October 2022 World Cannabis Possession for Receational Use    October 2022 World Medical Cannabis Legislation

There are many factors that affect the legality of cannabis, marijuana, hemp, THC and CBD for medical and recreational purposes. These include its distribution and cultivation and, in some cases, how it can and can’t be consumed. Three United Nations treaties regulate the policies of most countries. They are the 1961 Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs; 1971 Convention on Psychotropic Substances; and 1988 Convention Against Illicit Traffic in Narcotic Drugs. Under the Single Convention treaty cannabis is classified as Schedule I. This means signatories can allow medical marijuana use but also that it is considered addictive and prone to abuse.

In most countries, cannabis is not allowed for recreational use. Many have decriminalized simple possession to make it a noncriminal offense. This policy is often similar to minor traffic violations. Some countries in Asia and the Middle East have more severe penalties. Possession of small amounts can result in imprisonment for many years. Canada, Georgia (Malta), South Africa, South Africa and Thailand have legalized recreational marijuana use. There are also 19 states, 2 territories and the District of Columbia within the United States, and the Australian Capital Territory. Three countries, Canada, Thailand, Uruguay, and all subnational U.S. jurisdictions have legalized recreational cannabis.

Argentina, Brazil and Chile have legalized medical marijuana. Some countries have stricter laws that restrict the use or some cannabis-derived drugs, like Epidiolex, Marinol and Sativex. Although in America legalisation of medical marijuana has been granted in 37 states, 4 territories and the District of Columbia, it is still illegal at the federal level.
