Schedule V Drug Possession in Wisconsin

Heavy Fines & Penalties in Wisconsin Law

Schedule 5 Substances are defined by the DEA and State of Wisconsin as having “lower potential for abuse than Schedule IV and consist of preparations containing limited quantities of certain narcotics.”

Drugs in this schedule may have no risk of abuse by themselves, but are still controlled because they can be used to manufacture more serious narcotics, including methamphetamine. Unauthorized possession of Schedule 5 drugs, especially in large quantities, can result in a class I felony conviction. A class I felony is punishable by a fine of up to $10,000 and imprisonment of up to 3 ½ years.
