National Drug Control Strategy: FY 2007 Budget Summary   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Document: "The President's Fiscal Year (FY) 2007 Budget provides resources for reducing illegal drug use in the United States. Reducing drug use requires an investment in programs that discourage the use of drugs that help those in need of treatment and law enforcement programs that target those trying to supply illicit drugs to the marketplace. The proposed funding levels support the three key priorities of the National Drug Control Strategy (Strategy). Priority I--Stopping Use Before it Starts: Education and Community Action--receives support for effective programs to help communities obtain a drug-free environment and encourage young people to reject drug use. Priority II--Intervening and Healing America's Drug Users--continues to focus on ensuring that treatment is available for those who need it. This budget expands access and choice to a wider array of innovative treatment options including those services offered by faith-based organizations. The Strategy's Priority III--Disrupting the Market--targets individuals and organizations profiting from trafficking in illegal drugs. The budget provides resources to strengthen and focus market disruption efforts while at the same time dedicating new resources for emerging threats."
