The U.S. Controlled Substances Act sets the criteria for what constitute criminal offenses in the manufacture, possession, sale, and use of drugs. The severity of the punishment for a drug crime depends on the type of substance, the quantity, the intent of possession, and local, state and federal laws.
If you or someone you know has been arrested for a drug-related crime in Oregon, you already understand the severity of the circumstances.

Understanding Oregon Controlled Substances Laws

- Prescription drugs dispensed or consumed without a valid prescription.
- Altered over-the-counter drugs.
- Other illegal substances.
