Indiana Drug Schedules
The state of Indiana, like many other states, organizes controlled dangerous substances into a series of schedules for prosecution purposes. The schedule of the substance you are found in possession of will determine the nature of the penalties your charges could lead to.
Drug schedules in Indiana include:
Schedule V – These drugs have the lowest potential for abuse and physical or psychological dependence, along with widely accepted medical use. These include medications with small amounts of narcotic drugs.
Schedule IV – These drugs have a slightly elevated potential for abuse compared to Schedule V substances, but limited dependence risk. Examples include diazepam.
Schedule III – These drugs have a moderate potential for abuse, and a low risk of physical dependence, but have an accepted medical use. Examples include LSD and anabolic steroids.
Schedule II – These drugs have a high potential for abuse, but have some accepted medical uses under supervision. Examples include morphine and opium.
Schedule I – These drugs have the highest potential for addiction and abuse and no accepted medical use. Examples include heroin and certain opiates.
Penalties for Drug Possession
Penalties for drug possession can vary widely based on a number of factors, including the type of substance you are found with, the amount of it, and any proven intent in doing so (such as possession for sale or drug trafficking). Drug crimes at their lowest could be a Class A misdemeanor, but could also be a Class A, B, C, or D felony.
