A National Drug Policy

In formulating a national drug policy, consideration should be given to a host of factors. The priorities that may have to be ascribed to certain factors over others should be determined in the light of the availability of resources and the ability to enforce such a policy. However, it is believed that the two recent Conventions, the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, 1961, and the Convention on Psychotropic Substances, 1971 provide a basic guideline as to how a national drug policy may have to be formed.
