we so choose?
#3. IT’S NOT THE UN’S JOB, NOR BUSINESS TO EVEN ATTEMPT TO INFLUENCE U.S. LAW!
This is how politics works btw. If one group doesn’t like something the other group is doing. They are urged to challenge it and sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t. We’ll see if enough conservatives challenge the law in these states, but I highly doubt anything will come of this warning right now. Sure down the line if things get out of hand the UN may investigate and proceed with proper punishments.
That statement is so insane, I don’t even know how to BEGIN to address it.
