In January 23rd 2017 our CEO Hanka Gabrielová, an associate FAAAT advocate from the Czech NGO Konopa, delivered a following statement during a hearing of civil society by the UN Commission on Narcotic Drugs (UNGASS), which gathered for an inter-sessional meeting of its 60th session.

Hanka delivered a clear explanation of the threats and unexpected consequences of the drug control system on non-psychoactive cannabis crops (hemp), although these cultures can be a crucial tool to achieve the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development.

Addressing the chapter of the outcome document from the UNGASS 2016 on Evolving reality, trends and existing circumstances, emerging and persistent challenges and threats in the world drugs issue, she delivered a call for the release of the legal and political pressure that impedes the development of hemp-related businesses, including small-scale crops, un particular in developing countries.
