Prescription Drug Offenses
Many people are prescribed prescription drugs after illness or surgery, or for anxiety or depression. Substances such as Xanax, hydrocodone and other narcotics are highly addictive. When refills run out, many people turn to illegal methods to obtain these medications.
If you or a loved one has been charged with the illegal possession, sale or distribution of prescription drugs, you are facing serious felony charges. Under the law, these medications are treated on par with controlled substances such as heroin, cocaine and methamphetamines. You need lawyers with the experience and skills required to adequately defend against your charges. You need the Kaylor Law Group.
Polk County’s Criminal Defense Team
In Florida, possessing or selling medications without a prescription is a felony. It is also illegal to obtain these drugs through fraudulent methods such as doctor shopping, filling a prescription at multiple pharmacies or forging a prescription.
Illegally possessing prescription medications is treated as possession of a controlled substance. If convicted, you face up to $10,000 in fines and up to 15 years in prison. People also often sell or give away their unused prescription medicines to friends and family members. This is illegal and can result in drug trafficking or distribution charges.
