Spain's Annual Drug Control Budget, 2010
"Through the different Ministerial Departments, the Central Government has invested a Budget of 136,649,268 euros, a total of 24,215,000 euros thereof having come from the Fund of Assets Seized for Illicit drug Trafficking or other related Offenses. This Fund has been operating since 1996 and is replenished by the cash and the goods seized as a result of final, non-appealable court decisions in proceedings for drug trafficking and other related offenses.
"Of these 136,649,268 euros falling to the different Ministries, the Ministry of Health, Social Policy and Equality transferred to the Autonomous Communities and Autonomous Cities the amount of 28,296,000 euros to be managed directly thereby.
"In addition to this sum, the Autonomous Community Administrations have invested a total of 289,029,636 euros charged against their own budgets, thus meaning that, in all, the aforementioned Autonomous Community Administrations have managed 317,325,636 euros for carrying out programmes and activities related to the prevention, providing care, social reintegration and research in drug dependencies. All of which is in terms of the authorities which the Constitution and the central and autonomous community legislation attributes to the Autonomous Communities and Autonomous Cities in regard to drug dependencies.
"Thus, in all, the total amount invested by the Central Government and the Autonomous Communities and Autonomous Cities in carrying out the drug policies totalled 425,678,904 euros in 2010. This figure means a 1.62% decrease compared to the amount invested in 2009 (432,703,103 euros). This figure of 425,678,904 euros can be broken down as follows:
"- Budgeting contributed by the Central Government: 136,649,268 euros (this sum including 28,296,000 euros which the Central Government transferred to the Autonomous Communities and Autonomous Cities).
"- Budgeting contributed by the Autonomous Communities and Autonomous Cities: 289,029,636."
