The Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) is composed of 53 Member States, founded by the Economic and Social Council in 1946. The purpose of this commission is to review, supervise and modify international narcotic substances control policies during annual regular meeting sessions between various regional groups, and it completes its function through resolutions, which are intended to enhance international or regional cooperation, coordinate regulations and identify potential changes that could improve the control of psychotropic stimulants. The CND is divided in two segments, a normative and operational fragment, which consider administrative, budgetary and active matters; it also functions as the governing body of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime. The commission can add or remove drugs from international control, with the assistance of non-governmental, governmental and intergovernmental organizations, under the Psychotropic Drugs Convention (1971), with the basis of advice from the World Health Organization and the International Narcotics Control Board.
