While many people assume that drugs which can be obtained legally with a prescription would not warrant as serious of criminal penalties as more serious “hard” narcotics like meth and cocaine, that often isn’t the case. Vicodin, OxyContin, Morphine, and other prescription substances which are possessed without a valid prescription are viewed extremely harshly under Clinton drug laws, and intending to sell or deliver these drugs or counterfeit prescription forms is even more serious.

The severity of penalties you face will depend greatly on the schedule within which the substance you are accused of possessing is listed. The most serious charges result in cases involving Schedule 1 or Schedule 2 narcotics, which include GHB, oxycodone, morphine, hydrocodone, opium, methadone, and many amphetamines. Schedule 3 includes substances such as lower potency morphine, acetaminophen hydrocodone combinations, and steroids. Xanax and Valium, among other drugs, are included in Schedule 4. Codeine medications and ephedrine-containing cough medicines fall into Schedule 5.
