Wisconsin residents could be charged with a misdemeanor or felony in allegations involving Schedule 2 drugs such as Vicodin, cocaine, methadone and other substances. A charge is not a conviction, so penalties for schedule 2 drug possession do not occur unless convicted of a crime, not just charged.
