Since drug problems continue to produce health problems in our society, it is important to understand world-wide issues favoring the continued existence of drug abuse. National decisions to attack the problem at the production end outside the U.S. have been viewed as being more efficient, more effective, less disruptive and less expensive than approaches to reduce consumption within our own boundaries. This review aims at clarifying the issues involved in national versus international strategies against drugs.
