Annotation: This document presents the President's National Drug Control Strategy, which proposes a 10-year conceptual framework to reduce illegal drug use and drug availability by 50 percent by the year 2001.
Abstract: The strategy focuses on prevention, treatment, research, law enforcement, border control, and international cooperation. Its five goals are to (1) educate and enable youth to reject illegal drugs as well as alcohol and tobacco, (2) increase public safety by substantially reducing drug-related crime and violence, (3) reduce drug use's health and social costs, (4) protect borders from drug smuggling, and (5) break foreign and domestic drug sources of supply. Thirty-two objectives support these goals. The strategy is designed to be democratic, outcome-oriented, comprehensive, long-term, wide-ranging, realistic, and science-based.
