Drugs are classified according to their common effects and actions on the mind and body. Click on the following links for more information.

Examples include: LSD, PCP, MDMA ( Ecstasy ), marijuana, mescaline, and psilocybin.

They affect regions of the brain that are responsible for coordination, thought processes, hearing, and sight. Hallucinogens have powerful mind-altering effects and can change how the brain perceives time, everyday reality, and the surrounding environment. Hallucinogens are drugs which cause altered perception and feeling. They can cause people to hear voices, see things, and feel sensations that do not exist.

As with many other drugs, opiates possess very high addictive potential.

Controlled Substances Act - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Act also served as the national implementing legislation for the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs. The legislation created five Schedules (classifications).

Under 21 U.S.C. The CSA bears many resemblances to these Conventions. The Congressional findings in 21 USC §§ 801(7), 801a(2), and 801a(3) state that a major purpose of the CSA is to "enable the United States to meet all of its obligations" under international treaties. § 811 of the CSA, that authority is the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS). Under Article 3 of the Single Convention and Article 2 of the Convention on Psychotropic Substances, the World Health Organization is that authority.
