The Home Office have published figures detailing the number of drug offences committed by young people.

Last year 13,621 boys under 17 were arrested, compared to 1,402 girls in the same age range.

In the same year there were 15,990 boys and 1,782 girls between the age of 18 and 20 who were arrested.
