Notes:

1. Where the quantity of a seizure is recorded as 'trace' it is not included in these figures.

2. Drugs can be seized in a variety of forms or preparation types. In this table, quantities of drugs have been converted to weights (kg), liquids (litres) or tablets (000s). To present all seized quantities within a given drug type in terms of one comparable unit, conversion factors are applied to estimate the overall quantity for that drug.

3. Tablets include doses, dots and squares.

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

5. Corrections have been made to the Tayside Police figures as the quantities of cocaine and crack were transposed in the Drug Seizures by Scottish Police Forces, 2010-11 bulletin.
