Indiana Drug Schedules

In Indiana, a classification system is used to categorize and define all drugs and controlled substances according to their abuse potential and addictive nature. These classifications are called “schedules”, and were developed by Federal government and Indiana legislature. They range in number, from 1 to 5, and can also be influenced by other factors, including the level of acceptance for medical treatment, physical dependence, and psychological dependence.

Although every drug is categorized in a schedule, Indiana Code allows the Indiana State Board of Pharmacy to suggest modifications and deletions to the state legislature at any time. This means cocaine may be a Schedule II drug now, but next year, it could change without warning. To learn everything you need to know about your drug charge and Indiana’s current drug schedules, call criminal attorney David E. Lewis at 317-636-7514 right away.
