One thought on “Cannabis News Round-Up”

  1. Is anything happening on the world front? As more and more countries legalize marijuana, wholly or partly, the prohibition stance encoded in the UN conventions has become obsolete. So either that part of the system just becomes a dead letter, which is awkward for the parts that everybody wants to keep, as on heroin; or the conventions are overhauled to reflect modern policy. If the USA had a professional arm of government handling international relations – call it in the "Ministry of Foreign Affairs", or nostalgically the "Department of State" – it could be active in this effort. As things are, we depend on Portugal and Uruguay to take the lead. Or maybe there will be a Worthwhile Canadian Initiative.
