Medical Marijuana Reclassified Under International Law?
Medical marijuana could receive a much-needed reclassification under international law before 2018.
The World Health Organization’s Expert Committee on Drug Dependence (ECDD), which has played in integral role throughout the years in how marijuana is revered in the eyes of the United Nations, has decided to give some consideration to whether “medical marijuana” should be downgraded from its current classification under the UN Single Convention.
The organization revealed plans last month to hold a special session within the next year and a half to debate this issue, according to a report from Americans for Safe Access (ASA).

Higher Education And Marijuana Policy: Is Cannabis Allowed On Campus?
The decision by voters in California, Maine, Massachusetts and Nevada to legalize marijuana for adults over 21 years old has cultivated a campus cannabis conundrum at higher learning institutions across the US. Overshadowing the legalization in these states and the new medical cannabis laws passed in Arkansas, Florida, Montana and North Dakota; has been whether appointments to the president elect’s cabinet will trump any of these gains in cannabis policy. If you go to a college in one of the 28 states or D.C. that has legalized cannabis for adult use or has medical cannabis laws, there are limitations all students should know about.
The college campus setting and campus sanctioned areas present the college student a conflict in a citizen’s right to cannabis under state laws that are being neutralized by campus rules. In order to maintain funding, college administrators must enforce a campus cannaban which includes dorm rooms and off-site fraternities, sororities and other school-sponsored activities. Unfortunately, though legal at a state level, cannabis is still illegal on college campuses because of the federal funding they receive. Federally-funded institutions of higher education must comply with regulations such as the Drug Free Schools, Communities Act and the Drug Free Workplace Act.
