To the Congress of the United States:
I am pleased to transmit today to the Congress andto the American people the 1
995 National Drug Control Strategy 
, which confirms our resolve, iden-tifies my priorities for addressing this Nation’scontinuing drug problem, and further defines myAdministration’s plan for reducing illegal drug useand drug trafficking.The
1995 Strategy 
comes at a time of enormouschange and new challenges for our country. Soci-eties around the globe are shifting from the Indus-trial Age to the Information Age—from the ColdWar with its global division to a world united ineconomic cooperation and hope for the future.This is a time of new beginnings and of greathope, but also a time of tremendous uncertainty.During this period, we must make sure that weremain the strongest country in the world and itsmost profound force for peace and freedom. Ourgreatest challenge, however, will be to keep theAmerican dream alive for all our citizens.These challenges give the
1995 Strategy 
new andadded importance. We cannot keep the Ameri-can dream alive for working families if our youthare turning to illegal drug use, or if the violencespawned by drug use and trafficking continuesunabated. We cannot compete in the new worldeconomy and foster economic cooperation amongnations while international drug trafficking isrampant. We cannot enter the new millennium asthe strongest country in the world unless we con-tinue to lead the way against illegal drugs and theterror they bring—both here at home and abroad.The
1995 Strategy 
responds to the need for a neweconomy and a new government. It recognizesthat drug use and trafficking drain our economy ofbillions of dollars and prevent millions of Ameri-cans from achieving their full potential. This
Strategy 
also recognizes that the drug problems oftoday and tomorrow will not be solved by yester-day’s government. Our solutions must be lessbureaucratic, more creative and flexible, and the
1995 Strategy 
starts us down that path.Most importantly, the
Strategy 
responds to theneed for a new covenant between the Americanpeople and their government—one that matchesmore opportunity with more responsibility. This
Strategy 
gives those who have fallen prey to drugsthe opportunity to change their behavior, and itgives these youths who are at risk for starting touse drugs positive alternatives.This
Strategy 
sends strong messages of responsibili-ty on all fronts: to the international communitythat all nations must work together to reduce thesupply and demand for illegal drugs; to traffickersand criminals that they will pay a stiff penalty fordestroying our children’s futures; and to ourNation’s youth that drugs are not only illegal—butthat using them is dumb, dangerous, and likely toget you hurt, and maybe even killed. Legalizationis a formula for disaster. And it is precisely becauseof the damage that drug use causes that I am, andwill remain, unequivocally opposed to the legaliza-tion of any of the drugs that are currently illegal.The government cannot solve this Nation’s drugproblem, or any other social ill, alone. But neithercan we shirk our responsibility. That is why this
1995 Strategy 
extends the hand of partnership toall Americans—concerned citizens, communityleaders, teachers, law enforcement officers, par-ents, and leaders of the faith community—andasks them to begin anew the process of engagingall Americans in addressing this important issue.
