Wait a second there potential adult marijuana users. While you may have your bong in place for Dec. 6 when (small amounts of) pot becomes perfectly legal (kind of), have you stopped and realized that you might be ruining the world?

That's what an official at the United Nations is saying. Raymond Yans, the head of the UN's International Narcotics Control Board, says that Colorado and Washington voters are sending the wrong message to the rest of the country and nations abroad by making marijuana legal.

Yans wants attorney Eric Holder to roll back the laws. 

Meanwhile, people in Washington are getting ready to roll something, but they're not laws. Get it?
