Types of Drugs and Controlled Substances

Dallas Drug Attorney

Drug crimes are often very serious, and if you are arrested and charged with a drug crime, then you could face extremely harsh penalties for a conviction of this crime. Depending on the amount, and the type of drug that you are charged with committing a crime, you could face more or less severe penalties.

It is important for you to know the various types of drugs as well as the penalties associated with them. Illegal drugs include a variety of different controlled substances that are each divided into five categories called schedules, each based on drug addictiveness, accepted medical use, and other factors.

Schedule I

These drugs have a high potential for abuse, are highly addictive, and have no accepted medical use:

Schedule II

Schedule III

These drugs have some potential for abuse, but they do have some widely accepted medical uses:

  • Tylenol with Codeine
  • Various anabolic steroids

Schedules IV and V

  • Valium
