  1. The 2015 Commission on Narcotic Drugs

    • International Drug Policy Consortium (IDPC)
    14 ဇွန်လ 2015

    The international drug control regime is facing the most profound challenge of its existence. Member states have for some time been experimenting with new responses to the ‘world drug problem’; however, the advent of legally regulated cannabis markets has resulted in a ratcheting up of these challenges to expose the system to new levels of strain. With the 2016 UN General Assembly Special Session (UNGASS) on the world drug problem fast approaching, how will the international community make use of the opportunity it provides for a free and open debate?

    With the 2016 UNGASS on drugs in one year, it is time to recognize the policy landscape is shifting while  tensions within the UN drug control system continue to grow. A slowly increasing number of governments is expressing their frustrations with the current international drug control framework, particularly Mexico and Colombia, countries that are suffering from violence related to drug markets, are calling for reflection and analysis in order to consider new options, some of which include regulatory measures.

    In the media

    China is proposing there should be a worldwide ban on ketamine - the class B drug that can lead to users needing to have their bladders removed. But ketamine is used as an anaesthetic drug in much of Africa, and there are fears further international controls could affect medical usage too.

    Acondicionado el desarrollo alternativo a la erradicación previa debería ser abandonada

    11 မတ်လ 2015

    Acondicionado participación al desarrollo alternativo (AD) a la erradicación previa debería ser abandonada como política, ya que ha demostrado ser contraproducente. Mientras la cantidad de hectáreas erradicadas sigue siendo el principal indicador para el éxito de la política de drogas, el desarrollo sostenible pierde. La voz de las partes interesadas primarias estará representada en los preparativos de la UNGASS mediante la organización de un Foro Mundial de Productores de Plantas prohibidas.

  7. TNI calls for a wide-ranging and open debate that considers all options at UNGASS 2016

    Article

    Just over one year away from the 2016 UNGASS, denying the reality that the drug policy landscape has fundamentally changed and that tensions with the UN drug conventions are occuring, is no longer a credible option. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon urged member states to use the 2016 UNGASS on drugs "to conduct a wide-ranging and open debate that considers all options." TNI calls for a special advisory group that should be tasked with recommending how to better deal with the contentious issues following the 2016 UNGASS, in preparation for the next UN high-level review in 2019.

    Opinion

    The Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) in Vienna will decide next week between two opposite proposals by China and the WHO about international control of ketamine, an essential anaesthetic in human and veterinary medicine. China originally proposed bringing ketamine under the 1971 Convention’s most severe control regime of Schedule I, which would dramatically affect its availability for surgery in poor rural settings and emergency situations. The WHO Expert Committee reviewed all the evidence and advised against any international control of ketamine, arguing it would trigger a public health disaster.

    05 မတ်လ 2015

    La Comisión de Estupefacientes (the Commission on Narcotic Drugs - CND, por sus siglas en Inglés), con sede en Viena, decidirá pronto entre dos propuestas opuestas presentadas por China y por la Organización Mundial de la Salud (OMS) en relación al control internacional de la ketamina, un anestésico esencial en la medicina humana y veterinaria.

    Hoja informativa sobre la propuesta para discutir la clasificación internacional de la ketamina en la 58ª CND

    26 ဖေဖေါ်ဝါရီလ 2015

    La ketamina es un medicamento esencial utilizado para la anestesia. Es el único anestésico disponible para cirugías esenciales en la mayoría de las zonas rurales de los países en desarrollo en donde viven más de dos mil millones de personas. La clasificación de la ketamina dejará a estas poblaciones sin este anestésico alternativo para las intervenciones quirúrgicas esenciales, y profundizará aún más la ya aguda crisis de la cirugía en el mundo.

  13. La decisión de la Comisión de Estupefacientes de clasificar la ketamina socavaría el mandato encomendado a la OMS por los tratados de drogas

    Article

    Al 58º período de sesiones de la CND, que tendrá lugar en marzo de 2015, se le ha pedido que considere una propuesta de China para incluir la ketamina –un medicamento esencial utilizado para la anestesia– en la Lista I del Convenio de 1971 (E/CN.7/2015/7 y E/CN.7/2015/81). La ketamina es el único anestésico disponible para cirugías esenciales en la mayoría de las zonas rurales de los países en desarrollo en donde viven más de dos mil millones de personas. La clasificación de la ketamina en cualquiera de las listas del convenio de 1971 reducirá su disponibilidad y profundizará aún más la crisis ya aguda de la cirugía en el mundo.

  14. CND decision to schedule ketamine would undermine WHO treaty mandate

    Article

    The UN Commission considers to bring ketamine under the control of the 1971 Convention on Psychotropic Substances contrary to WHO recommendations. The 58th Session of the UN Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) in March 2015 has been asked to consider a Chinese proposal to place ketamine – an essential medicine used for anaesthesia – in Schedule I of the 1971 Convention (E/CN.7/2015/7 and E/CN.7/2015/81). Ketamine is the only available anaesthetic for essential surgery in most rural areas of developing countries, home to more than 2 billion of the world’s people. Scheduling ketamine under any of the 1971 treaty schedules will reduce its availability and further deepen the already acute crisis of global surgery.

  15. Fact Sheet on the Proposal to Discuss International Scheduling of Ketamine at the 58th CND

    14 ဖေဖေါ်ဝါရီလ 2015

    Ketamine is an essential medicine used for anaesthesia. It is the only available anaesthetic for essential surgery in most rural areas of developing countries, home to more than 2 billion of the world’s people. Scheduling ketamine will leave these populations with no alternative anaesthesia for essential surgery, and will further deepen the already acute crisis of global surgery.

    The most important drug policy event this quarter was undoubtedly the 57th Session of the UN Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) in Vienna from 13 to 21 March, the first two days of which were dedicated to a high-level review of the past five years. The winds of drug policy change were clearly felt in the statements made by several Latin American countries – Colombia, Guatemala, Ecuador, Mexico and Uruguay – and some European countries – the Czech Republic, Norway and Switzerland, among others.

    rise-decline-cover-flatEl cannabis está en el centro de la tensión en el sistema internacional de control de drogas, por ser la sustancia más consumida en el planeta y por las iniciativas que han surgido, a pesar del prohibicionismo global, para despenalizar su consumo y regular su mercado.

    New report: UN stuck in denial over cannabis regulation

    10 မတ်လ 2014
    Press release

    The current trend towards legal regulation of the cannabis market has become irreversible and requires an urgent dialogue by UN member states on the best models for protecting people’s health and safety, argues a new report. The question facing the international community today is no longer whether there is a need to revise the UN drug control system, but rather when and how to do it. 

  19. UN High-Level Segment on Drugs, March 2014

    28 ဖေဖေါ်ဝါရီလ 2014
    Article

    On March 13-14, 2014, UN member states will gather in Vienna, Austria, for a High Level Segment of the annual UN Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND). The purpose of this meeting is to review the progress made, and the challenges encountered, since the 2009 Political Declaration and Plan of Action on the World Drug Problem. The main focus of the High Level Segment will be the negotiation of a Joint Ministerial Statement, which will set the scene for the 2016 UN General Assembly Special Session on Drugs (UNGASS), as well as recording member states’ views of progress.

  20. UNODC’s shifting position on drug policy: Progress and challenges

    Policy issue

    In March 2014, country delegations will gather at the United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) to review progress and challenges in international drug control since the agreement of a Political Declaration on drugs in 2009. Given that the Political Declaration aims to “eliminate or reduce significantly” the use, supply and demand of controlled drugs by 2019, this meeting represents an important opportunity for honest evaluation and an acknowledgement that these targets are not being achieved. With a United Nations General Assembly Special Session (UNGASS) on drugs just two years away, this is an important time for international drug control policy.
