 : indicates data not available 

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

 Numbers are rounded to the nearest kg except for quantities less than 1 kg where more precise information is provided when available. 

 (1) 1997 data include 3321 kg of cocaine salts and 8 kg of cocaine base. 

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

 (3) All seizures are included (Police, Coast Guard and Customs). 

 (4) In 1997 and 1998, coca leaves were also seized. Cocaine liquid was also seized in 1999. 17.90 kg of coca leaves were also seized in 2007. 

 (5) Cocaine and crack are reported together (however, there are usually very few, if any, seizures of crack). 

 (6) Data refer to seizures made by the Customs and the National Service for Combating Organized Crime (NACOC) from the Ministry of Interior. 0,947 kg of coca leaves were also seized in 2006 and 0.336 kg in 2007.  

 (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. 

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

 (9) 0.112 kg of coca leaves were also seized in 2007.
