Opioids are increasingly in the news headlines with many serious and unfortunate descriptions attached like “fatal” and “overdose.” But exactly what are opioids?

Opioids as a general term include many controlled substances that work by attaching to the body’s opiate receptors, which regulate pain. The powerful affect opioid compounds have on the nervous system produces widespread numbness. In the brain they work to release endorphins, creating euphoria among users.

Pennsylvania Opioid Law
Pennsylvania drug laws adopt the federal classification system of drugs under the U.S. Controlled Substances Act in addition to the Commonwealth’s Act. This means if you are accused of an offense, you could be charged with federal and state drug crimes.

Opioids and other controlled substances are listed under five “schedules,” where Schedule I substances are the most dangerous and Schedule V are considered the least dangerous drugs.

If you are facing opioid drug charges in Pennsylvania, it is critical that you hire an experienced criminal defense lawyer who has successfully defended against drug offenses and who can focus all of their energies on your case.
