U.S. Government Supports Removing Marijuana From Strictest Global Drug Schedule

I remember when things like this required amendments to our constitution...

To ban alcohol, and reinstate it, they needed to pass amendments, the 18th and the 21st to be specific.

Why would they treat cannabis, or any other drug, for that matter, any differently.

Our sovereignty has been slowly eroded over the decades. Here's an example...

In 1960-61, the United Nations concocted a treaty amongst themselves and created a schedule. A Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs was created in an attempt to curb international trade of substances that are perceived to alter human behavior.

Among those are opium, coca, amphetamines, psychedelics, etc.

Fast forward 10 years, and President Nixon signed 'into law' the Controlled Substances Act. And it is essentially the same exact setup as the UN Convention.

As we have seen over the past 80+ years of prohibition, the war on drugs has been a complete and utter failure. The amount of time and resources spent on making criminals out of regular people could have been spent on much more progressive programs.

Like setting up education properly, or rebuilding infrastructure, or researching causes of issues instead of 'cures', etc.

It is super frustrating to see things like this article, with the US DEA/FDA/etc looking for changes to be made, but without actual changes being made, ya know?!

The game of taking everything away, and giving a little back and asking for our pats on the back (via political donations and votes) and then having us pay for it all through taxes is appalling.

Anywho, /endrant.

The U.S. government is backing a World Health Organization (WHO) recommendation to remove marijuana from the most restrictive global drug scheduling category—though it’s opposing separate cannabis reform proposals, including one to clarify that CBD is not under international control . At a United Nations (UN) Commission on Narcotic Drugs meeting in Vienna on Thursday, U.S. Ambassador Jackie Wolcott said that the cannabidiol proposal threatens to “introduce legal ambiguities and contradictions that would undermine effective drug control.” While the recommendation would simply offer clarification that CBD containing no more than 0.2 percent THC isn’t a controlled substance under international treaties, the U.S. came down against that and several other cannabis-related proposals. It should also be noted that none of WHO’s recommendations would promote the legalization of cannabis in any country. Adding a footnote to the 1961 Single Convention treaty to make that policy stipulation and adopting other technical recommendations could [...]
