The legalization of marijuana is in talks from past few years and in fact, in the USA it is even legal in few states but for medical purpose only. And recently World Health Organisation revealed that cannabis does not have a high potential for abuse. WHO also revealed that one of the compounds derived from marijuana has health benefits and governments should not restrict the same.

WHO’s Expert Committee on Drug Dependence said: “Recent evidence from animal and human studies shows that its use could have some therapeutic value for seizures due to epilepsy and related conditions. Current evidence also shows that cannabidiol is not likely to be abused or create dependence as for other cannabinoids (such as Tetra Hydro Cannabinol (THC), for instance).”

The report also declared: “There is increased interest from the Member States in the use of cannabis for medical indications including for palliative care. Responding to that interest and increase in use, WHO has in recent years gathered more robust scientific evidence on the therapeutic use and side effects of cannabis and cannabis components”.

The same report also recommended imposing strong restrictions on drugs like fentanyl which has killed many people in America. The organization will run the fuller review of cannabis next year after assessing all cannabis-related substances. ‘I’m ecstatic that these international health leaders agree that CBD is a substance that should not be scheduled and has therapeutic value for a variety of medical conditions,’, founder and president of HempMeds Mexico, told Daily Mail.
