What’s the Future of Drug Policy? An Interview with America’s ‘Drug Czar’

An e-mail interview by Harold Pollack of the Washington Post with Gil Kerlikowske who is director of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (in more common parlance, America’s “Drug Czar.”) He was recently nominated to be commissioner of Customs and Border Protection.

Topics include substance abuse policy, healthcare reform, sentencing reform, international matters, marijuana, and culture war in drug policy.


To coincide with Recovery Month in September, The Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC) issued a paper on Recovery and the National Drug Control Strategy available at: http://www.attcnetwork.org/find/news/attcnews/epubs/addmsg/sept2013article.asp

  1. Hi there! This post couldn’t be written much better!
    Looking through this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He continually kept preaching about this. I most certainly will send this post
    to him. Fairly certain he’ll have a good read. Thank you for sharing!

  2. Right here is the perfect web site for anybody who wishes to understand this topic.
    You understand so much its almost tough to argue with you (not that I personally would want to…HaHa).
    You certainly put a new spin on a subject that’s been discussed for many years.

    Wonderful stuff, just wonderful!
