Drug Crimes in Springfield, IL

Understand the Forms of Illinois Drug Scheduling

Every state in the nation has its own laws regarding narcotics and other illegal or controlled substances, but most adhere closely to federal regulations. 720 ILCS 570 is known as the Illinois Controlled Substances Act, and explains exactly what substances and drug-related actions are illegal. If you are accused of a drug crime, it could involve any of the following Schedule I and II drugs:

  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Methamphetamines
  • PCP
  • Prescription painkillers – codeine, morphine, etc.

Many people who have been arrested for a drug offense were found with such small amounts of an illegal substance that they honestly did not know they were committing a serious violation.
