National Drug Enforcement Policy Board Law and Legal Definition

The National Drug Enforcement Policy Board is a board established in 1984 pursuant to the National Narcotics Act of 1984. The Board was established to coordinate efforts among federal agencies to combat narcotics trade and for other programs.

However, National Narcotics Leadership Act of 1988 replaced the board with the Office Of National Drug Control Policy. This office continues to implement the nation’s policies regarding education about the dangers of drug abuse as well as efforts to stifle the drug trade. The Office of National Drug Control Policy and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration are the two main federal agencies that are responsible for addressing narcotics issues in the U.S.
