SEMINAR ON INFORMING AMERICA’S POLICY ON ILLEGAL DRUGS:

WHAT WE DON’T KNOW KEEPS HURTING US -- A REPORT  

 

On March 29, 2001, the Committee on Law and Justice held a seminar on the report, Informing America's Policy on Illegal Drugs.  The report focused the need for better data and research on drug policy, especially on drug enforcement and recommends ways to close these gaps in our understanding-by obtaining the necessary data on drug prices and consumption (quantity in addition to frequency); upgrading federal management of drug statistics; and improving our evaluation of prevention, interdiction, enforcement, and treatment efforts.
