As the concern with drugs has risen ever higher, enormous political attention has been focused on the need for a national strategy. Congress created a new drug czar's office to coordinate federal anti-drug efforts. It also charged this new office with setting, for the first time, a national drug control strategy. A focus on national strategy, however, is misplaced because it ignores the local nature of drug problems.
