Attorney Michael J. Liston in the District of Massachusetts has written an article showing that oxycodone “actual” equivalence is not based on “actual” weight at all, and produces guidelines ranges that are disproportionate to those for other drugs including more dangerous drugs such as heroin.  See Part D.  It also touches on similar problems that may come with the classification of hydrocodone from Schedule III to Schedule II on October 6, 2014.  See Part E.
