Good morning, my name is Sean Ferns. I’m with the DEA Museum. On behalf of all of us here at the museum I wanna welcome you. Our monthly lecture series continues this morning.

We’re joined by Gene Haislip. Many of you remember Gene. He is an attorney but he is also the retired Deputy Assistant Administrator for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. Until his retirement in March of 1997 Mr. Haislip served for 17 years as the head of the Office of Diversion Control here at DEA.

He is the originator and author of The Chemical Diversion and Trafficking Act, Provisions of the Vienna Convention of 1988, the Designer Drugs Legislation, the Controlled Substance Amendments of 1984 and the Narcotic Treatment Act of 1973.
