Controlled Substances Classes
What is the Controlled Substances Act?
The Controlled Substances Act, or CSA, is a statute that became law in 1970 during the Nixon administration. It is part of the Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act of 1970. The CSA introduced a system of ranking and classification of drugs on a scale of five “schedules.” Drugs are placed on different schedules by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) based on their usefulness in medicine, their potential for abuse, and their likelihood of abuse and dependence for people who use them.
Before 1970, drug enforcement and control laws were quite varied and decentralized. The purpose of the Controlled Substances Act was to consolidate all of these laws into a single system that could be amended and built upon in the future.
