“A concept that is essential and is both very ancient and very modern, it’s the concept of the evolution of civilization towards shared responsibility. In regards to drugs, it means simply that states, under the framework of the Convention, commit themselves to promote drug use under medical control, and to limit to the extent possible the use of recreational, and illegal drugs.”
