Annotation: The article discusses the features of the qualification of crimes on the example of the qualification of crimes related to narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances. It is reflected that the correct legal assessment of the committed act presupposes that the law enforcer has deep knowledge in the field of the theory of qualification of crimes, its place and role in criminal law, as well as general, private and individual rules for qualifying a crime. The relevant rules are determined in accordance with the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, explanations on the application of legislation formulated by the Plenum of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation in relevant decisions, as well as the doctrine of criminal law and judicial practice. The problems of qualification of crimes in the context of the dynamic development of public relations protected by criminal law are analyzed. The conclusion is made that it is necessary to take into account all objective and subjective signs when qualifying crimes provided for in Article 228 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, and to introduce the corresponding amendments to the criminal law, which acquire both theoretical and practical significance.
