These records don't really compare because they are different kinds or records. Asking for a comparison is rather like asking for a comparison between giraffes and koala bears: they are both animal, both in Australia and both attracted to trees but that's all the comparison that can be made.

Having said that, The Department of Drug Enforcement--a department within the U.S. Bureau of Justice--keeps records of drug use by population while the Bureau of justice keeps records of crimes associated with drug use.
