Notes 2 (English)

The objective of part two, entitled “Comments on the reported statistics on narcotic drugs”, is to facilitate the use of statistical information on the production, manufacture, consumption, utilization and stocks of the main narcotic drugs under international control and, where applicable, poppy straw, which is presented in the tables of reported statistics. Those data may be used for analytical purposes by Governments, industry, researchers and the general public. The comments focus on developments in the previous year and, where appropriate, take into account the situation during the preceding two decades.
