The war on drugs has been fought for decades, yet half of all Americans either have a drug problem or know someone who does. This illustrated issue guide offers a concise, clear overview of the problem and the options for dealing with this pervasive problem.
Written by award-winning journalist Michael deCourcey Hinds, this issue guide is part of a series of National Issues Forums guides which cover such topics as suburban sprawl, public school reform, the environment, youth violence, the economy and jobs. They are stuctured in a way to give concerned citizens an unbiased, easily understandable but in-depth,introduction to an issue and explain the different and sometimes competing solutions that exist. The guides are nonpartisan and do not advocate a particular solution to any public issue, and are an excellent educational tool.

Public Agenda is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization based in New York City that is well respected for its influential public opinion polls and its balanced educational materials. Founded in 1975 by social scientist and author Daniel Yankelovich and former Secretary of State Cyrus Vance, Public Agenda's materials have won praise for their credibility and fairness from elected officials from both political parties and experts and decision-makers across the political spectrum.
Public Agenda has addressed a wide range of issues through its research and citizen education work including school and health care reform, national security, AIDS, crime, economic competitiveness and the environment. By helping Americans understand the challenges the country faces, Public Agenda enhances our ability to find workable solutions that will assure a more prosperous and secure future for every citizen.
The two-fold mission of Public Agenda is, for one, to help leaders better understand the public's point of view on major policy issues. Through in-depth analyses and opinion studies, Public Agenda gives public officials and leaders a unique opportunity to discover what Americans are really thinking. This critical research enables government, industry and organizations to address constituent concerns thoughtfully and effectively.
Public Agenda's mission is also to help citizens better understand critical policy issues so they can make their own more informed and thoughtful decisions. Drawing on its research, Public Agenda prepares a broad array of educational materials that help explain policy issues to the public in a balanced and easy-to-understand way. Citizens can use this information to weigh various choices and make educated decisions.
