Committee of the whole – Resolution L10 continued

After an angry vivid 25 minute discussion, the meeting reconvenes.

Kenya:
The consensus that is emerging is to take the proposal of south africa. It is in the last line, is to use “all drugs” including “cannabis” in particular

Morocco:
We are not happy with the cannabis inclusion. there is a lot of political issues here. I want to express my support to the proposal, but as a compromise i will go ahead with the french consensus proposal.

France:
We suggest, in particular, “cannabis, cocaine and sythetic drugs”.

Algeria:
We are reopening something that has already been agreed. the french proposal doesnt meet our concerns. I favour the proposal to say “all drugs, with in particular cannabis” as this is the issue in our continent,

Switzerland:
Another solution “associated with all drugs, including cannabis” rather than ” in particular”

Argentina:
This is language used in this commission. The themes of the last commission was capacity building, including “cannabis”.

Chair:
the current proposal would read “associated with abuse of all drugs including cannabis”.

Algeria:
In Africa! this was agreed in our African group in vienna. Cannabis is the issue in Africa and this is why we are not happy.

south Africa:
I support Kenya’s proposal, “including cannabis” puts cannabis as a secondary problem.we will not accept including this proposal.

chair:
who objects to the following “abuse of all drugs, in particular cannabis”
Morocco objects.

DISCUSSION TERMINATED!
