Domestic Cannabis Eradication/Suppression Program
The Domestic Cannabis Eradication/Suppression Program is a Drug Enforcement Administration-funded program to eradicate cannabis in the United States. DEA began the program in 1979 during the War on Drugs. In the first few years of the Reagan administration, the program expanded from seven states to forty. By 1985 it was active in all fifty states.
As of 2018, the program continues alongside various degrees of legalization or decriminalization in all but three U.S. states.
