Question

1. The number of possession of cannabis offences and people proceeded against for possession of cannabis since the start of April 2009, with figures provided for each month. This data should show both the number of offences, and the "outcomes" (e.g. charge, caution etc) 2. The number of possession of cannabis offences and people proceeded against for possession of cannabis since the start of April 2009, broken down by ethnicity of suspect, with figures provided for each financial year (including 2014/15 year-to-date). There is no need to show "outcomes" data. I would like the police force to apply a consistent measurement for the entire timeframe covered. My assumption is that the police force will use data extracted under Home Office code 092/61 - "Having possession of a controlled drug Class B - Cannabis and cannabis resin/Cannabinol/Cannabinol derivatives". However, if the police force uses a different measurement that provides the requested data, that will suffice - consistency of measurement is the key
