"A groundbreaking new report calls substance abuse one of America’s most pressing public health problems. And according to Chuck Rosenberg, acting administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration, the problem is “growing fast.”"

Rosenberg says:
1. DEA is, "really good at supply reduction" i.e. law enforcement against drug cartels and street gangs.
2. Demand must be reduced
3. National Take-Back Day is a, "good thing"
4. DEA needs help from, "doctors, pharmacies, manufacturers, and Congress."
