Drug Crimes in California

In California, drug crimes can be charged as either an infraction, misdemeanor, or a felony. The specific charges and penalties are determined by the type of nature of the drug crime, the type of substance involved, and previous criminal history. Under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA), drugs are divided into five schedules or categories.

The schedule of the drug is determined by several factors, including:

  • Its potential for abuse
  • Its medical use
  • Its risk of dependency

Schedule I substances, such as heroin and LSD, have a high potential for abuse and addiction and no accepted medical use. Schedule V substances, like cough medicines with codeine, have a low potential for abuse and dependency, and they are recognized as being useful in medical treatment.
