Drugs of abuse

The abuse of drugs remained a serious threat to all countries and segments of society in 1988. Health hazards were heightened by a trend towards the simultaneous consumption of two or more drugs and by the emergence of more potent narcotic substances. In its annual report, the International Narcotics Control Board (INCB) stated that the illicit production and trafficking of drugs by internationally linked criminal organizations continued to undermine the integrity of national economies and imperil the security of some countries. During the year, heavy emphasis was placed on bringing to justice the master-minds of criminal syndicates involved in the illicit production, manufacture and distribution of drugs.
