The United States says it does not support a World Health Organization proposal to remove CBD extracts with less than 0.2% THC from international drug control. Reports MJ Biz
U.S. Ambassador Jackie Wolcott, speaking Thursday to a United Nations gathering in Vienna, said that a proposal to exclude low-THC cannabis products that are “predominantly” CBD from the jurisdiction of a 50-year-old global drug treaty could “introduce legal ambiguities and contradictions that would undermine effective drug control.”
Wolcott said the U.S. supports removing cannabis from Schedule 4 of the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs (1961) – but not adding a footnote to exempt mostly CBD preparations.
