Facts about the DEA:
The DEA was officially formed on July 1 of 1973. The administration was established by the passing of the Reorganization Plan; a full-fledged effort to organize the federal agencies responsible for diminishing the adverse effects of drugs on American Society.
The legislation, which ultimately created the Drug Enforcement Administration, was signed by President Richard Nixon and proposed the creation of a single federal agency to enforce the federal drug laws and consolidate, as well as coordinate, the government’s expansive drug control policies.
The preceding agencies of the DEA were the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs and the Office of Drug Abuse Law Enforcement. The Drug Enforcement Administration, to mitigate the dangers associated with drug use and to lessen the supply of deadly drugs in the United States, employees nearly 11,000 agents and operates with an annual budget of approximately $2.5 billion.
