This 2006 Policy Brief examines the supply and demand reduction components of the FY2007 federal drug budget. Charting federal drug control policy spending since FY2001, the Brief notes that federal officials shifted funding to supply reduction activities at the expense of support for demand reduction programming. The Brief questions this shift, in particular because the supply reduction funding was primarily slated for border interdiction and international programming, while the main drugs of abuse were identified to primarily come from domestic sources.
