For financial and other reasons some local police agencies are not able to report arrest data to the Uniform Crime Reporting Program. The table above ranks the reporting agencies with the most marijuana arrests by the arrest rate for marijuana possession.

The population listing in the table refers to the coverage population of the local police agency. University police stations, many divisions of the state police (SP), and some other agencies do not have applicable coverage populations that are reported along with arrest data reported to the UCR program. Consequently arrest rates per 100,000 population can not be calculated and reported for these agencies and they are not included in the above rankings.

Other drug crimes refers to drug-related offenses that to no include marijuana. These include sales and possession offenses involving the following catefories of drugs:

Opiates/Cocaine: This category includes opium, cocaine, and their derivatives. Opiate derivatives include, for example, morphine, heroin, and codeine. Cocaine derivative include crack cocaine.

Synthetic Narcotics: This category includes manufactured narcotics and includes, for example, Demerol , methadone, and Oxycontin.
