The U.S. Controlled Substances Act sets the criteria for what constitutes criminal offenses in the manufacture, possession, sale and abuse of drugs. According to state and federal laws, a controlled substance can be:

  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Methamphetamines
  • Barbiturates
  • Marijuana
  • Illegally prescribed or abuse of prescription drugs
  • Altered over-the-counter drugs
  • Other illegal substances

The severity of the punishment for an arrest of this type depends on the type of substance, the quantity, the intent of possession, and local, state and federal laws.
