National Drug Control Strategy, 2011
Office of National Drug Control Policy
In May of 2010, President Obama released the Administration's inaugural "National Drug Control Strategy". Based on the premise that drug use and its consequences pose a threat not just to public safety, but also to public health, the 2010 "Strategy" represented the first comprehensive rebalancing of Federal drug control policy in the nearly 40 years since President Nixon declared illicit drugs "public enemy number one." This 2010 "Strategy" continues to serve as the Administration's blueprint to reduce drug use and its associated consequences in the United States. It describes specific actions that Federal departments and agencies are taking to achieve the Administration's two main drug control goals: curtailing illicit drug consumption in America and reducing the consequences of drug abuse that threaten our public health and safety. It also highlights the development and implementation of evidence-based prevention and intervention practices and policies supported by Federal partnerships with state, local, and tribal jurisdictions and other stakeholders. Appended are: (1) National Drug Control Strategy Goals to be Attained by 2015; and (2) List of Acronyms. (Contains 18 figures and 113 endnotes.) [For "2011 National Drug Control Strategy. Executive Summary," see ED524261.]
