Understanding Ohio's Drug Classification System

The federal government classifies illegal drugs and controlled substances by “schedule.” This classification system is used to determine the severity of an offense and the possible sentence an offender may face. Ohio follows these same schedules, while making minor adjustments.

The following is a breakdown of the Ohio drug classification system:

  • Schedule I – Substances that are considered the most dangers, have a high risk of addiction or dependency, and no legitimate medical use. Drugs include Heroin, LSD, GHB, ecstasy, and marijuana.
  • Schedule II – Substances that have a high risk of abuse, but may have legitimate medical use. Drugs include cocaine, opium, methamphetamines, methadone, and amphetamines.
  • Schedule III – Substances that are slightly less dangerous than Schedule II drugs, but still have a moderate risk of abuse. Drugs include codeine, hydrocodone, testosterone, anabolic steroids, ketamine, and some depressants.
  • Schedule IV – Substances with a slight risk of addiction and dependency, as well as acceptable medical uses. Drugs include sedatives, clonazepam, and some tranquilizers.
  • Schedule V – Substances with very low risk of dependency, such as over-the-counter medication containing Codeine.

In Ohio, the penalties for each drug is categorized under a “bulk amount.” Each substance has a different bulk amount that determines the charge and potential sentence.

    "Patrick and his team are the only choice!"
    My husband was forced to defend himself at our home but that put him in jail. I first went with another lawyer, Mike Mills, who took my money and that was it. Feeling hopeless, I contacted Patrick’s team and they didn’t disappoint. Within 3 hours, Patrick was at jail speaking with my husband and a few days later, Patrick had him home. When you call the office, everyone helps you. You are not just another case to them; I know and experienced it. They are a team you want to be on your family’s side! Thank you Patrick and Laura and team - you are the best, thank you!

    "When he walks in, all the fear melts away and he comes out swinging."
    My family and I have used Patrick for different cases. A child custody as well as DUI. Initially you may feel scared and want to keep calling but in the end he has always proven that he is the best of the best. When he walks in, all the fear melts away and he comes out swinging. He knows what he's doing. Child custody WON! DUI best possible outcome! I wouldn't hire anyone but him. I highly recommend! Thanks Mr. Mulligan and staff!

    "Best Lawyer ever."
    Patrick Mulligan took on my case in May 1996 not knowing how things would go. My case being his first Big case. He saved my life. I have still to this day will always remember and be Thankful to him for trusting and believing in me. I was a mother of a daughter 19 months old who as killed by my boyfriend at the time. The state tried to prove me for child endangering and wanting me to serve 18 months in prison. Parick didnt know until that point what he had gotten into . Patrick did everything he could to prove I was a good mother. It was almost a year after my daughters life was taken. We went to trail and I stood on the stand with all my friends and Dr.'s. Patrick worked so hard for me and we won and here I am 15 years later . I found his web site and had to tell my story. Anyone who needs his help he will work as hard as he can for anyone he believs in. I'm so gald to see he is still in Cinti helping people. Thank you Patrick. I will talk to you soon.

    "I would recommend him to anybody."

    "Help in the Middle of the Night"
    Mr. Mulligan made all the difference in my case. Through his yellow page ad, I was able to reach him in the middle of the night, after my ex-wife had me falsely arrested for Domestic Violence Verbal. He was prompt in coming to my assistance. He went out of his way to help reach my family so that they could get me released from holding. He answered all my questions and walked me through the entire process. He was able to get the results I was hoping for at the pre-trial, so that we did not actually have to go through an actual trial. Mr. Mulligan exceeded all my expectations and I would recommend him to anyone who finds themselves in a similar unfortunate situation. He was a Godsend for me.
