Synthetic cannabinoids mimic the effects of cannabis but are more potent and are associated with a range of severe adverse effects, including death. Synthetic cathinones are stimulants with similar effects as other central nervous system stimulants (i.e. cocaine), and pose a significant risk of abuse and dependence. The CND decided to postpone a vote on the recommendations made by WHO for a more rational system of international control of cannabis and cannabis-related substances that would prevent drug-related harms while ensuring that cannabis-derived pharmaceutical preparations are available for medical and scientific use.

This is the first time that the ECDD carries out a full review of cannabis and cannabis-related substances since the International Drug Control Conventions were established in 1961 and 1971. Until now, cannabis has been under the strictest control (schedules 1 and 4) – i.e. at the same level as heroin. At the meeting, the ECDD is expected to make recommendations about the appropriateness of the current international scheduling of cannabis and cannabis-related substances. The aim of these recommendations is to ensure that international control measures can effectively protect people’s health, in particular the most vulnerable, but do not limit access to cannabis derived products with proven therapeutic properties.

Not scheduling a substance means that it is not subject to strict international controls, including for production and supply. (...)
