- Can the ONDCP really take the full credit for lower drug use? What about other factors? -james_anatidae 14:48, 31 January 2006 (UTC)
- Agreed. The "progress" section sounds like something from an ONDCP pamphlet.Trevormartin227 01:47, 16 March 2006 (UTC)
if by lowering, you mean, going from an F to a D-... yeah. We still rank as one of the 2 highest use drug countries in the world, so I'm not sure what "lowered" means... there's a lot of points within the F range before getting to a D-... —Preceding unsigned comment added by Informer0 (talk • contribs) 23:28, 18 July 2008 (UTC)
Heavy on the "controversies" not much in terms of what the office actually does, how its arranged, oversight, etc. Article is heavly biased toward anti-public health POV Elmang
- it isn't biased, if the office is controversial the controversy should be represented here. if you have contradictory data to balance it, do add it, but as long as you are not providing any don't flag it as POV. Let The Sunshine In 20:23, 10 March 2007 (UTC)
- moreover the controversy paragraph is quite short. if you want to censor it, wikipedia is not the place. Let The Sunshine In 20:25, 10 March 2007 (UTC)
Since NPR and other major news outlets did actually cover these controversies, as I recall (search npr.org for archives) I disagree with this dispute. However, I do think this page should be watched for who edits what. It's likely prone to a debate against two sides, both of which I frankly think are a bit too evangelical for my tastes: the pot lobby and the ONDCP itself (both of which have rather extreme agendas for this page). The quality of the sources are something I think should be the focus— not the neutrality itself, since many of these statements are not contradictory to more mainstream coverage of the same controversies. Neutrality affirmed.
IMO there should be much more "in terms of what the office actually does, how its arranged, oversight, etc." I decline to predict whether this will create more controversy or disputes concerning POV but it is important information. Moss&Fern (talk) 21:12, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

Reference to "September 2012" in Funding paragraph
"the number of young people using drugs in the U.S. declined by 23 percent between 2001 and 2006"
Under Effectiveness of ONDCP, Other, it is stated that "According to the University of Michigan's annual Monitoring the Future report, the number of young people using drugs in the U.S. declined by 23 percent between 2001 and 2006 "
When I reference the source, the percent decline between 2001 and 2006 was 5.9 percent. I would like a third party to verify and fix.
