From the Paper:

The president's national drug control strategy comprises three specific approaches to combat the problem of drug abuse comprehensively. The strategy is designed to stop drug use before it starts, to provide drug treatment resources where they are needed, and to attack the economic basis of the drug trade, both domestically and internationally. The policy was motivated by the documented prevalence of drug abuse in society, particularly in economically impoverished areas and also by the alarming results of studies detailing the early introduction of school-aged children to drug use."
