priorities, and objectives for the Nation's drug control program, the goals of
which are to reduce illicit drug use, manufacturing, and trafficking;
drug-related crime and violence; and drug-related health consequences.

anti-drug efforts and establishes a program, a budget, and guidelines for
cooperation among Federal, State, and local entities.
By law, the Director of ONDCP also evaluates, coordinates, and oversees
both the international and domestic anti-drug efforts of executive
branch agencies and ensures that such efforts sustain and complement
State and local anti-drug activities. The Director advises the
President regarding changes in the organization, management, budgeting,
and personnel of Federal Agencies that could affect the Nation's
anti-drug efforts; and regarding Federal agency compliance with their
obligations under the Strategy.
