The Supply Reduction Section
is responsible for assisting CICAD member states in strengthening their capacity to control drugs and related contraband. This includes illicit drugs, such as heroin, cocaine and marijuana that are plant-based,
and MDMA (Ecstasy), amphetamine-like stimulants, hallucinogens and other synthetic or chemical-based drugs, as well as the chemical
substances used to produce both classes of drugs. There are also certain pharmaceutical drugs used for medical or scientific purposes that are subject to abuse
and diverted from legitimate medical channels. In addition to the foregoing, the Section works with member states to strengthen other aspects of drug control, including general drug enforcement and customs work, maritime cooperation, and port security.
