International Distribution of Cannabis Extracts Inevitable: UN to Set the Table

•, Anthony Wile

The biggest news involving the global cannabis trend has to do with something called UNGASS. The United Nations General Assembly Special Session is a meeting of UN member states that will consider and debate the world's drug control system. Previous international symposiums – and the last was held more than 15 years ago – have supported total elimination of drugs. The upcoming UNGASS session will take the opposite perspective, focusing on the legalization of cannabis within an international regulatory framework. From what I can tell, the goal of UNGASS – supported by political and industry leaders – will be to provide a template for the production and use of cannabis globally. Standards set forth by the UN and the World Health Organization will create guidelines for governments around the world to follow.
