What Are Schedule II Drugs?
Drugs are separated into categories or schedules by their addictiveness, with Schedule I being the highest, and Schedule II drugs being the next highest.
Schedule II drugs are known to be abused often and risk psychological or physical dependency. These drugs include codeine, oxycodone, and morphine, barbiturates and amphetamines. Each of these has medical properties and are prescribed legally, too. You have to go to a doctor each time you need a refill.
If you are charged with illegal possession, selling, or manufacturing a Schedule II drug, you are likely to be charged with a felony.
GA DUI Drugs Penalties
