Lastly, I note that CBD is not considered to be a narcotic drug according to the international conventions to which the Member States are parties, namely the United Nations Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, concluded in New York on 30 March 1961, amended by the 1972 Protocol amending the Single Convention of 1961 (‘the Single Convention’), ( 38 ) and the United Nations Convention on Psychotropic Substances concluded in Vienna on 21 February 1971 (‘the Convention on Psychotropic Substances’).
