International Drug Control Policy: Background and U.S. Responses


Illegal drugs refer to narcotic, psychotropic, and related substances whose production, sale, and use are restricted by domestic law and international drug control agreements. Common illegal drugs trafficked internationally include cocaine, heroin, as well as synthetic drugs, such as methamphetamine and ecstasy. Cannabis, or marijuana, is also internationally proscribed. The illegal trade in these drugs represents a lucrative and what at times seems to be an intractable transnational criminal enterprise. According to the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), the United States is particularly affected by this criminal activity. Describing the illicit narcotics trade as a "challenging, dynamic threat to the United States," DOJ concluded in 2011 that the drug threat to the United States "will not abate in the near term and may increase."
