Exhibit from the Drug Enforcement Administration explores the many costs

and consequences of illegal drugs

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Drug Enforcement Agency's (DEA) traveling exhibit Target America: Opening Eyes to the Damage Drugs Cause will open in Los Angeles at the California Science Center on October 2, 2008. Running through May 3, 2009 the exhibit will explore the science behind illegal drug addiction and the myriad costs of illegal drugs to individuals, American society and the world.

This includes the cost of lost productivity of users in the workplace, their health care, criminal justice costs, child welfare costs, and the impact their drug use has on everyone's health and safety.

"This exhibit will open eyes to the vast and tragic consequences of illegal drugs -- from their damaging health effects, to lost lives, to taxing our healthcare and social welfare systems, to billions in economic losses, to family despair, environmental harm, impaired worker performance, to funding terrorism," said DEA Acting Administrator Michele M.
