Is clonazepam (Klonopin, Rivotril) a Schedule II med? I found the complete list in California law but it might be different than federal law.
(Even if it isn't federally it may well be sched II soon in California - there is a lot of paranoia being stirred up around here lately.)

For meds that require an Rx according to U.S. law, does U.S. law require that the Rx be from a U.S. doctor? I though it could be from one in Mexico.

However, in California law (health and safety code, section 11350), in the case of 'Schedule I or II' substances or "any controlled substance classified in Schedule III, IV, or V which is a narcotic drug", requires the Rx to be from a "physician, dentist, podiatrist, or veterinarian licensed to practice in this state".

So if you are from another state and your Rx is for Ritalin or another Schedule II med, don't cross the border from CA!
Physicians are licensed by state, right? So your doctor in Chicago or wherever probably isn't licensed to practice in California. I just realized that if this is so, then you could be arrested for merely setting foot in California if you bring your Ritalin with you. Probably wouldn't happen, but you never know what the police or highway patrol might do if they see it in your posession. Mainly shows how ridiculous and complicated this is. Maybe AZ, TX, etc. have more reasonable laws.
