What You Don’t Know About Marijuana Delivery

Marijuana, a popular medicinal plant for the elderly, has been used as a source of medicine for centuries. It was considered a viable cure for many illnesses, even as technology became part of how we live. The Canadian government, however, outlawed marijuana in 1923. While marijuana cigarettes were confiscated in 1932, it took 14 years for the first conviction for possession of marijuana to be laid against a person, nine years after the law passed.

In 1961, an international treaty known as the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs was signed by the United Nations, which established the four Controlled Substances Schedules. Marijuana has legally become an internationally regulated (most restrictive) substance, listed as Schedule IV.

A provision for the member nations to set up government agencies to monitor cultivation is also included in the treaty. In addition, the provisions include criminalization of all scheduled drug processes, including production, manufacture, preparation, possession, selling, distribution, export, etc. Some have sought to get marijuana excluded from the schedule IV classification or from the schedules all together because of its medicinal uses. However since cannabis was expressly stated in the 1961 Convention, a majority vote of the members of the Commissions would be required for change.

The wording of the Convention seems clear; nations that sign the treaty must handle marijuana with the necessary penalty as a Schedule IV substance. However the provisions for the medical and scientific use of controlled substances are contained in some sections of the treaty. The Cannabis Control Policy: A Discussion Paper was published in 1998.The duty to restrict the possession of cannabis products solely for legally permitted medicinal and scientific purposes applies to regulatory and distribution controls and while it can entail the confiscation without authorisation of the possession of cannabis, it does not oblige Canada to criminally penalise that possession.

Scientific studies on the medical use of marijuana has persisted. The Institute of Medicine started a study in August 1997 to determine the clinical evidence for marijuana and cannabinoids. Released in 1999, it states in the report:”The accumulated data indicate a potential therapeutic value for cannabinoid drugs, particularly for symptoms such as pain relief, control of nausea and vomiting, and appetite stimulation. The therapeutic effects of cannabinoids are best established for THC, which is generally one of the two most abundant of the cannabinoids in marijuana.”
