§ 90‑90.  Schedule II controlled substances.

This schedule includes the controlled substances listed or to be listedby whatever official name, common or usual name, chemical name, or trade namedesignated. In determining that a substance comes within this schedule, theCommission shall find: a high potential for abuse; currently accepted medicaluse in the United States, or currently accepted medical use with severerestrictions; and the abuse of the substance may lead to severe psychic orphysical dependence. The following controlled substances are included in thisschedule:
