Federal Drug Crime Schedules



Tracey Wood & Associates
Wisconsin Criminal Defense Lawyers



Wisconsin's drug laws mirror federal laws, but the penalties differ; some are less harsh and more flexible under the state's sentencing schemes than under the federal sentencing guidelines; others are more severe. A conviction of simple possession, for example may receive a sentence under state law of drug treatment rather than jail time, and probation may be available to first-time offenders for even the more serious crimes.

The most severe federal drug charges place tremendous legal restrictions and assess severe penalties for crimes involving Schedule I and II drugs as set forth by federal statutes.

SCHEDULE I

Schedule I drugs are those with a high potential for abuse, with an absence of any medical use, that are dangerous to the user even under medical supervision. The more commonly recognized types of these drugs are: heroin, LSD, mescaline, marijuana, and peyote.

SCHEDULE II

Schedule II drugs have a high potential for abuse and a high potential for severe psychological or physical dependency, but are currently accepted for medical use. Schedule II drugs include opium, cocaine, methadone, amphetamines, and methamphetamines.

SCHEDULE III

Schedule III drugs, by comparison have less potential for abuse than Schedule II drugs, a potential for moderate psychological or physical dependency, and an accepted medical use. The most well known Schedule III drug is naline, which is used to detect narcotic use.

SCHEDULE IV

Schedule IV drugs have less potential for abuse than Schedule III drugs, they have a limited potential for dependency, and they are accepted in medical treatment. These drugs include tranquilizers, meprobamate, chloral hydrate, most drugs that cause sleep, and sedatives.

SCHEDULE V

Schedule V drugs, which have a low potential for abuse, limited risk for dependency, and accepted medical uses, include drugs with small amounts of codeine or other narcotics in them.
