The paper relates that President's Bush's National Drug Control Policy began by initiating a budget to allow for prevention and intervention programs in youth school systems. The paper outlines how the President planned to expand the drug treatment system by allowing those that have addiction problems to obtain vouchers and receive the care they need. The paper also explains how the President planned on increasing the budget of several government agencies for this policy. The paper concludes that all in all, the policy is a great one; if everything was to work as stated in the strategy, the country should be drug free or very close to it. The paper points out, however, that the political storm following it might prevent much of the good it is intended to do.

From the Paper:

"The President's National Drug Control Policy begins by initiating a budget to allow for prevention and intervention programs in youth school systems. For drug testing in schools, $25 million has been proposed to initialize drug programs that have only been seen thus far in private schools, and adult institutions. Specifically, schools would have "...competitive grants to support design and implementation of school based drug testing, referral, assessment, and intervention programs." This proposal is the direct result of several different school districts seeking their own funding for such programs in the previous fiscal year."
