Notes:

 A fuller historical series, back to 1985 for reporting countries, is available in the Supplementary tables section of this Statistical bulletin     

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

 (2) All seizures are included (Police, Coast Guard and Customs). 9 tablets of LSD were also seized in 1996, 1 in 1997, 2.5 in 1999, 17 in 2000 and 1 in 2001.     

 (3) 4 tablets of LSD were also seized in 1999; and 10 tablets and 1.1 kg were seized in 2000.     

 (4) 0.02 kg of liquid LSD were also seized in 2004.      

 (5) 4 bottles and 0.5 pill of LSD were also seized in 2004; 1 bottles and 0.003 kg in 2005; 33 bottles and 0.015 kg in 2006; 1 tablet in 2007; and 2 bottles in 2008. 

 (6) 2.1 kg of LSD were also seized in 2001.     

 (7) 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. In 2006, data include 2500 tablets.   

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

 (9) Due to new conversion rules introduced in 2005 previous data are not directly comparable. 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.
