Estimated world requirements of narcotic drugs in 1965

In pursuance of the International Convention of 13 July 1931, the Drug Supervisory Body publishes an annual statement of estimated world requirements of narcotic drugs. This statement also includes estimates for the narcotic drugs brought under international control by virtue of the Protocol of 19 November 1948. For the first time, in accordance with the provisions of the United Nations Opium Protocol of 1953, it also includes estimates of opium requirements in 1965, the total being 1,213,541 kg.

The table on the following page shows for each drug the sum of the "total of estimates ", as defined in article 5 of the 1931 Convention, of all the countries and territories in the world, in so far as this sum attained 1 kg. in at least one year from 1959 to 1964; but several narcotic drugs do not fulfil this condition and were, therefore, omitted from the table.
