The Obama Administration's approach to drug policy is borne out of the recognition that drug use is a major public health threat, and that substance use disorders are a preventable and treatable disease. Young people in particular deserve every opportunity to live up to their full potential, and exposure to effective drug prevention programs improves their chances. Research shows preventing drug use before it begins is the most cost-effective, common-sense approach to promoting safe and healthy communities.
