End of the War on Drugs; So What's Next?

Now that the War on Drugs has been officially declared at an end by the nation's Drug Czar Gil Kerlikowske Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy it is time to "open a new front" on the prevention, treatment and recovery from substance abuse addiction. 

I hope the shift in emphasis will also mean a shift in resources to programs and policies that promote prevention awareness and education, better and more treatment opportunities for adolescents and young adults and support for and recognition that recovery from addiction is an integral part of the prevention paradigm as well.
