Notes:

 : indicates data not available 

 ca = circa.   

 (1) Accurate data are not available before 2002 due to double counting of seizures by police and customs reports.   

 (2) In 1995: the number of seizures based on offences; since 1996: the numbers of seizures based on police register.   

 (3) In 2002 and 2003, seizures of cannabis products cannot be broken down by product; 57115 kg of cannabis were seized in 2002 and 82515 kg in 2003.   

 (4) Both 2004 and 2005 data are based on seizures made only by some police forces: they are not comparable between them, nor with previous years.   

 (5) The value for 1995 includes cannabis seeds.   

 (6) In 2003, seizures of cannabis resin and herbal cannabis cannot be broken down by product; 220.16 kg of herb and resin were seized in 2003.   

 (7) In 1997 and 1998 less than 0.1 kg were seized.   

 (8) Data refer to seizures made by the Customs and the National Service for Combating Organized Crime (NACOC), separately or in combination with other units within the Ministry of Interior.   

 (9) Up to 2003 the amount of large seizures only is reported; from 2004 all seizures are reported.
