Drug control budget

The FY 2004 National Drug Control Budget reflects a significant restructuring from prior years. The drug budget now contains only those expenditures aimed at reducing drug use, rather than those associated with the consequences of drug use. The requested drug control funding amount for FY 2011 is approximately $15.5 billion. Budget figures presented here reflect this restructuring.
