Illicit Drug Data Report 2010/11 has been released, and as always it's a fascinating read. The report contains information from all Australian jurisdictions on total numbers of seizures and arrests for various types of substances, and information on trends in police detection of various drugs. While the trends only reflect police activity and not actual drug use trends, there are some interesting results from this years report including: record seizures of steroids by Australian Customs, increasing numbers of clandestine labs detected, and the highest number of cannabis arrests in a decade.
