1971 CE
The United Nations Fund for drug abuse control is created

The fund was meant to finance research on drug abuse as well strengthen national control and enforcement in regards to drugs. Drug abuse was framed as a 'demand', which was linked to a 'supply', with the link between the two being illicit drug traffic. The United States announced an initial contribution of $2 million dollars to the fund.
