Federal Strategy for Drug Abuse and Drug Traffic Prevention 1974.
Strategy Council on Drug Abuse, Washington, DC.
The Drug Abuse Office and Treatment Act of 1972 directed the development and promulgation of a comprehensive, coordinated long-term Federal strategy for all drug abuse prevention and drug traffic control functions conducted, sponsored, or supported by the Federal Government. This second annual report of the Strategy Council builds on the groundwork laid in the Strategy 1973. The 1974 goals and objectives recognize that a society's response to drug abuse is a product of its values, attitudes, and beliefs. In a similar sense, the objectives of the Strategy 1974 rest on present understanding of the causes and consequences of drug abuse and on society's capacity to respond meaningfully to the complex factors as it encounters them. To the extent that disagreement with these judgments leads to constructive discussion, understanding of the many complex issues will be sharpened. This strategy, therefore, is to be dynamic--continually reexamined and reviewed so that programs and policies reflect the best knowledge at hand. Strategy 1974 sets forth an action plan which describes the way in which the Federal Government is responding to the drug abuse problem through a coordinated program of drug abuse prevention, law enforcement, and international cooperation.
