Question: How are penalties determined for drug crime convictions by schedule in Wisconsin?

Answer: The higher schedules, starting with Schedule I, have the higher penalties associated with them because those drugs are considered to be more problematic in the sense of little to no legitimate medical uses and higher risk of dependency and abuse. So there are higher penalties for either possession or sale of the Schedule I drugs versus lower penalties for possession or sale of a Schedule V drug.
