Best Answer

No, it does not.

The dept. of the treasury did however establish the Federal Bureau of Narcotics in 1930. In 1968 the Federal Bureau of Narcotics merged with the Bureau of Drug Abuse Control (part of the U.S. dept. of Health, Education, and Welfare) to form the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs, the predecessor of the DEA. The DEA is under the U.S. Dept. of Justice.

It’s called the Drug Enforcement Administration - not the Drug Enforcement "Agency". It has always been under the Department of Justice since its inception on July 1, 1973.

Answer 1: All of them, except the United States Secret Service.The US Secret Service is the gun- and badge- and handcuff-carrying arm of the US Department of the Treasury. Secret Service agents enforce laws related to the Treasury and its function, including counterfeiting. A specially-trained and appointed group of the US Secret Service also provides protection for the President and Vice President of the United States and their families; as well as all serious candidates for those offices, along with a number of other persons in government.The US Department of the Treasury operates under the direction of the Secretary of the Treasury, which is a Cabinet-level position, appointed by the President of the United States.
