World Health Organization Recommends Rescheduling of Cannabis

For the first time ever, the World Health Organization is recommending the rescheduling of cannabis under international law in light of the increasing number of its well-established medical benefits. The shift comes following widespread moves toward legalization on the national level in places like Canada, Mexico, and Uruguay, and as the U.S. federal government increasingly signals an intention to tolerate state-level legalization.
