Notes:

 (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 substance; 57794 seizures of all cannabis products were made in 2002, and 67443 in 2003.     

 (4) Data include number of seizures of herbal cannabis, cannabis resin, cannabis plants and cannabis seeds.     

 (5) The value for 1995 includes cannabis seeds.     

 (6) In 2003 seizures of resin and herbal cannabis could not be broken down by product; 3421 seizures of both products were made in 2003.     

 (7) Data are not available before 2000.     

 (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 number of large seizures only is reported; from 2004 all seizures are reported.      

 (10) Before 2006 data have been reported on a calendar year basis. Since 2006 seizures data will be published on a financial year basis (Data reported for 2006 is for 2006/07, data reported in 2007 is for 2007/08 and so on). There are no customs data for Scotland and Northern Ireland in 2006/07. In 2007 data are for England, Wales and Northern Ireland only (England and Wales reported both police and customs seizures and Northern Ireland only police seizures); no data for Scotland is available.
