FDA wants to hear from the experts on Pot, THC and CBD
The impact on the global cannabis community could be huge. Most of the 182 million cannabis users cited in the United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime 2017 World Drug Report live under the risk of being criminalized for their use. The WHO and UN pushing back on that trend could be a massive development.
The Food and Drug Administration has officially put out a call for public comments on cannabis, THC and CBD to bring to the World Health Organization (WHO) later this year. This call for public comment is just a single step in a years-long process of the WHO considering a change in its cannabis policy. The reason the WHO put out the call for input is because the 40th Expert Committee on Drug Dependence will convene for a special session later this year. The committee will examine the current status of cannabis on its potential to cause dependence, abuse and harm to health, as well as its therapeutic applications. The WHO will then make recommendations to UN Secretary-General António Guterres on whether there is a need for international control of these substances.
