We don't have one government for the entire world yet, but we do for the world of drugs, and that governing body is not happy with Colorado, Washington, and by extension, the U.S.
Reuters reports that Raymond Yans, president of the International Narcotics Control Board (INCB), said the U.S. is doing an "insufficient" job of preventing the growing, selling, or possession of the globally banned drug.
The central U.N. policymaking body for drug-related matters, the INCB monitors the global drug war to ensure it continues. Critics of it say the U.S. can simply defy the global treaty the way it defies many other treaties — like treaties limiting the use of landmines, or treaties protecting the rights of the disabled.
