World Health Organisation recommends rescheduling marijuana



The WHO published a letter on February 1 recommending that cannabis and cannabis resin not be considered controlled substances in international treaties but specifically that it should be removed from Schedule IV of the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs which is currently the highest restriction.

WHO is also moving to make clear that cannabidiol and CBD-focused preparations containing no more than 0.2 percent THC are "not under international control" at all.

The recommendations will now be put to a vote during the next 60-second session of the Commission on Narcotic Drugs, planned for March 2019 in Vienna, Austria.
