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).

Connecticut Hospice Hopes to Set New Standard for End of Life Patients with Medical Marijuana
The nation’s first hospice center plans to study how medical marijuana can help its dying patients.
Officials at the the Connecticut Hospice in Branford, established in 1974, said on Monday that they are hoping to improve pain management while reducing opioid use in palliative care.

After State Legalizes Recreational Pot, Governor Wants to End Medical Marijuana
Governor Paul LePage failed to convince Maine voters that legalizing recreational marijuana would be a “deadly” disaster for the state. So now, the avowed Donald Trump supporter is trying to do away with medical marijuana.
Maine voters on Election Day appeared to narrowly approve Question 1, which legalizes two and a half ounces of cannabis and six mature plants for adults 21 and over. But with the margin of victory less than one percent of the vote, legalization opponents called for a recount.
Results from the recount, already delayed thanks to a lack of volunteers from the opposing side to help count, will now have to wait until 2017, as state election officials paused the process Friday for a two-week winter holiday break.
