California Narcotics Seizure Statistics

CALIFORNIA -- The most recent statistics show drug agents seize more than a quarter million pounds of marijuana each year in California.

The Drug Enforcement Agency says its agents confiscated more than 350,000 pounds of pot and more than 10,000 lbs of cocaine in 2003.

Methamphetamine is third on the list of narcotics seized, but agents call it is the state's top drug threat.

They also seized 300 pounds of heroin and 136,000 tablets of ecstasy, but agents say the use of so-called "club drugs," such as ecstasy, are on the decline.
