2008 National Drug Control Strategy

The National Drug Control Budget Summary identifies resources and performance indicators for programs within the Executive Branch that are integral to the Presidentís National Drug Control Strategy. The Strategy, which is the Administrationís plan for reducing drug use and availability, is based on three pillars: (1) Stopping Use Before It Starts, (2) Healing Americaís Drug Users, and (3) Disrupting the Market for Illicit Drugs. In Fiscal Year 2009, the President requests $14.1 billion in support of these key elements. This request demonstrates a balanced approach to drug control policy, where activities to reduce the demand for narcotics are augmented by efforts to stem their supply.

The Presidentís FY 2009 request provides for an increase of $459.0 million or 3.4 percent over the FY 2008 enacted level of $13.7 billion. The FY 2008 level does not include the pending supplemental request of $385.1 million for counternarcotics support to Mexico and Central America as part of the Merida Initiative.

There are twelve agencies represented in this volume. The drug control programs of the Departments of Education, Health and Human Services, Interior, Small Business Administration, and Veterans Affairs focus on demand reduction activities. The Departments of Defense, Homeland Security, Justice, State, Transportation and Treasury are principally involved in supply reduction operations. The Office of National Drug Control Policy conducts activities in both areas. Each agency is an important partner in the drug control mission.

The Budget Summary also details agency resources by function. Functions categorize the activities of agencies into common drug control areas. For example, resources that fund efforts to educate citizens on the dangers of drug use are designated as prevention. Similarly, funds supporting drug control programs outside the United States are deemed international. Other functions include treatment, domestic law enforcement, and interdiction.Under this proposal, resources for interdiction and treatment activities realize an increase over the previous year, while domestic law enforcement, prevention, and international programs incur a reduction.
