Under Control: The Legalisation and Regulation of Cannabis
Under Control: The Legalisation and Regulation of Cannabis

In the area of possession, distribution, and cultivation, the legality of cannabis for medical and recreational purposes differs by country. In most countries, cannabis is regulated by the United Nations Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs of 1961, the Convention on Psychotropic Substances of 1971 and the Convention against Illicit Traffic in Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances of 1988. Under international laws, the cultivation, supply and possession of cannabis are allowed only for scientific and medical use. The use of cannabis for recreational use is illegal in most countries. However, several of them have established a decriminalisation policy, meaning that possession of cannabis by a single person is reclassified as a non-criminal, and punishable by the police or other jurisdictions rather than the court. Meanwhile, Asian and Middle Eastern countries have more severe penalties, such as imprisonment for several years.
