|1952/436(XIV)F.||Scientific research on narcotics|
The Economic and Social Council,
Noting the progress made in research work into the origin of opium,
Desiring to extend the research to cover all types of opium produced in the world,
1. Requests governments to send to the United Nations Research Laboratory for analysis samples of all opium seized in illicit traffic; and
2. Instructs the Secretary-General to study and submit to the Council, at its fifteenth session, a detailed estimate of the cost of preparing and equipping a laboratory, preferably in the Secretariat building of the United Nations, large enough to handle the increased research work.
