If the Board finds that the Government has failed to give satisfactory explanations, or has failed to adopt remedial measures that it has been called upon to Congress and international narcotics control book, the Board can call the attention of the Parties, the Council, and the Commission to the matter.

It all started in in Shanghai with the International Opium Commissionthe first international drug control conference. Commenting from Vienna, Mr. The Board believed that there should be drug reduction worldwide and that people who were drug dependent should be treated, not encouraged to use drugs.

The congressman added that a bill to deschedule marijuana called the Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement MORE Act would give lawmakers the tools to protect public health.
