With the spread of drug use and abuse in this country, events relating to drugs have become increasingly prominent in the news. It is anticipated that throughout the seventies this problem will continue to be one of the major social problems in the United States. If an answer to curbing the drug problem is to be found in the next decade, the activities of the Federal government in the past must be examined with a view towards correcting prior mistakes and reducing or eliminating them in the future.
