All controlled substances are organized into five separate schedules; Schedule one contains the drugs that are considered the be the most unaccepted and have the highest potential for abuse; As such, the penalties associated with schedule one drug violations are the most stringent. As you move down to schedule five, the drugs have a lower potential for abuse and the penalties associated with their use begins to decrease.
Although these schedules are strictly adhered to, there are ways to have your sentence modified. The state attorney may move the sentencing court to reduce or suspend the sentence if a person who is convicted of a violation provides substantial assistance in the identification, arrest, or conviction of any of his or her accomplices, accessories, coconspirators, or principals or of any other person engaged in trafficking in controlled substances. The judge may reduce or suspend your sentence if he or she finds that you rendered substantial assistance.
