The Complex Nature Of CDS Laws
CDS laws involve Schedule I, Schedule II, Schedule III, Schedule IV and Schedule V substances. The laws also include penalties for actual physical control (APS). Penalties for control or possession of these substances vary depending on which schedule covers the drug in question, whether it’s a first or subsequent offense, and the individual circumstances surrounding the arrest. The penalties significantly increase if the alleged buying or possession of the drug occurs in a school, public park or other recreation area. Additional convictions in a school area may even result in triple the penalties.
