Narcotic (UNODC)

Narcotics are a type of drug that have the potential to be addictive. Thousands of varieties of drugs, both legal and illegal, are available for use. All drugs affect a user’s body in some way, but their exact effects depend in large part on their particular chemical components. The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) was established in 1997 through a merger of the United Nations Drug Control Programme and the Centre for International Crime Prevention. The office was created to assist the UN in providing a coordinated and comprehensive response to the related issues of drug trafficking and drug abuse, crime prevention and criminal justice, international terrorism, and political corruption.
