Prescription drugs are considered a controlled substance. Without the proper prescription, you can face charges for a broad range of associated offences, including possession, trafficking, selling and distributing. You can face prescription drug charges for simply having any quantity of the substance on your person without a prescription.

The type of charge or charges you face will be determined by the details of the circumstances under which you were arrested. Prosecutors may accelerate the charges by adding on additional charges. This means you would likely face more potential jail time and other penalties.

Our lawyers draw upon extensive experience and legal understanding to negotiate with prosecutors and reduce the charges you face. For more information, call us today.
