Annotation: This document summarizes the 1997 National Drug Control Strategy and presents data on drug abuse, drug-related crime, drug law enforcement, and other topics.
Abstract: The strategy is designed to provide guidance for the long term for both limiting and availability of illegal drugs and reducing the demand for them. It proposes a 10-year strategic commitment supported by 5-year budgets. The first priority is to decrease the use of illegal drugs, alcohol, and tobacco by youth. It also seeks more effective, efficient, and accessible drug treatment programs; supports the expansion of drug-free workplaces; and opposes the legalization of marijuana and other dangerous drugs. It also seeks to increase public safety by breaking the cycle of drugs and violence and increases resources for border control. Other efforts are designed to eliminate coca cultivation destined for illicit consumption, reinforce interdiction efforts in the source country and transit zones, and support the drug control efforts of committed democracies and multilateral objectives.
