Abstract

The objective of this study is to analyze the legal form of the drug scheduling decisions made by the United Nations' Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) to place a given narcotic drug or psychotropic substance under international control in accordance with the drug control treaties. In particular, this study will focus upon the historical evolution of the legal form of the decisions of the CND from the inception of the 1961 Single Convention until the latest decision on this matter in 2007. This study will also seek to show how and to explain why the form of the decisions 'evolved' from a very informal and vague way to a strict and concrete legal form. By doing so, this study will interpret these decisions, systematizing them within the general framework of UN law. This exercise will lead, ultimately, to the determination of the meaning of the decisions.
