What Is Prescription Drug Crime?

The current opioid crisis has skewed the popular conversation about prescription drugs. While selling or purchasing opioids is illegal and very serious, prescription drug crimes cover many other behaviors as well.

Prescription drug crimes include:

  • Misuse or abuse of a prescribed substance like a painkiller
  • Selling or purchasing a prescribed drug such as Adderall
  • Altering or falsifying a prescription
  • Lying to obtain a prescribed substance or seeking multiple prescriptions (doctor shopping)
  • Driving when under the influence of a prescription drug

Depending on circumstances and the type of prescription drug involved, you may be facing felony charges. Your defense is pivotal.
