Statistical Bulletin 2018 — drug law offences

Reports of offences against national drug legislation (use, possession, trafficking, etc.) reflect differences in law but also the different ways in which the law is enforced and applied, and the priorities and resources allocated to specific problems by criminal justice agencies. In addition, information systems on drug law offences/offenders vary considerably between countries, especially as regards recording procedures, definitions and statistical units (see below). Methods and definitions for the data on this page can be found on the Drug law offences methods and definitions page.
