“We can see such a trend and we are watching the situation. But, of course, such laws fall out of line with the demands of these conventions,” Fedotov said commenting the results of a recent referendum held in three American states where the population voted for removing the ban on recreational consumption of light drugs.
Fedotov is planning to raise the subject with representatives of US federal authorities during his forthcoming visit to the United States.
“I can hardly imagine how that can be in line with the provisions of international conventions. The United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs has expressed the same stance which is fully shared by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime,” Fedotov went on to say.
Several US states held referendums on legalization of marijuana smoking for recreational purposes early in November. The populations of three states, including Oregon, Washington and Alaska, voted for the initiative.
