Yo creo que tienes que dejarlas como "drogas de la clase A


Explanation:
y "drogas de la clase B" porque es una clasificación que depende del tipo de drogas. Mira estas páginas:

http://area51.upsu.plym.ac.uk/~harl/legal.html
Class A
Common substances:
Cocaine, crack, heroin (diamorphine), LSD, ecstasy, morphine, opium, psilocin (as found in 'magic mushrooms'), cannabis oil
Less common substances:
Cocoa leaf, dextromoramide (e.g. Palfium), dipipanone, fentanyl, mescaline, methadone, pethidine, PCP, all parts of the seeds of the opium poppy (after mowing), DMT

Maximum Penalties:
Possession (Magistrates Court) 6 months/5,000 pounds sterling fine or both
Possession (Crown Court) 7 years/unlimited fine or both
Supply (Magistrates Court) 6 months/5,000 pounds sterling fine or both
Supply (Crown Court) life/unlimited fine or both

Class B
Common substances:
Amphetamine, barbiturates, cannabis and cannabis resin (inc. herbal cannabis). Less common substances:
Codeine, dexamphetamine, dihydrocodeine (DF-118), methaqualone, methylamphetamine, methylphenidate (Ritalin), phenmet-razine (Filon),

Class B drugs become Class A when prepared for injection.

Maximum Penalties:

Possession (Crown Court) 5 years/unlimited fine or both
Supply (Magistrates Court) 6 months/5,000 pounds sterling fine or both

Class C
Benzodiazepine tranquillisers, (e.g. Temazepam), dextropropoxyphene (Distalgesic, Doloxene) plus other mild amphetamine type stimulants

Maximum Penalties:
Possession (Magistrates Court) 3 months/200 pounds sterling fine or both
Possession (Crown Court) 2 years/unlimited fine or both
Supply (Magistrates Court) 3 months/500 pounds sterling fine or both
Supply (Crown Court) 5 years/unlimited fine or both

Porque dependiendo de que categoría sea la droga, la pena imputada varía.

Saludos afectuosos. Maria ;o)
