How many drug seizures were made by Jersey Customs in 2019 and the first 6 months of 2020?
Please provide information on the numbers of seizures per location (airport, harbours, post office, other) and if possible, the number of those seizures that included cannabis.

The increase in seizures at the Post Office in the first half of 2020 is believed to be as a direct result of Covid-related travel restrictions, an interruption in supply chains, and an increased focus by JCIS at the Post Office.

‘Other cannabis products’ includes vapes, sweets, herbal material and other products containing in excess of trace amounts of cannabinol.
