Schedule II
controlled substances are drugs that have a high potential for abuse and have a currently accepted medical use in treatment. Schedule II substances include such drugs as COCAINE and AMPHETAMINE (Speed).

Schedule III controlled substances are substances that have a potential for abuse less than the substances in Schedules I and II. These substances have a currently accepted medical use in treatment. This schedule of drugs includes various stimulants and depressants as well as certain anabolic steroids.
