AB335,1,3 1An Act to renumber 961.14 (2) (a), (ae), (cd), (cg), (dg), (er), (eu), (ey), (ne), (qs),
2(rj), (tg) and (xm); to amend 961.01 (12g); and to create 961.14 (2) (nd) of the
3statutes; relating to: fentanyl analogs and providing a criminal penalty.
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 bill adds fentanyl analogs to the
synthetic opiates category under Schedule I and reorganizes some substances from
the general synthetic opiates 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 felony.
