Prompted by “UN Investigates U.S. and Uruguay for Violation of Drug Treaties”: http://www.hightimes.com/read/un-investigates-us-and-uruguay-violation-drug-treaties
I scanned those treaties, and provisions therein state national constitutionality is required for any impact.
The Commerce Clause (“To regulate Commerce, with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes”) is the sole constitutional basis for the war on some drugs.
The enormous “elephant in the room” is the Commerce Clause is so terribly vague, shifting political forces applied towards judicial matters pertaining to that clause literally threaten the integrity of our Constitution supposedly primarily set to protect the public from abusive law in the “land of the free”.
Feel free to read my new Liberty Shield page for much more detail on this subject, but suffice it to say here the logical and civilized choice is for our nation to repeal the Controlled Substances Act as blatantly unconstitutional (despite obviously corrupt judicial practices to the contrary), which then righteously ends our obligation to uphold those treaties.
Failed and abusive law needs to be immediately replaced with successful and perpetually improving education (formal and otherwise) and scientific advancements towards better health for actual public safety.
Drug addiction is no where near as dangerous as drug prohibition addiction, based upon the whole truth (and nothing but).
