Our last national commission on drug abuse was in 1973, and it begged 
us to "redirect" a strategy built on "incorrect assumptions."

This commission is the means to assessment and accountability that we 
should have done ourselves long ago.

We have reaped the whirlwind of dogged persistence in the face of 
miserable failure.
