Data on drug-related arrests for the sale/manufacture and possession of drugs are shown for each year from 1984 through 1993. Other data and information pertain to drug enforcement operations, the pretrial release of drug defendants, prosecution and sentencing of drug-law violators, drug enforcement in correctional facilities, drug offenders in correctional populations, recidivism of drug-law violators, juvenile drug use, inmate gang involvement, drug use in the general population, and public opinion about drugs.
