Over the years, controlled substance laws have increased and changed to accommodate a growing number of offenses. Oregon Revised Statutes Chapter 475 contains Oregon's Controlled Substances Act prohibiting the possession, manufacture, and delivery of controlled substances. These substances range from illegal drugs such as marijuana, heroin, and cocaine, to prescription-only substances such as hydrocodone and oxycodone. The penalties for each offense vary depending on the crime and the quantity of illegal drugs involved.
