Abstract:

Regardless of its name, Drug War or Domestic Drug Problem, the international drug trade is a threat to the moral fiber of this country as well as its National Security. To combat the growing threat, in 1989 President Bush, through the National Drug Control Strategy, introduced a three pronged approach source Country Supply Reduction, Interdiction Operations and Demand Reduction. Each element was designed to attack the drug trade at every phase. From the coca leaf growers in the Huallaga Valley, Peru, to the Cessna 150 pilot smuggling drugs illegally across the Mexican border, to the small time dealer on the corner of a nearby High School.
