I have asked Willie Pretswell, Interim Chief Executive of the Scottish Prison Service, to respond. His response is as follows:

The SPS do not determine the type or category of drugs recovered. Substances recovered are sent to the police.

It is believed that the principal drug types recovered within Scottish Prisons are Heroin, Cocaine, Cannabis, and unlawfully held prescription medication.

Does this answer the above question?
