1951/355(XII)C.Interim agreement to limit the production of opium to medical and scientific needs54/

 

The Economic and Social Council,

Having considered the efforts of the Commission on Narcotic Drugs and its committees during the years 1949 and 1950 to achieve an effective limitation of opium production to that required for medical and scientific needs,

Being fully aware of the problems involved in this new measure for the more effective control of narcotic drugs, and of the gratifying progress the Commission has already made towards solving them,

Urges the Commission to make every possible effort during its sixth session to find a basis acceptable to the governments principally concerned on which an international agreement to limit the production of opium to medical and scientific needs could be formulated.
