The Secretary of Health and Human Services's Sixth Triennial Report To Congress On Drug Abuse And Addiction has been placed online. The report provides data on major forms of drug use (including marijuana, cocaine, nicotine, and anabolic steroids), information on links between drug abuse and infectious diseases, and an appendix detailing the types, medical uses, modes of transmission, and "period of detection" for commonly abused drugs. Subtitled "25 Years of Discovery to Advance the Health of the Public, " the report also summarizes National Institute on Drug Abuse research and findings in the areas of neurobiology, genetics, and behavior; treatment advances; drug use, HIV, and other infectious diseases; fetal and childhood development; prevention of drug use and addiction; women's health and gender differences; minority population studies; and outreach and international programs. The above address takes users to table of contents's links to the HTML version of the report; the report can also be downloaded from this page in .pdf format.
