The World Health Organization Will Spend This Week Working On Scheduling Of Drugs.
Something to be hopeful about? The WHO spend the week of 11/6/17 to 11/10/17 working on Scheduling of Drugs. Raul Elizalde will be fighting to get CBD out of the Schedule I category.
The United States Government had incorrectly and arbitrarily placed cannabis into Schedule 1 (forbidden category) of the controlled substances under the Controlled Substances Act of 1970 based on old myths and political ideology;
In 1972 the “Shafer Commission” (The National Commission on Marihuana and Drug Abuse) found that marihuana (cannabis) did not meet the criteria for Schedule I placement;
A harsh schedule also does not mean a drug is totally illegal.
Criminal laws, while guided by the scheduling system, often take other factors into account. For Cannabis, they do — leaving it as one of the less-punished illicit drugs at the federal level, even though it’s schedule 1. And opioid painkillers, as one example, are schedule 2 but legal for medical purposes.
