Virginia Schedule 1 Drugs

Fairfax Criminal Lawyer Lists: Virginia Schedule I Drugs

Fairfax Criminal Lawyers

In Virginia, the classification of a  particular illicit substance under Virginia law is an important aspect any skilled Virginia criminal lawyer should analyze and explain to his or her client or potential client when explaining the severity of the offense.

Even though we do strive to update our website when laws change, sometimes a law could feasibly change and some time could pass before an update is made. Please do not rely on any internet source for legal advice. Instead, to truly understand the nature of a criminal charge – defenses, mitigating factors, potential consequences, and best course(s) of action – you should consult a legal professional who will need to know details about your unique case. If your charge is in northern Virginia, local Fairfax criminal lawyers may be willing to help and provide you with a consultation at no charge.

Some of the drugs listed as “Schedule 1” or, “Schedule I,” are well-known by the population at large (not as a result of usage, but due to literary and theatrical references), including drugs such as heroin, LSD, many opiates and opium derivatives, some stimulants and depressants, and a long list of other compounds. Others are relatively less-known and obscure. For a list of Schedule II, Schedule III, Schedule IV, Schedule V, or Schedule VI substances, please visit the our Virginia Defense Firm website pages covering these drugs.
