This working paper has been commissioned by the Western Hemisphere Drug Policy Commission, a Congressionally established body mandated to evaluate U.S. drug policies and programs in the Western Hemisphere with the aim of making recommendations to the President and Congress on the future of counter narcotics policies. The topic discussed in this manuscript deals with matters of drug supply-oriented policies and interventions with a particular focus on available supply-side indicators used to inform contemporary drug policy, the limits of those indicators, the future challenges of drug policy, and how to improve indicators such that they appropriately incorporate harms.
