Introduction

The Bureau of Justice Statistics is an agency of the U.S. Department of Justice, Washington, DC. In a 1993 report entitled Drugs, Crime, and the Justice System, the bureau presented an overview of how the U.S. justice system attempts to combat illegal drugs.

Many areas of society are included in the overview. Here we present summarized data in easy to review format, with new, post-1990 information provided by Mark Kleiman and Thai Ishizuka-Capp, both from the Drug Policy Analysis Program, School of Public Policy and Social Research, University of California, Los Angeles. Much of the information offered here is fully discussed throughout the alphabetical entries of the encyclopedia—in Volumes 1, 2, and 3. Consult the Index at the end of this volume for references to items of further interest.
