  • Drug schedules, which refer to controlled drugs classified according to their high or low risk of abuse. There are five schedules  ̶̶  subdivided into groups A and B  ̶̶   where schedule I drugs are the highest abuse risk (opioids, LSD, heroin), and schedule V the lowest (codeine, diazepam, non-narcotic analgesics).
  • Penalty groups, which are organized according to the quantity of drug possessed and purpose of possession (manufacture/distribution/selling).

The law considers other aggravations, such as manufacture in the presence of a child and possession of drug paraphernalia, including large amounts of money. Penalties may range from $10,000 to $250,000 in fines, jail time, life or 99 years in prison. You cannot risk facing your charges without qualified and experienced legal assistance.
