"Schedule II" Drugs in Nevada (21 USC § 812)
Explained by Las Vegas Defense Lawyers

Federal law divides drugs into five separate categories called “schedules.”1 Schedule II drugs are considered the second most dangerous class of drugs for the following reasons:

  1. Schedule II drugs have a high potential for abuse; and
  2. Schedule II drugs have a currently accepted medical use in treatment in the U.S. with severe restrictions; and
  3. Abuse of Schedule II drugs may lead to severe psychological or physical dependence.

Consequently, Nevada drug crimes involving Schedule II drugs carry extremely harsh penalties.
