From the DEA
We are pleased to introduce the 2005 edition of Drugs of Abuse. This DEA magazine delivers clear, scientific information about drugs in a factual, straightforward way, combined with scores of precise photographs shot to scale. We believe that Drugs of Abuse fulfills an important educational need in our society.
Around the world and across the nation, the dedicated men and women of the DEA are working hard to investigate and arrest the traffickers of the dangerous drugs depicted in this magazine. They help keep our schools and neighborhoods safe and secure. But just as important, they are working hard to educate America's youth, their parents, and their teachers about the very real dangers of illegal drugs. Drugs of Abuse magazine is an important step in that direction. For additional information about drugs, we invite you to explore our web site at: www.dea.gov, where you will find a wealth of research and drug-related news.
Finally, we would like to express our appreciation to the United States National Guard (USNG) and the National Drug Intelligence Center (NDIC) for joining us as partners in the publication of this magazine.
