This briefing reports on preliminary results of research aimed at comparing hte cost effectiveness of the supply-control programs currently in fashion with the demand-control programs that appear to be gaining increased support. The research here focuses on cocaine. The analysis evaluates supply-control programs inside the United States as well as in source countries, and it evaluates treatment programs for light users as well as for heavy users of cocaine. The analysis does not consider prevention programs aimed at reducing the incidence of new users.
