Since 1961 The United Nations looks upon cannabis as a Schedule I drug with “no accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse.” The plant is scheduled as a dangerous drug, like heroin, in the Single Convention on Narcotic and Drugs.
But things are about to change!
Earlier this year, the Expert Committee on Drug Dependence, part of the World Health Organization, released a pre-review report of cannabis that included several positive, evidentiary findings. And, cannabis has not been on the agenda of the World Health Organization since 1954.
Now in 2018, we are present at the Commission on Narcotic Drugs 61st reconvened session in Vienna to watch the recommendations, how to re-schedule cannabis, presented by the WHO!
Watch this first part of a Vienna Special.
We are due to make the second soon, The International Cannabis Policy Conference with even the best speakers ever we have not shown before. Stay tuned!
