Drug Enforcement Administration

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is a United States federal law enforcement agency tasked with suppressing the sale of illegal recreational drugs.

To date, the DEA has not made a significant impact upon the flow of illegal drugs into the United States, despite the dedicated efforts of thousands of employees and the deaths of a number of undercover detectives.
