The legality of cannabis for general or recreational use varies from country to country. Possession of cannabis is illegal in most countries as a result of the agreement about Indian hemp, also known as hashish, in the International Opium Convention (1925). However, many countries have decriminalized the possession of small quantities of cannabis.

In the United States, medical marijuana is slowly being accepted by some states, territories, Indian reservations, and by District of Columbia law. Ironically, federally the medical and recreational use of cannabis is still illegal and classified as a Substance 1 drug.

As of 2017, here is a list of the most and least restrictive countries when it comes to medical marijuana and/or recreational cannabis use.
