Prescription narcotics are not to be confused with aspirin, vitamins or candy. They are controlled substances with strictly enforced restrictions in the eyes of the law. An overdose of a painkiller can cause heart attack or death. Lesser doses cause the person taking them to be “under the influence,” impaired and liable for a DUI arrest if detected.
Prescription drugs are legal only for the person whose name is on the prescription and may be transported only in the original container. If you have been charged with a criminal offense involving illegal possession, purchase, sale or distribution of any of the following narcotics, you are strongly encouraged to contact an aggressive, experienced and knowledgeable defense attorney.
You may be a health care professional, a consumer or an addict — regardless of who you are, if you have been arrested and charged for possessing or distributing prescription drugs outside legally-acceptable channels (through a doctor’s prescription and a pharmacy), you have an urgent need for a skilled, knowledgeable and aggressive criminal defense. Your legal situation and the potential consequences are the same as those for someone charged with drug crimes involving heroin, cocaine or other street drugs.
