Inadvertent distribution of Prescription Pills
Your best friend has knee pain. It’s in the middle of the night and no doctor’s office is open except for the emergency room. You decided to give him your prescription painkillers to help to manage his pain. Well, you just committed distribution of controlled substance. In most states, this is a felony. The law makes no distinction between selling your prescription and giving away a single pill. If you transfer possession of a controlled substance to another person, then you are guilty of distribution of drugs. So, never offer to share your prescription pills with anymore. Never let anyone else carry your prescription with your name on it. Want more information give us a call.
