Notes:

1. Seizures involving more than one type of drug are counted as a single seizure in the total number of seizures but are counted separately against each individual drug type involved. For more information please see Note 3.3.1.

2. Figures for 'class C drugs' include amineptine, which became controlled drugs on 28 March 2011.

3. The previously published number of seizures for Grampian Police for 2010-11 were based on Grampian Police Quarterly statistics. The revised figures for 2010-11 are drawn directly from Grampian Police's crime recording system and as such provide greater accuracy. The quantity of drugs seized have not been affected.

4. Lothian and Borders Police are unable to provide seizures figures for some drug types. For more information please see Note 3.3.6.
