dc.description.abstractIn my research of the War on Drugs, I realized that there are many aspects which need to be explored. For example, is the war cost-effective? Does it target a particular group of people? What is the ultimate goal? In examining these many aspects, I decided to focus on two areas: the erosion of American civil liberties the war has perpetuated and the hypocrisy and failure of the War on Drugs abroad. I chose these two areas because they both involve the increasing power and control of the federal government. With the erosion of our civil liberties, the government is gaining further control over the American people and their actions. In the drug war abroad, the federal government is strengthening its hold on Third World countries which rely on U.S. foreign aid.en_US
