The DEA was founded on July 1, 1973. Founded to be combat the domestic drug trafficking issue.

Prevent the distribution of illegal narcotics in the United States. The DEA's mission statement is "Enforce the controlled substances laws and regulations of the United States and bring to the criminal and civil justice system of the United States."
The DEA deals with a particular market, the drug market. If the prices of drugs are high then obviously the DEA is doing their job and the drug market is slowly failing. If the prices of drugs are low then the DEA knows they need to step it up a notch and get the job done.

The DEA is dealing with doctors violating the Controlled Substances Act. Heroin overdose deaths. Searching for drug dealers and drug users. Heroin is a huge deal.
