World Weed - The WTO—the stoner's new best friend. By Tim Wu
World Weed - The WTO—the stoner's new best friend. By Tim Wu: "the strange status of marijuana may also bring down the scrutiny of a different entity altogether: the World Trade Organization and its powerful condemnation of inconsistent national laws. The American ban on marijuana is what the WTO calls 'a barrier to trade,' raising the question: Can U.S. marijuana policy survive the tough scrutiny of world trade law?

WTO scrutiny of American drug laws may sound far-fetched, but then until recently so did WTO scrutiny of U.S. gambling or tax laws."
