USA Opposes CBD Exemption In International Drug Treaty

The United States says it does not support a World Health Organization proposal to remove CBD extracts with less than 0.2% THC from international drug control.

U.S. State Department attorney Patt Prugh, speaking Thursday to a United Nations gathering in Vienna, said that a proposal to exclude low-THC cannabis products that are “predominantly” CBD from the jurisdiction of a 50-year-old global drug treaty could “introduce legal ambiguities and contradictions that would undermine effective drug control.”
