This paper will discuss interdiction, public education, and eradication programs as they relate to its overall counternarcotics strategies in Colombia, Guatemala, Bolivia, and Afghanistan (1980). The premise for the underlying research is that lessons learned from these efforts can help governments develop successful counternarcotic strategies in countries such as Afghanistan today. Although much has been written about current eradication programs in Afghanistan, very little research has been done on evaluating the potential overall effectiveness of the counternarcotics programs in historical and comparative perspective. Interdiction efforts in particular receive less attention and public information campaigns are rarely discussed. This paper intends to provide a first step in addressing all these gaps.
