New Lecture: See DEA Museum ArtifactsLast Updated: Tuesday, October 30, 2018
On October 30, 2018, the DEA Museum hosted an interactive discussion entitled, “From Addiction to Zig-Zag and Everything in Between: Artifacts from the DEA Museum Collection.”
Drug misuse, addiction, and rising numbers of drug overdose deaths affect millions of Americans daily. Understanding the history, causes, and consequences of addiction helps the public to better understand the problem as well as proposed solutions.
The Drug Enforcement Administration Museum’s collection of nearly 5,000 artifacts documents the history of drug policy, drug law enforcement, drug addiction, and drug education in the United States. Museum programs, exhibits, and educational outreach support the DEA’s mission to enforce controlled substances laws and regulations of the United States and reduce the use and availability of illicit controlled substances.
