ABSTRACT

International Narcotics Control Strategy Report, Volume I: Drug and Chemical Control [March 2019]   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Document: "Volume 1 of the 2019 International Narcotics Control Strategy Report provides an overview of actions taken during the previous year by the governments of nearly 70 countries to reduce illicit drug production, trafficking, and use. This global challenge bears more direct impact on the health and safety of Americans than at any time in our history. According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 70,000 people died in the United States from drug overdoses in 2017, making drug overdoses the leading cause of premature deaths in the country. The vast majority of the illicit drugs responsible for these deaths originate outside the United States, placing drug supply and demand reduction among the most urgent U.S. foreign policy priorities."
