Controlled Substance is a Youtube channel about drugs from a scientific perspective and without any taboos. We assume intelligence and responsibility from our viewers, since all are actors in one of the biggest conflicts of our time: the international War on Drugs.

After World War 1, the League of Nations was created, which first made cannabis a controlled substance through the Geneva Convention in 1925. It had been mostly the US pushing for the scheduling of cannabis. Remember: this was right after it had just made alcohol illegal in its own country. Later, these treaties were implemented in a UN Framework and expanded in the 60s.

#NOTE 2: It seems like teen usage actually is lower since legalization in Colorado.

#NOTE 4: My previous video was really bad, but became the most watched video on this channel.

I fully agree with all (most 🙂 ) complaints about that vid.
LOVE THE SUPPORT, you girls and guys are great!

Controlled Substance is hosted from the Netherlands by science journalist Tice Roes.
