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 considered to be a drug can be:
- Illegally prescribed or abuse of prescription drugs
- Altered over-the-counter drugs
- Other illegal substances
The severity of the punishment for drug crimes depends on the type of substance, the quantity, the intent of possession, and local, state and federal laws.
