ABSTRACT
The article discusses the highlights of the Supreme Court case "Gonzales v. Oregon." The dispute involves controlled substances in Schedule II of the Controlled Substances Act. The legislation aims to combat drug abuse and control the use of substance that is used by medical practitioners for physician-assisted-suicide or euthanasia. However, Oregon's law permits prescriptions of lethal drug overdoses upon the request of terminally ill patients.
