The Bureau of Narcotic and Dangerous Drugs directly preceded the Drug Enforcement Administration.
The Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs (BNDD) was a predecessor agency of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). It was formed as a subsidiary of the United States Department of Justicemarker in 1968, combining the Bureau of Narcotics (from the United States Department of the Treasurymarker) and Bureau of Drug Abuse Control (from the United States Department of Health, Education, and Welfare's Food and Drug Administration) into one agency.

In 1971 the BNDD was composed of 1,500 agents and had a budget of some $43 million (which was more than fourteen times the size of the budget of the former Bureau of Narcotics).

In January 1971 the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) director, Richard Helms, approved a program of "covert recruitment and security clearance support to BNDD", on request of the BNDD director, John Ingersoll.
Ingersoll suspected widespread corruption among BNDD agents, and in December 1970 requested the CIA's assistance in rooting it out.


In 1973, the BNDD was merged into the newly formed DEA.
