Annotation: Recognizing the complex nature of the drug problem and its solutions, the Obama administration has restructured the Federal drug-control budget to represent more accurately the full range of Federal spending, including costs associated with the consequences of drug use.
Abstract: Based on a review of programs related to drug control, the Obama administration will include several new agencies/programs in the National Drug Control Budget. The restructuring of the Federal drug-control budget includes the development of performance measures that monitor each new agency’s contribution to the National Drug Control Strategy (“the Strategy”). The Office of National Drug Control Policy is currently working with agencies to identify current measures that may be appropriate under the Strategy, as well as to develop new measures where necessary. Over the next year, the Obama administration will review a number of programs that work on the drug-control issue but were not included in the budget restructuring because of their budget estimation methodology. Some of these programs include the Defense Department’s TRICARE prevention and treatment efforts; the Department of Health and Human Service’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Project Reunited, the Department of Justice’s Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant program, and the Department of Labor’s Job Corps program. This restructuring will provide an inclusive and accurate description of the Federal contribution to the Strategy’s drug-control mission. A chart compares the old and the new budget structure. A listing is provided of the agencies/programs included in the restructured National Drug Control Budget.
