Global cannabis stakeholders will descend on Vienna in December

Hemp industry events around the world.

Cannabis, activists, scientists, practitioners and other stakeholders will make presentations at the International Cannabis Policy Conference Dec. 7-9 in Vienna. Some 20 speakers representing 11 countries will talk about subjects ranging from sustainable building with industrial hemp to public policy, law, human rights, access to cannabis, licensing, drug policy and food safety during the conference.

The event overlaps with a UN Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) meeting Dec. 5-7, also in Vienna, during which WHO representatives will give the definitive outcomes and recommendations for the re-scheduling of cannabis, and guidelines for cannabidiol (CBD) to the UN’s Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND). CND is the only United Nations body dealing with cannabis policy.

Recommendations coming out of the Policy Conference will supplement WHO re-scheduling guidelines by emphasizing the potential for the development of cannabis and industrial hemp markets as well as products and innovations that meet the 2030 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), a global framework for eco-responsible societies.

The Policy Conference is organized by FAAAT, an international lobbying organization.
