If you have been charged with any type of drug crime, obtain a Sacramento criminal defense lawyer right away! Controlled substances are divided into five different schedules based on their risk for abuse, addiction and medical use. The more serious drugs are categorized in schedule I and the less serious are in schedule V. Schedule I drugs have a very high potential for abuse and have no accepted medical use in the United States, these drugs may include the following among many others:

  • Heroin
  • LSD
  • Marijuana
  • Peyote
  • Ecstasy

Schedule II drugs also have a very high potential for abuse and have very little accepted medical use, these drugs may include the following among others:

  • Morphine
  • Opium
  • Methamphetamines
  • Cocaine

These are controlled substances, meaning that there are great restrictions on what you can do with these drugs, including possessing them. Possession of schedule I drugs can be an extremely serious offense depending on the amount in your possession. Possession with intent to distribute will incur even harsher penalties if you are convicted.
Sale of controlled substances is illegal and will incur more serious penalties than possession.
