UNITED STATES. - [DRUG ABUSE COUNCIL (publishers)]. An original typescript draft of the ƒ??Final Report of the Drug Abuse Councilƒ??, with manuscript corrections.

[Drug Abuse Council (publishers)].


An original typescript draft of the ‘Final Report of the Drug Abuse Council’, with manuscript corrections.  [?Washington, D.C.: 1980]. Quarto ( x in;  x mm).Typescript on recto only of 33 leaves, with underlinings, corrections and additions in blue. Unbound. Provenance: unidentified individual who worked on the report, but apparently someone connected with the compilation of the report


Original corrected typescript of the final summation of the 300-page report ‘The Facts about “Drug Abuse’” issued by the Drug Abuse Council in 1980. This important and thorough report was, apparently, ahead of its time: it advocated many measures that are now seen as being the correct tracks to follow.


“The Report demonstrates that widespread misuse or abuse of dangerous drugs-not just heroin, marijuana, and cocaine, but alcohol and caffeine, and a great variety of stimulants and tranquilizers, some prescribed, some sold over the counter-is not an evil that can be extirpated by legislation or other means. Yet it is believed that an informed society, aware of the complexities of the issues and evidence, will be better able to cope constructively with the use of drugs. This belief underlies this Final Report.” (Bethuel M. WEBSTER writing in the Foreword to the published version of the report).


OCLC 4769393996: "The latest national survey indicates that two-thirds of adults regularly use alcohol and some 13 million adult and youthful drinkers are said to be problem drinkers. The recommended approach requires a focus on education, public health, treatment, and rehabilitation measures. Other needs are an expanded research effort, a more effective Federal coordination mechanism, closer coordination of law enforcement and treatment agencies, and improvements in drug treatment and prevention programs. Treatment for drug dependence should also be available mainly because people need help, not as a behavior or crime control measure. Research should also focus on the potential of using heroin in the treatment of heroin addiction and the effects of drug laws and drug law enforcement on personal decisions to use or not use illicit drugs. Legislative efforts should also continue to decriminalize at Federal and State levels the possession of small amounts of marijuana for personal use…. The Drug Abuse Council was established in 1972; its final report issued after 7 years emphasizes that the challenge facing the United States regarding drugs is to determine how best to live with the inevitable availability of psychoactive drugs while mitigating the harmful aspects of their misuse, whether the drugs are legal or illegal.”
