United Nations Takes Stand Against Legalization

The United Nations International Narcotics Control Board (INCB) recently issued its 2017 annual report, and the takeaway with regard to cannabis is clear: The INCB is deeply concerned with the spread of adult-use legalization.

Countries pursuing legalization are acting in ‘clear violation’ of the UN’s 1961 Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, says the International Narcotics Control Board.

“States must take measures to prohibit the unauthorized cultivation of cannabis plants,” stated the report, “to seize and destroy illicit crops, and to prevent the misuse of and trafficking in cannabis.”
