Final Report: The President's Commission on Model State Drug Laws

Alcohol and other drug problems are among the most significant social issues this nation faces in
the 1990s and beyond. These problems have no political, socioeconomic, or human boundaries.
They are public health as well as law enforcement problems, community problems as well as individual
problems. Alcohol and other drug problems affect the nursery and the classroom, the home
and the business, the health care system and the criminal justice system, the town council and the
federal government.
