WHO's recommendations on cannabis and cannabis-related substances

The WHO Expert Committee on Drug Dependence (ECDD) recommended, following its 41st meeting in 2018, the rescheduling of cannabis and several cannabis-related substances. The Commission on Narcotic Drugs decided during its 62nd session in March 2019 to postpone the voting on the recommendations to provide Member States with more time.

During the 4th and 5th Intersessional Meeting of the Commission on 24 June 2019 and 23 September, Member States were given the opportunity to address questions to WHO. The International Narcotics Control Board (INCB) and UNODC were also present to provide answers within their respective mandate.
