This book critically analyzes claims made by the Office of National
Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), the White House agency of
accountability in the nation's drug war. Specifically, the book
examines six editions of the annual National Drug Control Strategy
between 2000 and 2005 to determine if ONDCP accurately and honestly
presents information or intentionally distorts evidence to justify
continuing the war on drugs. Matthew B. Robinson and Renee G.
Scherlen uncover the many ways in which ONDCP manipulates
statistics and visually presents that information to the public.
Their analysis demonstrates a drug war that consistently fails to
reduce drug use, drug fatalities or illnesses associated with drug
use; fails to provide treatment for drug dependent users; and
drives up the prices of drugs. They conclude with policy
recommendations for reforming ONDCP's use of statistics, as well as
how the nation fights the war on drugs.
