Issue Position: Drugs

"Drug abuse is one of our nation's most pervasive problems. It ravages families and infects communities with increased crime, and it denies individuals the chance to tap their potential and lead healthy, productive lives. The fact is we have the tools to prevent addiction before it even starts and to successfully treat those with substance abuse disorders - there is no excuse not to act." - Senator Joe Biden

THE BIDEN RECORD ON DRUG CONTROL

Senator Joseph R. Biden, Jr. is a leader in Congress on combating drug use and stemming the flow of drugs into our country. Each year illegal drug use and violence from drug trafficking costs our country billions of dollars and thousands of lives. Using the bully pulpit of the Drug Caucus, Senator Biden has chaired hearings, solicited expert testimony, authored legislation, and released reports on domestic and international narcotic trafficking. Senator Biden's comprehensive legislative solutions reflect his understanding that drugs in America are a multi-billion dollar international criminal enterprise, a major cause of crime and gang activity, and a tragic addiction that tears apart families and neighborhoods.
