I’m stuck on a Social Science question and need an explanation.
The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), a component of the Executive Office of the President of the United States, was established in 1988 by the Anti-Drug Abuse Act. ONDCP’s stated goal is to establish policies, priorities, and objectives to eradicate illicit drug use, manufacturing, trafficking, drug-related crime and violence, and drug-related health consequences in the U.S.
Review the most recent National Drug Control Strategy. The 2015 strategy can be viewed here.
- Are there any problems with ONDCP’s goals or objectives? Why?
- How do these goals and objectives match up against the criteria we examined?
- Are there any forces that you think will ultimately hinder the ONDCP’s ability to achieve its stated goals and objectives? Why?
- Describe how you would measure outcomes for this strategy, if you were in charge of planning.
