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 'other class A drugs' include tapentadol, which became a controlled drug on 28 March 2011.

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