Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Current law classifies controlled substances in one of five schedules. The
classification is based on 1) whether there is a currently accepted medical use for the
controlled substance; 2) the potential of the controlled substance for abuse; and 3) the
nature of the dependence that the controlled substance may produce. Schedule I
controlled substances are those that have a high potential for abuse and dependence
and no currently accepted medical use. This substitute amendment adds fentanyl
analogs that are not already scheduled to the synthetic opioids category under
Schedule I and reorganizes some substances from the general synthetic opioids
category to the specific fentanyl analog category. Like other Schedule I substances,
a person who possesses a fentanyl analog is guilty of a Class I felony and a person
who manufactures, distributes, or delivers a fentanyl analog is guilty of a Class E
