Drug Schedules Chart

Schedule I – Drugs that are deemed to be the most addictive and dangerous. They often have no medical use.
Schedule II - Drugs with a high risk of addiction, but they may have medical use.
Schedule III - Less dangerous, but have a risk of abuse and include some depressants and steroids.
Schedule IV - Slight risk of dependency and are usually prescribed for medical conditions.
Schedule V - Low risk for addiction and include medications.
Schedule VI- almost no recognized medical use and low risk for dependency.

A person with a schedule I drug charge will usually receive a harsher punishment than someone with a schedule III drug charge. It’s important to note that someone possessing a Schedule III drug with no prescription can be charged with a drug offense.
