Most doctors now email prescriptions directly to the pharmacy, making it more difficult and more dangerous to obtain prescription meds for improper use. However, some people will go to several physicians or pain management clinics to obtain multiple prescriptions or resort to street dealers or theft.
No matter the quantity (a few pills) or the drug of choice (OxyContin, Vicodin, ecstasy, codeine syrup or “lean”), it is still a felony to illegally obtain or distribute controlled substances.
We have experience with all types of prescription drug offenses, including:
- Possession of prescription drugs without a valid prescription
- Doctor shopping and other prescription fraud
- Sale, distribution or theft of controlled substances
- Unlawfully prescribing or dispensing medications
