Abstract:

Illegal drugs pose a threat of far greater magnitude to the United States than is often perceived. The drug trade has created a crime and health crisis and has put a tremendous drain on our national resources. All economic groups and social classes in the United States are affected by our drug problem. The Department of Defense is an important player in the execution of the national drug control strategy. This paper reviews the Armys role in the detection, monitoring, and countering of the production, trafficking and use of illegal drugs.
