Linking Cannabis to Sustainable Development

Cannabis policies are getting transformed all around the world. Businesses are springing up and, from Thailand to Canada and from Lesotho to France, societies are getting prepared to change their approach and relation with this mighty plant and its multiple applications.

However, international regulations on cannabis are still incoherent and outdated, as the United Nations international Treaties still consider Cannabis as a harmful drug without medical value.

At its Special Session on the world drug phenomenon (UNGASS 2016), the UN General Assembly requested all interested parties (civil society, academia, the private sector, and affected populations), to scale-up their involvement in the design and update of International drug policies.

A year later the UN Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) reiterated this demand, explicitly calling for the provision of inputs to the key High-Level Segment of the 62nd CND in March 2019.

The International Cannabis Policy Conference directly answers these requests, through the gathering of affected and interested parties to provide substantive contributions on future policies and regulations on Cannabis, in line with the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
