Plenary Day 2: Stament for the President of the INCB Hamid Ghodse

Mr Ghodse presents of the INCB report 2011 putting emphasis on the first chapter focusing on the relationship between communities lacking in social cohesion and increased drug use. Mr Ghodse also reiterates statements made by many other delegations, highlighting the threat of new substances that can be purchased on the Internet and delivered by mail. He then states that on behalf of the INCB he must note, referring to Bolivia, that the integrity of the conventions would be undermined if the leaving and re-accession of the convention is seen as a legitimate solution to articles in the convention that member states do not agree with.

Mr Ghodse finally states that in terms of drug control he “wants to make this century even more successful than the last one”.
