More Proof between Crime and Drug Use!.

June 15, 2011, Director Gil Kerlikowske released the 2010 Arrestee Drug Monitoring Annual Report (ADAM II).  The 2010 report reveals that in the 10 participating cities/localities, more than half of study participants tested positive for at least one illicit drug or medication, ranging from 52% to 83 %, illustrating the link between drug use and crime.

The Arrestee Drug Abuse Monitoring (ADAM II) program is a unique data collection program that conducts interviews and collects urine specimens in police booking facilities with adult male arrestees within 48 hours of their arrest. Since 2007 ADAM II has been sponsored by the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP). The ADAM program is a critical source of information for policymakers dealing with the problems of drug use.
