    A controlled substance is a substance that is only obtained under a prescription from a doctor and it is to be taken and used by the person who holds that prescription.

    The DEA classifies medications that have addictive potential as controlled level 1 to 5, you can easily look up all the drugs in each level.

    It's a drug with a legitimate purpose but it could also be abused so only certain people have access legally.
