Schedule 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 Drugs in Highlands Ranch and Castle Rock: Colorado Schedule of Drugs

In Highlands Ranch and Castle Rock, a drug can be classified as a Schedule I drug, Schedule II drug, Schedule III drug, Schedule IV drug or Schedule V drug. Below are the ways drugs and controlled substances are classified in Colorado:

Schedule I Drugs, C.R.S. 18-18-203

Schedule I drugs are those drugs which have a high potential for abuse, no accepted medical use and no accepted safety for use under medical supervision. Common examples of Schedule I drugs include Heroin and Ecstasy. Punishment / sentences for involvement with Schedule 1 drugs are the most strict of all sentencing for Schedule drugs.

Schedule II Drugs, C.R.S. 18-18-204

Schedule II drugs are considered drugs which have a high potential for abuse, some accepted medical use, and drugs which are considered highly addictive. Some examples of Schedule II drugs include Cocaine and Methamphetamine. Punishment / sentences for use, possession, or the manufacture of Schedule 2 drugs is strict.

Schedule III Drugs, C.R.S. 18-18-205

Schedule III drugs are considered drugs which have a potential for abuse less than Schedule I or Schedule II substances, but have accepted medical use and drugs which are not as addictive as Schedule II drugs. Some examples of Schedule III drugs include Vicodin or Anabolic Steroids. Punishment and sentences for involvement with Schedule 3 drugs is less severe, provided you are not involved in selling, distribution or manufacturing.

Schedule IV Drugs, C.R.S. 18-18-206

Schedule IV drugs are considered drugs which have a lower potential for abuse than Schedule III drugs, have accepted medical use, and are less addictive than Schedule III drugs. Some examples of Schedule IV drugs include Flunitrazepam. Fortunately, the punishment and sentence for possession of these schedule 4 illegal substances are more reasonable than those above.

Schedule V Drugs, C.R.S. 18-18-207

Schedule V drugs are drugs which have a lower potential for abuse than Schedule IV drugs, have accepted medical use and are less addictive than Schedule IV drugs. Some examples of Schedule V drugs include certain amounts of codeine or opium. Class 5 controlled substances involve the least severe criminal sanctions.
