"Prepared annually by the National Drug Intelligence Center (NDIC) in partnership with federal, state, and local agencies, this report is designed to provide policymakers and law enforcement personnel at all levels with information for their use in formulating counterdrug policy, establishing law enforcement priorities, and allocating resources. The National Drug Threat Assessment merges foreign and domestic counterdrug intelligence and information on domestic drug trends in a single report. It integrates the most recently available reporting from national-level law enforcement and intelligence agencies with the most current national substance abuse indicator data from public health agencies to accurately and reliably depict the current domestic drug situation. The report also draws on information from nearly 2,900 state and local law enforcement agencies that responded to our National Drug Threat Survey 2002 as well as from more than a thousand personal interviews with law enforcement and public health officials."
