There Are Many Reasons People Abuse Prescription Drugs

Many people believe that prescription drugs are not as dangerous as other illegal drugs. That is simply not true.

A majority of prescription drugs that end up being the subject of illegal activity are pain medications such as codeine, OxyContin and Vicodin. However, illegal prescription drug possession can involve any FDA regulated drug, including Adderall, Ritalin, Valium, or anabolic steroids.

Addiction is often a serious risk to legally prescribed drugs. Unfortunately, when prescriptions run out, people often resort to obtaining the drugs illegally through forged prescriptions or simply going outside the pharmacy system.

Conviction for Illegal Possession of Prescription Drugs Could Mean Jail Time

In Arizona, conviction for the possession, possession with intent to sell, or distribution of illegal drugs is punished harshly. Simply being in illegal possession of prescription drugs is a felony offense that could result in a criminal record, fines, and jail time.

For students, including both in-state and out-of-state students at Arizona State or the community/junior colleges, conviction can result in fewer career options and limit your eligibility for financial aid.

If you are being investigated or have been arrested for prescription forgery, illegal possession, or illegal distribution of prescription drugs, get advice from an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately.
