Drug Crime Charges in Chula Vista
In California, there are strict laws in place against the possession, trafficking, and sale of illegal controlled substances. When a person is found to be engaging in any of these activities with any illegal drugs or non-prescribed prescription medications, he or she will be arrested and charged for a drug offense.
Drug crime charges are dependent on the type and amount of drug that was involved in the crime. The California Health and Safety Code separates the types of drugs into five classifications, or schedules, in order of their severity. In each category, there are several types and amounts of drugs that are similarly punished.
The drug schedules and some of the most common drugs under each category include:
- Schedule I drugs: certain opiates, heroin, marijuana, ecstasy, LSD, MDMA, bath salts, GHB, mescaline, and psilocybin
- Schedule II drugs: morphine, hydrocodone, oxycodone, raw opium, opium poppy, Adderall, and Ritalin
- Schedule III drugs: codeine, ketamine, testosterone, and anabolic steroids
- Schedule IV drugs: Xanax, Valium, Ambien, Ativan, Darvocet, Darvon, and Soma
