Last week, Canada became the second country in the world to fully legalize adult sales and use of recreational cannabis. While this new law marks a historic turning point in the progressive acceptance of marijuana after decades of prohibition, it has also placed the country in violation of several international drug treaties. This week, the Russian Foreign Ministry released a statement criticizing Canada’s decision to legalize weed, calling it a “gross and deliberate violation by the country of its international legal obligations,” UAWire reports.
The UN has it and the others banned, and anyone in the UN is therefore supposed to be obligated to ave it banned too.

Well, that is comical.
I really do not think it matters what Russia says about it. If Russia cared very much for international law, Alexander Litvinenko would still be alive, its businesses would be run without the involvement of the Russian mob, its intelligence agents would not be penetrating the upper levels of western governance by way of sweet deals with people like the British PM, or rumoured financial connections to members of the US government and affiliates thereof.
No, I think Russia has been more than shady enough that their concerns can be ignored without over much fuss.
