This chapter discusses Gerald Ford's role in quenching the drug use issue that still existed within the United States. It reviews the 1976 federal strategy report, which summarized the areas where development had been made. This report is noted for insisting that the White Paper's argument on drug policy makers and their need to recognize the various social effects of drugs, to establish priorities, and to limit the federal funds is valid. The report is also shown to contain important steps that were used to manage the increasing cocaine traffic from Colombia and address criminal justice issues. This chapter also talks about the drug priority concept.
