- Why are we on Tipeee?
Our NGO is non-profit and non-governmental. We do not receive public funding, and not always receive the financial support that could be expected from the raisin industry and entrepreneurs world. This page is to help us ensure continuity and stability in the financial resources that allow our team to research, attend meetings and UN fora, cover office costs, wages, and properly develop the lobby and advocacy work needed to untangle a Century of prohibition.
- Our actions on Cannabis descheduling
Long before the creation of our think-tank 2 years ago, the advocates and team members of FAAAT were working to help unlock the processes that would allow for a change in scheduling status of cannabis within the international treaties classification system.
In 2016, the WHO finally decided to launch the so-called review process.
That started in November 2017 with the first part of the review of CBD.
The second part of the review will happen in June 2018, while the first part of THC and Cannabis reviews start. Now, our work is focused around:
• Coordination of civil society and academics strategy and incidence,
• Constant discussion, advise and guidance to the WHO officers,
• Dissemination and basic training for stakeholders.
Everything (that can be made public) is uploaded to this beautiful web portal: faaat.net/towards-descheduling.

Besides the important scheduling focus, we develop advocacy work on the broader international drug policy reform field, some examples are below:
