                               Amendment

    The amendment (stated in terms of the text reported on 
November 18, 2005 by the Committee on Government Reform; H. 
Rept. 109-315, part 1) is as follows:
    Strike Title II and amend the table of contents 
accordingly.

                          Purpose and Summary

    Title II of H.R. 2829, as reported by the Committee on 
Government Reform, established minimum standards for the 
testing of steroids and other performance-enhancing substances 
by professional sports leagues. H.R. 2829 required the Office 
of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) to issue regulations 
requiring certain professional sports organizations adopt 
uniform minimum testing and enforcement provisions for steroid 
and other performance-enhancing drugs programs. Additionally, 
H.R. 2829 required certain reports by the sports leagues and by 
the ONDCP. The regulations include provisions for the timing 
and frequency of testing athletes, the substances tested, and 
penalties for athletes who violate the policies.

                  Background and Need for Legislation

    Athletics have played an important role in the cultural 
development and identity of the United States. America's 
enthusiasm for participation in sports is exceeded only by its 
enthusiasm as spectators. Sports at the collegiate, Olympic, 
and professional levels have evolved since the latter half of 
the twentieth century into a profitable industry for many of 
the industry participants. Nowhere is this more apparent than 
at the highest level of competition: professional sports.
    The average annual player's salary in the most popular 
professional team sports is over $1 million, with the highest 
paid athletes earning as much as $20 million per season in 
salary. Additionally, endorsement opportunities for individual 
professional athletes often produce substantial financial 
gains. A plethora of media outlets nowexist to provide non-stop 
coverage and broadcast of major professional sports, including sport-
specific mediums. In total, the professional sports and related 
industries are multi-billion dollar enterprises.
    Most sports experts believe the media attention and riches 
afforded to top athletes contribute to the temptation facing 
many athletes to use performance-enhancing substances for a 
competitive advantage. The prospect of earning millions of 
dollars can outweigh the risk, if any, of being caught using 
illegal or prohibited performance-enhancing substances.
    Although the financial rewards in the modern sports era are 
greater than at any time in history, they are not the sole 
reason for doping in sports. In fact, the history of athletic 
doping, particularly through the use of stimulants, has been 
traced to the earliest days of the Olympics. Of greater 
relevance to the history of modern doping is the increased 
acceptance of testosterone and steroid use, along with other 
substances and techniques, by some athletes for their 
physiological benefits in the latter half of the twentieth 
century. Steroid use by Olympic athletes is reported to have 
been widespread beginning as early as the 1960's, and naturally 
began to find its way into professional sports.
    To combat doping, the Olympic movement created the World 
Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) in 1999 to implement and enforce 
testing policies for Olympic sports. In the United States, the 
U.S. Anti-Doping Agency performs the testing for Olympic 
athletes. Some professional sports, including professional 
tennis, follow the WADA code for prohibited substances and 
penalties.
    Other professional sports associations and their players 
have responded similarly to the growing awareness of doping and 
implemented anti-drug testing programs during the past two 
decades. However, not all programs test for the same 
performance-enhancing substances, test using strict protocols 
including frequency of testing, nor do they enforce violations 
with significant penalties--if at all. Some professional sports 
associations do not even test for steroids and other 
performance-enhancing substances. While these provisions have 
historically been the subject of negotiation between the 
players and the sports associations, many of the programs are 
considered by experts to be deficient, particularly in regard 
to the penalties imposed on a player for violating the policy.
    The integrity of professional sports is diminished because 
there are inconsistent and inadequate testing policies among 
the various leagues. Recent allegations and admissions by 
current and former athletes of regarding their use of steroids 
have undermined the credibility of some sports and their 
testing programs, and cast a wider doubt about the prevalence 
of doping by professional athletes. More importantly, the 
effect of the disparate policies--including those that do not 
even test for certain illegal substances nor punish athletes 
for taking the substances--is to promote the perception that 
the use of such substances by some professional athletes is at 
best tolerated and at worst encouraged.
    Such an effect contributes to the serious problem of youths 
increasingly using performance-enhancing substances, such as 
illegal steroids. Based on the May 2004 Centers for Disease 
Control report, there are more than 800,000 high school 
students who have used or are currently using anabolic 
steroids. There is no doubt that youths often seek to emulate 
sports idols, particularly in the professional ranks. Absent 
rigorous testing and penalties for professional athletes who 
use performance-enhancing substances, there is a clear message 
sent to youths that deterrence is not a priority.
    The Committee's concern is the diminished value of the 
positive qualities of sport and the adverse health consequences 
of performance-enhancing substances for individuals.
    In order to examine these issues more closely, the 
Subcommittee on Commerce, Trade, and Consumer Protection held a 
joint oversight hearing with the Subcommittee on Health on 
steroid use on Thursday, March 10, 2005. The hearing was 
entitled ``Steroids in Sports: Cheating the System and Gambling 
Your Health.'' The Subcommittees received testimony from: 
Congressman Jim Ryun; Don Hooton, Taylor Hooton Foundation; Dr. 
Linn Goldberg, Oregon Health & Science University; Robert 
Kanaby, Executive Director, National Federation of State High 
School Associations; Sandra Worth, Head Athletic Trainer, 
University of Maryland, on behalf of the National Athletic 
Trainers Association; Dr. Charles Yesalis, Pennsylvania State 
University; Dr. Ralph Hale, Chairman, United States Anti-Doping 
Agency; Adolpho Birch, Counsel for Labor Relations, National 
Football League; Frank Coonelly, Senior Vice President, Major 
League Baseball; Mary E. Wilfert, Chief Liaison, Committee on 
Competitive Safeguards and Medical Aspects of Sports, The 
National Collegiate Athletic Association.
    While the Subcommittee on Commerce, Trade, and Consumer 
Protection did not hold any hearings on H.R. 2829, the 
Subcommittee held two days of legislative hearing on H.R. 1862, 
the Drug Free Sports Act, on May 18 and 19, 2005. The 
Subcommittee received testimony from: Frank Shorter, former 
Chairman of the United States Anti-Doping Agency; Donald 
Garber, Commissioner, Major League Soccer; Robert Foose, 
Executive Director, Major League Soccer Players Union; Allan H. 
(Bud) Selig, Commissioner, Major League Baseball; Donald Fehr, 
Executive Director, Major League Baseball Players Association; 
Gary Bettman, Commissioner, National Hockey League; Robert 
Goodenow, Executive Director, National Hockey League Players 
Association; David Stern, Commissioner, National Basketball 
Association; William Hunter, Executive Director, National 
Basketball Players Association; Paul Tagliabue, Commissioner, 
National Football League; and Gene Upshaw, Executive Director, 
National Football League Players Association.
    Following these hearings, on Wednesday, May 25, 2005, the 
Subcommittee on Commerce, Trade, and Consumer Protection met in 
open markup session and approved H.R. 1862, the Drug Free 
Sports Act, for full Committee consideration, amended, by voice 
vote, a quorum being present. H.R. 1862 was superseded by H.R. 
3084, which was marked up on Wednesday, June 29, 2005, by the 
full Committee, and H.R. 3084 was ordered favorably reported to 
the House, amended, by a roll call vote of 38 yeas and 2 nays, 
a quorum being present.
    The Committee filed a report on H.R. 3084 (H. Rpt. 109-210, 
Part I) on July 28, 2005, which reflects the legislative 
position of the Committee on Energy and Commerce with regards 
to legislation relating to steroids.
    The Committee does not waive its jurisdiction over Title I 
of the bill, as it received a referral of the bill upon 
introduction prior to the inclusion of Title II by the 
Committee on Government Reform. Accordingly, the Committee on 
Energy and Commerce Committee reserves its right to seek 
conferees on any provisions of the bill that are within its 
jurisdiction during any House-Senate conference that may be 
convened on this legislation.

                                Hearings

    The Committee on Energy and Commerce has not held hearings 
on the legislation.

                        Committee Consideration

    On Thursday, February 16, 2006, the full Committee met in 
open markup session to consider H.R. 2829, as reported by the 
Committee on Government Reform, and ordered H.R. 2829 reported 
to the House, amended, without recommendation, by a voice vote, 
a quorum being present.

                            Committee Votes

    Clause 3(b) of rule XIII of the Rules of the House of 
Representatives requires the Committee to list the record votes 
on the motion to report legislation and amendments thereto. 
There were no record votes taken in connection with ordering 
H.R. 2829 reported. A motion by Mr. Barton to order H.R. 2829 
reported to the House, amended, without recommendation, was 
agreed to by a voice vote.

                      Committee Oversight Findings

    Pursuant to clause 3(c)(1) of rule XIII of the Rules of the 
House of Representatives, the Committee has not held oversight 
or legislative hearings on this legislation.

         Statement of General Performance Goals and Objectives

    The purpose of H.R. 2829, the Office of National Drug 
Control Policy Reauthorization Act of 2005 is to reauthorize 
the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) within the 
Executive Office of the President for five years, through the 
end of FY 2010.

   New Budget Authority, Entitlement Authority, and Tax Expenditures

    In compliance with clause 3(c)(2) of rule XIII of the Rules 
of the House of Representatives, the Committee finds that H.R. 
2829, the Office of National Drug Control Policy 
Reauthorization Act of 2005, would result in no new or 
increased budget authority, entitlement authority, or tax 
expenditures or revenues.

                        Committee Cost Estimate

    The Committee adopts as its own the cost estimate prepared 
by the Director of the Congressional Budget Office pursuant to 
section 402 of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974.

                  Congressional Budget Office Estimate

    Pursuant to clause 3(c)(3) of rule XIII of the Rules of the 
House of Representatives, the following is the cost estimate 
provided by the Congressional Budget Office pursuant to section 
402 of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974:

                                     U.S. Congress,
                               Congressional Budget Office,
                                     Washington, DC, March 2, 2006.
Hon. Joe Barton,
Chairman, Committee on Energy and Commerce,
House of Representatives, Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Chairman: The Congressional Budget Office has 
prepared the enclosed estimate for H.R. 2829, a bill to 
reauthorize the Office of National Drug Control Policy Act.
    If you wish further details on this estimate, we will be 
pleased to provide them. The CBO staff contact is Matthew 
Pickford.
            Sincerely,
                                 Donald B. Marron, Acting Director.
    Enclosure.

H.R. 2829--A bill to reauthorize the Office of National Drug Control 
        Policy Act

    Summary: H.R. 2829 would reauthorize operations of the 
Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) and programs 
administered by that office through 2010. Major programs 
administered by that office include the High-Intensity Drug 
Trafficking Areas program, the National Youth Anti-Drug Media 
Campaign, and the Counterdrug Technology Assessment Center.
    Assuming appropriation of the necessary amounts, CBO 
estimates that implementing H.R. 2829 would cost about $2.6 
billion over the 2007-2011 period. Of this total, about $1.9 
billion would result from amounts specifically authorized for 
the National Youth Anti-Drug Media Campaign and High-Intensity 
Drug Trafficking Areas.
    By reauthorizing ONDCP's authority to accept and spend 
gifts, enacting H.R. 2829 could affect direct spending and 
revenues, but CBO estimates that any such impact would be 
negligible.
    H.R. 2829 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector 
mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA); 
any costs incurred by state, local, or tribal entities would 
result from participating in a voluntary federal program.
    Estimated cost to the Federal Government: The estimated 
budgetary impact of H.R. 2829 is shown in the following table. 
The costs of this legislation fall within budget functions 750 
(administration of justice) and 800 (general government).

                                                                 -----------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
a The 2006 level is the amount appropriated for that year for programs administered by the Office of National
  Drug Control Policy.

Note: Components may not sum to totals because of rounding.

    Basis of Estimate: For this estimate, CBO assumes that the 
bill will be enacted during fiscal year 2006, that the 
necessary amounts will be provided each year, and that spending 
will follow historical patterns for the ONDCP and its programs.

Spending subject to appropriation

    The bill would reauthorize all the programs of ONDCP 
through 2010. The current authorization for ONDCP expired at 
the end of fiscal year 2003 (although the office continued to 
receive funding in 2004, 2005, and 2006). Based on information 
from ONDCP and historical spending patterns of the agency, CBO 
estimates that these authorizations, if funded beginning in 
fiscal year 2007, would result in outlays of about $387 million 
in 2007 and about $2.6 billion over the 2007-2011 fiscal year.
    High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas. Section 109 would 
authorize the appropriation of $290 million for fiscal years 
2007 and 2008 and $300 million a year for 2009 and 2010 for the 
High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas program. This program 
coordinates drug-control efforts among local, state, and 
federal law enforcement agencies. Assuming appropriation of the 
specified amounts, CBO estimates that implementing this 
provision would cost $73 million in fiscal year 2007 and $1.1 
billion over the 2007-2011 period.
    National Youth Anti-Drug Media Campaign. Section 112 would 
authorize the appropriation of $195 million in fiscal year 2007 
and $210 million a year for the 2008-2010 period for the 
National Youth Anti-Drug Media Campaign (NYADMC) program. 
NYADMC delivers anti-drug messages through mass communications 
to help prevent and reduce youth drug use. Assuming 
appropriations of the specified amounts, CBO estimates that 
implementing this provision would cost $176 million in 2007 and 
about $825 million over the 2007-2011 period.
    Other Federal Drug Control Programs. H.R. 2829 would 
authorize the appropriation of such sums as necessary to 
operate other federal drug-control programs (excluding NYADMC) 
through fiscal year 2010. Those include the Drug-Force 
Communities program, National Drug Court Institute, and the 
U.S. Anti-Doping Agency. Based on the level of funding for 
2006, information from ONDCP, and adjusting for anticipated 
inflation, CBO estimates that implementing the programs would 
cost about $81 million in 2007 and $387 million over the 2007-
2011 period.
    Counterdrug Technology Assessment Center. The legislation 
would authorize the appropriation of such sums as necessary to 
operate the Counterdrug Assessment Center. The center 
coordinates counterdrug research and development activities for 
the federal government. Because the bill did not specify 
funding levels, CBO estimated the costs by adjusting 2006 
funding for anticipated inflation. On that basis, we estimate 
that operation of the center would cost $29 million in 2007 and 
$126 million over the 2007-2011 period.
    Office of National Drug Control Policy. H.R. 2829 would 
authorize the appropriation of such sums as necessary for 
ONDCP. The office establishes policies, priorities, and 
objectives for federal drug-control programs. Assuming 
appropriation of the necessary amounts, CBO estimates that 
these activities would cost $24 million in 2007 and $115 
million over the 2007-2011 period. This estimate is based on 
historical spending patterns and assumes that the appropriation 
for 2006 would be adjusted for anticipated inflation.
    Other Provisions. Section 106 would require ONDCP to 
produce a biannual plan to increase the coordination among 
federal agencies working to combat illegal drug use. Based on 
information from ONDCP, CBO estimates that completing such 
plans would cost $3 million a year.
    Section 113 would amend the responsibilities and 
authorities of the United States Interdiction Coordinator. 
Based within the ONDCP, the U.S. Interdiction Coordinator would 
be responsible for coordinating efforts to prevent drugs from 
entering the United States. Based on information from ONDCP and 
the Department of Homeland Security, CBO estimates that 
increased staffing levels and new reporting requirements 
necessary under the bill would cost $2 million annually.
    The legislation includes other provisions that would 
establish new reporting requirements and procedures for 
preparing budget requests for ONDCP. CBO estimates that those 
provisions would cost $2 million annually.

Revenues and direct spending

    H.R. 2829 would reauthorize ONDCP to accept donations of 
real and personal property. Gifts are classified in the budget 
as revenues, and spending of such sums would constitute direct 
spending. According to ONDCP, it has not received any gifts in 
recent years and does not expect to receive any under this 
authority. Hence, CBO estimates that additional revenues and 
direct spending under H.R. 2829 would be negligible.
    Intergovernmental and private-sector impact: H.R. 2829 
contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as 
defined in UMRA; any cost incurred by state, local, or tribal 
entities would result from participating in a voluntary federal 
program.
    Previous CBO estimates: On August 5, 2005, CBO transmitted 
a cost estimate for H.R. 2829 as ordered reported by the House 
Committee on Government Reform on June 16, 2005. On July 7, 
2005, CBO transmitted a cost estimate for H.R. 2565, a bill to 
reauthorize the Office of National Drug Control Policy Act and 
to establish minimum drug-testing standards for major 
professional sports leagues, as ordered reported by the House 
Committee on Government Reform on May 26, 2005.
    H.R. 2829 and H.R. 2565 are similar; all three bills would 
reauthorize ONDCP and programs administered through that 
office. However, the three pieces of legislation would 
authorize varying amounts for various activities over different 
time periods. CBO's cost estimates for the three bills reflect 
those differences.
    Estimate prepared by: Federal Costs: Matthew Pickford and 
Mark Grabowicz. Impact on State, Local, and Tribal Governments: 
Sarah Puro. Impact on the Private Sector: Craig Cammarata.
    Estimate approved by: Peter H. Fontaine, Deputy Assistant 
Director for Budget Analysis.

                this system to all agency drug control programs 
                and budgets receiving funds scored as drug 
                control agency funding.
          [(2) Submission to congress.--Not later than February

                related goals and objectives of the National 
                Drug Control Program agencies and ensures that 
                drug control agency goals and budgets support 
                and are fully consistent with the National Drug 
                Control Strategy; and

Areas Program.
  [(b) Designation.--The Director, upon consultation with the 
Attorney General, the Secretary of the Treasury, heads of the 
National Drug Control Program agencies, and the Governor of 
each applicable State, may designate any specified area of the 
United States as a high intensity drug trafficking area. After 
making such a designation and in order to provide Federal 
assistance to the area so designated, the Director may--
          [(1) obligate such sums as appropriated for the High 
        Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas Program;
          [(2) direct the temporary reassignment of Federal 
        personnel to such area, subject to the approval of the 
        head of the department or agency that employs such 
        personnel;
          [(3) take any other action authorized under section 
        704 to provide increased Federal assistance to those 
        areas;
          [(4) coordinate activities under this subsection 
        (specifically administrative, recordkeeping, and funds 
        management activities) with State and local officials.
  [(c) Factors for Consideration.--In considering whether to 
designate an area under this section as a high intensity drug 
trafficking area, the Director shall consider, in addition to 
such other criteria as the Director considers to be 
appropriate, the extent to which--
          [(1) the area is a center of illegal drug production, 
        manufacturing, importation, or distribution;
          [(2) State and local law enforcement agencies have 
        committed resources to respond to the drug trafficking 
        problem in the area, thereby indicating a determination 
        to respond aggressively to the problem;
          [(3) drug-related activities in the area are having a 
        harmful impact in other areas of the country; and
          [(4) a significant increase in allocation of Federal 
        resources is necessary to respond adequately to drug-
        related activities in the area.
  [(d) Use of Funds.--The Director shall ensure that no Federal 
funds appropriated for the High Intensity Drug Trafficking 
Program are expended for the establishment or expansion of drug 
treatment programs.]

                a whole.
  (b) Designation.--The Director, upon consultation with the 
Attorney General, the Secretary of the Treasury, the Secretary 
of Homeland Security, heads of the National Drug Control 
Program agencies, and the Governor of each applicable State, 
may designate any specified area of the United States as a high 
intensity drug trafficking area. After making such a 
designation and in order to provide Federal assistance to the 
area so designated, the Director may--
          (1) obligate such sums as are appropriated for the 
        Program;
          (2) direct the temporary reassignment of Federal 
        personnel to such area, subject to the approval of the 
        head of the department or agency that employs such 
        personnel;
          (3) take any other action authorized under section 
        704 to provide increased Federal assistance to those 
        areas; and
          (4) coordinate activities under this section 
        (specifically administrative, recordkeeping, and funds 
        management activities) with State and local officials.
  (c) Petitions for Designation.--The Director shall establish 
regulations under which a coalition of interested law 
enforcement agencies from an area may petition for designation 
as a high intensity drug trafficking area. Such regulations 
shall provide for a regular review by the Director of the 
petition, including a recommendation regarding the merit of the 
petition to the Director by a panel of qualified, independent 
experts.
  (d) Factors for Consideration.--In considering whether to 
designate an area under this section as a high intensity drug 
trafficking area, the Director shall consider, in addition to 
such other criteria as the Director considers to be 
appropriate, the extent to which--
          (1) the area is a significant center of illegal drug 
        production, manufacturing, importation, or 
        distribution;
          (2) State and local law enforcement agencies have 
        committed resources to respond to the drug trafficking 
        problem in the area, thereby indicating a determination 
        to respond aggressively to the problem;
          (3) drug-related activities in the area are having a 
        significant harmful impact in the area, and in other 
        areas of the country; and
          (4) a significant increase in allocation of Federal 
        resources is necessary to respond adequately to drug-
        related activities in the area.
  (e) Organization of High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas.--
          (1) Executive board and officers.--To be eligible for 
        funds appropriated under this section, each high 
        intensity drug trafficking area shall be governed by an 
        Executive Board. The Executive Board shall designate a 
        chairman, vice chairman, and any other officers to the 
        Executive Board that it determines are necessary.
          (2) Responsibilities.--The Executive Board of a high 
        intensity drug trafficking area shall be responsible 
        for--
                  (A) providing direction and oversight in 
                establishing and achieving the goals of the 
                high intensity drug trafficking area;
                  (B) managing the funds of the high intensity 
                drug trafficking area;
                  (C) reviewing and approving all funding 
                proposals consistent with the overall objective 
                of the high intensity drug trafficking area; 
                and
                  (D) reviewing and approving all reports to 
                the Director on the activities of the high 
                intensity drug trafficking area.
          (3) Board representation.--None of the funds 
        appropriated under this section may be expended for any 
        high intensity drug trafficking area, or for a 
        partnership or region of a high intensity drug 
        trafficking area, if that area's, region's or 
        partnership's Executive Board does not apportion an 
        equal number of votes between representatives of 
        participating Federal agencies and representatives of 
        participating State and local agencies. Where it is 
        impractical for a equal number of representatives of 
        Federal agencies and State and local agencies to attend 
        a meeting of an Executive Board in person, the 
        Executive Board may use a system of proxy votes or 
        weighted votes to achieve the voting balance required 
        by this paragraph.
          (4) No agency relationship.--The eligibility 
        requirements of this section are intended to ensure the 
        responsible use of Federal funds. Nothing in this 
        section is intended to create an agency relationship 
        between individual high intensity drug trafficking 
        areas and the Federal Government.
  (f) Use of Funds.--The Director shall ensure that no Federal 
funds appropriated for the Program are expended for the 
establishment or expansion of drug treatment or drug use 
prevention programs.
  (g) Counterterrorism Activities.--
          (1) Assistance authorized.--The Director may 
        authorize use of resources available for the Program to 
        assist Federal, State, and local law enforcement 
        agencies in investigations and activities related to 
        terrorism and prevention of terrorism, especially but 
        not exclusively with respect to such investigations and 
        activities that are also related to drug trafficking.
          (2) Limitation.--The Director shall ensure--
                  (A) that assistance provided under paragraph 
                (1) remains incidental to the purpose of the 
                Program to reduce drug availability and carry 
                out drug-related law enforcement activities; 
                and
                  (B) that significant resources of the Program 
                are not redirected to activities exclusively 
                related to terrorism, except on a temporary 
                basis under extraordinary circumstances, as 
                determined by the Director.
  (h) Role of Drug Enforcement Administration.--The Director, 
in consultation with the Attorney General, shall ensure that a 
representative of the Drug Enforcement Administration is 
included in the Intelligence Support Center for each high 
intensity drug trafficking area.
  (i) Annual HIDTA Program Budget Submissions.--As part of the 
documentation that supports the President's annual budget 
request for the Office, the Director shall submit to Congress a 
budget justification that includes the following:

        trafficking area with supporting narrative descriptions 
        and rationale for each request.
          (2) A detailed justification for each funding request 
        that explains the reasons for the requested funding 
        level, how such funding level was determined based on a 
        current assessment of the drug trafficking threat in 
        each high intensity drug trafficking area, how such 
        funding will ensure that the goals and objectives of 
        each such area will be achieved, and how such funding 
        supports the National Drug Control Strategy.
  (j) Emerging Threat Response Fund.--
          (1) In general.--The Director may expend up to 10 
        percent of the amounts appropriated under this section 
        on a discretionary basis, to respond to any emerging 
        drug trafficking threat in an existing high intensity 
        drug trafficking area, or to establish a new high 
        intensity drug trafficking area or expand an existing 
        high intensity drug trafficking area, in accordance 
        with the criteria established under paragraph (2).
          (2) Consideration of impact.--In allocating funds 
        under this subsection, the Director shall consider--
                  (A) the impact of activities funded on 
                reducing overall drug traffic in the United 
                States, or minimizing the probability that an 
                emerging drug trafficking threat will spread to 
                other areas of the United States; and
                  (B) such other criteria as the Director 
                considers appropriate.
  (k) Evaluation.--
          (1) Initial report.--Not later than 90 days after the 
        date of the enactment of this subsection, the Director 
        shall, after consulting with the Executive Boards of

                        the national media campaign is 
                        evaluated in a manner that enables

                drug treatment are based on marijuana use.
                  (B) Potency levels of contemporary marijuana, 
                particularly hydroponically grown marijuana, 
                are significantly higher than in the past, 
                rising from under 1 percent of THC in the mid-
                1970s to as high as 30 percent today.
                  (C) Contemporary research has demonstrated 
                that youths smoking marijuana early in life may 
                be up to five times more likely to use hard 
                drugs.
                  (D) Contemporary research has demonstrated 
                clear detrimental effects in adolescent 
                educational achievement resulting from 
                marijuana use.
                  (E) Contemporary research has demonstrated 
                clear detrimental effects in adolescent brain 
                development resulting from marijuana use.
                  (F) An estimated 9,000,000 Americans a year 
                drive while under the influence of illegal 
                drugs, including marijuana.
                  (G) Marijuana smoke contains 50 to 70 percent 
                more of certain cancer causing chemicals than 
                tobacco smoke.
                  (H) Teens who use marijuana are up to four 
                times more likely to have a teen pregnancy than 
                teens who have not.
                  (I) Federal law enforcement agencies have 
                identified clear links suggesting that trade in 
                hydroponic marijuana facilitates trade by 
                criminal organizations in hard drugs, including 
                heroin.
                  (J) Federal law enforcement agencies have 
                identified possible links between trade in 
                cannabis products and financing for terrorist 
                organizations.
          (2) Emphasis on prevention of youth marijuana use.--
        In conducting advertising and activities otherwise 
        authorized under this section, the Director may 
        emphasize prevention of youth marijuana use.

be appropriated to the Office to carry out this section, 
$195,000,000 for each of fiscal years 2006 and 2007 and
