The problem of chemical abuse is one which affects every citizen of the United States. Alcohol has been used and abused for centuries. Tobacco has recently been shown to cause serious bodily damage. Marijuana, cocaine and heroin are drugs that have become a serious national problem in recent decades (National Survey on Drug Abuse: Main Findings, 1979). Even such common drugs as aspirin and caffeine can be abused, as can drugs prescribed by physicians for medical purposes. Because drug use has grown to epidemic proportions, many individuals and groups are dedicated to the purpose of making our country drug-free by the end of the century.
