Carlton Turner at his desk, 12/02/1982, c11499-10

Turner was appointed Senior Policy Adviser for Drug Policy in July 1981. In March 1982, his title changed to Director of the Drug Abuse Policy Office. He took on the additional title of Special Assistant to the President for Drug Abuse Policy in April, 1983. In March 1985, he was appointed Deputy Assistant to the President for Drug Abuse Policy. Turner served as the President’s adviser for drug abuse policy and assisted Nancy Reagan with her domestic and international drug abuse education projects. Turner left the White House staff effective December 31, 1986.

This collection reflects the broad range of activities and projects that Carlton Turner initiated and oversaw during his years at the White House. Under his leadership, the Drug Abuse Policy Office was heavily involved in drug awareness, education, and prevention outreach initiatives. It also coordinated discussion and policy on drug law enforcement issues and drug eradication efforts. Turner took an active role in the international aspects of the drug abuse problem, giving many foreign interviews and meeting with heads of state, foreign government officials, and directors of international addiction treatment organizations. The collection also reflects the scientific aspects of drug use and addiction treatment, due to Turner’s research background in chemistry and the pharmacology of marijuana.
