The Economist says there’s a “global revolution” in how countries view cannabis:
“Attitudes towards the drug are softening around the world. But many important countries, most notably Russia and China, remain implacably opposed to reform. The lack of a global consensus prevents the rewriting of the drug treaties…It is only a matter of time before international drug treaties will come to be seen as fundamentally broken.”
Even those up-tight Dutch are reconsidering their cannabis laws. Starting in 2021, coffeeshops in 10 cities will be supplied with cannabis legally, rather than forced to scrounge on the grey market.
