It is considered an Opiate Narcotic, so it should be considered a controlled substance all over the U.S.

Tramadol is not a controlled substance in Virginia. In Jan 2010 legislation was proposed to make it a schedule IV controlled substance but the bill died in committee.

Vernon, "should be" and "is" are two separate issues. Tramadol is NOT a scheduled drug on the federal level (regulated by DEA). It is currently controlled (scheduled) in only 5 states.

I'm not someone taking a guess or repeating what so and so told me. Here's a link regarding the original enquiry:
