Abstract: In FY 2009 and FY 2010 61 percent of the funds were allocated to activities supporting law enforcement; 11 percent were allocated to planning, evaluation, and technology improvement; 9 percent to prosecution and court; 6 percent to both drug treatment and enforcement, and prevention and education; 5 percent to corrections and community corrections; and 1 percent to crime victim and witness programs. Key findings on drug task force activities funded during the period July 2010 to June 2011 include the following: by weight, marijuana was the most seized drug nationally; marijuana was the only drug reported as being seized by every State that reported such seizures; by weight, the majority of all drugs were seized in large seizures (busts), with this being especially true for cocaine; and the majority of drug task forces reporting drug seizure data were located in the Southwest (17 percent), the Great Lakes (22 percent), and the Southeast (23 percent) regions.
