To the Senate of the United States:

With a view to receiving the advice and consent of the Senate to accession to the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, 1961, open for signature at New York March 30, 1961 to August 1, 1961, I transmit herewith a copy of the Convention along with the Final Act of the United Nations Conference at which the Convention was adopted.

For nearly sixty years the United States has taken a leading part in international cooperation for the control of narcotic drugs. We should continue this cooperation to the fullest possible extent in combating the scourge of drug abuse.

After a survey by a special task force on the contribution of the Convention to the control of illegal international drug traffic, I have concluded that the national and international interest in drug control will be significantly advanced by United States accession.

I recommend that the Senate give the Convention early and favorable consideration.

LYNDON B. JOHNSON
The White House
March 8, 1967


Note: The convention was favorably considered by the Senate on May 8, 1967, and after ratification entered into force on June 24, 1967. It was proclaimed by the President on July 12, 1967.

The text of the convention is printed in the Treaties and Other International Acts Series (TIAS 6298).

The White House also released a report to the President by Acting Secretary of State Nicholas deB. Katzenbach on the history of the convention and prior related agreements. The report is printed in the Weekly Compilation of Presidential Documents (vol. 3, p. 402).
