THE 1935 ANTI-SMUGGLING ACT APPLIED TO HOVERING NARCOTICS SMUGGLERS BEYOND THE CONTIGUOUS ZONE: AN ASSESSMENT UNDER INTERNATIONAL LAW

The question is presented as to the propriety; under principles of international law and obligations of international conventions undertaken by the United States, of employing the 1935 Anti-Smuggling Act against narcotics smuggling by ships of foreign flags. The remainder of the paper explores the arguments supporting and disfavoring the employment of this act, assesses the probable reaction of states to its use, and recommends several alternative courses of action to deal with the problem if it is determined that the exercise of authority under the act is not in the best international interests of the United States.
