There’s hope on the horizon…

The UN now says medical weed is a less dangerous drug.

Even though it’s a long way from legalization, a United Nations commission has voted to reclassify cannabis.

That means acknowledging the plant’s medical value and paving the way for further therapeutic use of the drug internationally.

The 27-25 vote by the Vienna-based UN Commission for Narcotic Drugs was based on 2019 recommendations by the World Health Organization (WHO), which provides technical expertise on drugs to the UN.

The decision removes cannabis and cannabis resin from Schedule IV of the 1961 Single Convention on Narcotics Drugs, where it was listed alongside drugs such as heroin as having little to no medical or therapeutic value.
