Substances with widely accepted medical use and low addiction risk fit into Schedule 5, and while they cannot be legally purchased in bulk or some highly concentrated forms, they are often widely available. Schedule 4 drugs have more potential for abuse, however still are used as medicine. Drugs in this category include Valium and similar substances.
