Abstract

The Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act of 1970 consolidated the provisions of the previous laws into one act. The Act classifies controlled substances in one of five possible categories. The classification is based on the drug’s potential for abuse as well as its physiological and psychological effects. The penalties imposed for the various offenses involving these controlled substances are dictated by the schedule under which it is listed.
