Dans son rapport annuel, publié jeudi, l' OICS relève des preuves de plus en plus nombreuses d'un lien entre l'exposition aux médias sociaux et la consommation de drogues, qui touche de manière disproportionnée les jeunes, principaux utilisateurs des plateformes de médias sociaux, et un groupe d'âge où les taux de consommation de drogues illicites sont élevés. « On assiste sur les réseaux sociaux à une valorisation de l'usage des drogues et en particulier du cannabis, une facilitation de l'acquisition en vue de l'usage toxicomaniaque, non médicale. (...) Pour contrer les effets négatifs et le coût humain de ce commerce, l'OICS recommande aux gouvernements de s'attaquer à toutes les étapes du trafic de drogue - de la production et de la culture à la vente et à la dissimulation des profits illégaux - et de partager les renseignements sur le crime organisé au niveau international. © UNICEF/John Vink Au Cambodge, le cannabis est souvent additionné d'héroïne et fumé par les toxicomanes.

We identify with those who were looking to free themselves from the grip of opiates however a side effect of the eventual elimination of this imperial trade in mind altering substances would cause cannabis to be no longer seen as a widely accepted ancient traditional herbal remedy and instead a dangerous narcotic.

In the mid 1800’s Dr O’shaughnessy brought cannabis to the attention of the medical profession inside of the United States and by 1900 cannabis had undergone serious inquiry by some of USA’s most prestigious institutions and cannabis was enshrined in the US pharmacopeia and dispensatory.
