Substances in Schedules I, II, III and IV of the 1971 Convention

Twenty-eight substances are listed in Schedule I of the 1971 Convention. The use of those substances should be prohibited, pursuant to the provisions of article 7 of the Convention, except for scientific and very limited medical purposes by duly authorized persons in medical or scientific establishments that are directly under the control of or specifically approved by their Governments. This restriction results from the fact that all substances in Schedule I are hallucinogens and/or central nervous system stimulants with very limited or no medical use. In line with this restriction, manufacture and stocks of, as well as trade in, those substances have been extremely limited, with the exceptions noted in the following paragraphs.
