Establishes new Class B crime. The current average cost of incarcerating one individual for a single year is $55,203.

The additional workload associated with the minimal number of new felony cases filed in the court system does not require additional funding at this time.
The collection of additional fine revenue associated with adding tianeptine as a Schedule W drug will increase General Fund and dedicated revenue by minor amounts.
