The Commission on Narcotic Drugs

The Commission on Narcotic Drugs was established by Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) resolution 9(I) in 1946, to assist the ECOSOC in supervising the application of the international drug control treaties. In 1991, the General Assembly (GA) expanded the mandate of the CND to enable it to function as the governing body of the UNODC. The Commission has important functions under the drug control treaties in force today; most notably, it can amend the Schedules of controlled substances under the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs and the Convention on Psychotropic Substances. Delegates in this committee will have to discuss the ever growing problems of the drug trade and potential solutions, keeping in mind how varied drug laws and scheduling is across the world.
