The 2013 International Narcotics Control Strategy Report (INCSR) is a substantive, mandatory two-volume report prepared by INL and submitted to Congress each year.  Volume I of the INCSR is separate from the annual “Major Drug Producing/Trafficking List” process, by which the President must determine by September 15 of each year which countries meet the statutory requirements as top drug-producing and/or drug-transit states.  The INCSR helps inform the U.S. Government’s interagency annual deliberations on the “Major Drug Producing/Trafficking List”, and all countries determined to be in this category are included in the INCSR volume on Drug and Chemical Control.  All recipients of U.S. counternarcotics assistance under the Foreign Assistance Act during the previous two fiscal years are also included in the report, as well as a small number of other countries that play significant roles in the global drug trade.  The issue of marijuana legalization stemming from the referenda in Colorado and Washington was not included in the policy over view of the 2013 INCSR because the United States Department of State has no jurisdiction under the statute to report on domestic matters.

 

Volume II of the 2013 INCSR, Money Laundering and Financial Crime, reports on the countries/jurisdictions determined to be of primary concern, described as major money laundering countries.  Such countries engage in currency transactions involving significant amounts of proceeds from international narcotics trafficking; however, the complex nature of money laundering transactions makes it difficult to identify specific narcotics trafficking proceeds from the proceeds from other serious crime.  The list of countries/jurisdictions of primary concern recognizes this relationship by including all countries and jurisdictions whose financial institutions engage in transactions involving significant amounts of proceeds from all serious crimes or are particularly vulnerable to such activity because of weak or nonexistent laws, weak or nonexistent supervisory/enforcement functions, or weak political will.
