EPISODE #93 Cannabis and International Drug Policy with Kenzi Riboulet-Zemouli, Drug Policy Advocate and Researcher
On this week’s show we’re joined by Kenzi Riboulet-Zemouli, drug policy advocate, leading researcher, president of FAAAT, and advisory board member of the European Industrial Hemp Association.
Kenzi gives us a high-level overview of international drug control, including the treaties and conventions which manage it, and the politics involved. We also take a look at the recent historic removal of Cannabis from Schedule IV of the 1961 Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs.

Focused on Action research (matching scholars and citizens) as a catalyser for legal and social changes, Kenzi has been particularly involved in studying alternative pathways for Cannabis policy reform, linking international law with local grassroots initiatives. His work articulates around ethics, human rights aspects, fair trade components, and criteria of sustainability of legally-regulated use, production, and markets of internationally controlled and/or psychoactive plants, fungi, products or substances.
