On BBC News we just read the following article, in which the UN argues that Uruguay’s decision to legalize cannabis is in violation of international law. This statement by the UN, is in our eyes once again a reason that space settlements should never join the UN. The United Nations is an organization which is hostile to national sovereignty and democracy.
Republic of Lagrangia supports the decision of the sovereign nation of Uruguay, because the “war on drugs” has utterly failed. And even worse tens of thousands of innocent people have been killed as result of gang wars caused by the criminalization of drugs. By opposing the only way to handle the problem of drug use, legalization and regulation of drugs, the UN is responsible for crimes against humanity.
And we have to keep in mind that UN law is not the same as international law.
