Pennsylvania Drug Crimes Laws

Both federal and Pennsylvania law categorize controlled substances into five different “schedules.” These drugs are placed into the various schedules based on their potential for abuse as well as their therapeutic value. The less therapeutic value and the greater the potential for abuse a drug has, the higher the schedule it will be placed in. Naturally, committing a crime that involves higher schedule drugs will carry more severe penalties, which may include thousands of dollars in fines, mandatory rehabilitation, and lengthy prison sentences.

The drugs and their corresponding schedules are listed below:

  • Schedule V: Certain prescription drugs, such as cough suppressants which carry specific amounts of codeine. This is the least severe schedule of drugs.
  • Schedule IV: Soma, Klonopin, Valium, and Xanax.
  • Schedule III: Vicodin, Ketamine, some types of barbiturates, and anabolic steroids.
  • Schedule II: Oxycodone, methamphetamines, and cocaine.
  • Schedule I: MDMA, LSD, marijuana, and heroin. This is the most severe schedule of drugs.
