Fairfax Criminal Lawyer Lists: Virginia Schedule II Drugs
In most drug cases in Virginia, the “Schedule” each specific illegal substance belongs to will prove to be one of the main inquiries which a Virginia criminal attorney will address when performing a case evaluation or analysis. It should also be considered by your Virginia or local Fairfax Criminal Defense Lawyer when formulating a “theory” of the case (the phrase our Fairfax Defense Law Firm uses to refer to a case’s primary argument and strategic approach.
Virginia Schedule II drugs i include many prescriptions: oxycodone and hydrocodone to name a couple. These may also be known to some people by their brand names, Percocet and Vicodin respectively. Some Virginia Schedule II drugs may surprise readers and researchers: opium extracts are Schedule II, but so is the relatively mild opiate, “Codeine” (Codeine is used in some prescription cough syrups).
Never rely on any internet source when preparing for a criminal trial or hearing. Your rights should matter more: consult a legal professional in-person. Our Fairfax-based, northern Virginia-serving criminal defense firm offers free consultations. If charged in Northern Virginia, take advantage of this. We will explain your case’s weaknesses, strengths, potential outcomes based on our professional experience and opinion, as well as our flat fee quote at the conclusion of the initial meeting.
