Controlled substances- are drugs that have some potential for abuse or dependence. These drugs are regulated by the federal controlled substances Act (CSA) – this law helps the US Government fight against the abuse of these drugs. The CSA divides controlled substance drugs into five categories called schedules.

Federal Analog Act-is a section of the United States Controlled Substances act passed in 1986 which allowed any chemical "substantially similar" to a controlled substance listed in Schedule I or II to be treated as if it were also listed in those schedules.
