Former UK Chief Drug Advisor wants medical cannabis for the masses

Submitted by Marijuana News Cannabis and Hemp have been under prohibition across most of the world since the 1930s. But with legalization afoot in the US and some countries in Europe, some experts want it to be “embraced like Penicillin.” As cannabis legalization sweeps across North America – with Canada being the latest country to permit cannabis for medical and recreational use – some countries in Europe apparently didn’t get the memo. The UK government, for example, has always been very conservative when it comes to the cannabis legalization issue, no matter who’s in power. Other countries in Europe...

European Parliament approves bill that would incentivize countries to allow medical marijuana

Submitted by Marijuana News Recently the World Health Organization recommended that countries around the world reschedule marijuana and remove it from international drug treaties. And now the European Parliament is doing the same, Joseph Misulonas. The European Parliament passed a new resolution calling on member states to increase access to medical marijuana and increasing research efforts into cannabis. The resolution is non-binding, meaning it doesn’t actually change any laws and isn’t a requirement for countries in the European Union to follow. But it is another high-profile international body calling on marijuana reform, which will hopefully lead to countries actually...
