Target America Opening
Target America: Opening Eyes to the Damage Drugs Cause
The DEA Museum opened a powerful exhibit September 2002 that traces the historic and contemporary connections between global drug trafficking and terrorism.
Target America allows visitors to explore a global and historical overview of this deadly connection.
Expanded in 2004, Target America now presents not only narco-terrorism issues, but also a look at other costs to society–costs to children, costs to the environment, costs to the body, and ends with an important look at how each visitor can work to break the cycle of drug abuse and drug-related violence.
The following organizations have significantly assisted the DEA Museum with the development and/or expansion of the Target America exhibit:
- The Office of National Drug Control Policy
- The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)
- The National Institute on Drug Abuse
- The National Guard
