Understanding these statistics

The Drug Analysis Service (DAS) analyzes suspected illegal drugs seized by Canadian law enforcement agencies. These statistics provide some information about the substances identified in samples.

They do not represent the total number of substances seized by law enforcement. They should not be used to estimate the number or types of drugs that may be available on the street. As well, a single sample may contain more than one substance.
