Although every state regulates the possession of controlled dangerous substances – also known as CDS – each state differs in its classification and definition of CDS and the punishment for illegal drug possession. Utah classifies commonly known drugs like cocaine, and heroin as CDS, but it also classifies the compounds of which they are made. If you get caught with a controlled substance in Farmington, you need to enlist the services of Joseph Jardine and his team of drug possession attorneys in Farmington.
How The State Of Utah Categorizes Cds
Utah divides CDS into five categories called “Schedules.” Schedule I lists the most dangerous drugs, drugs which are more likely to be abused and cause addiction, and have zero medical value. Schedules II, III, IV, and V decrease in danger and probability of abuse. They also increase in recognized medical value.
