Prescription Drug Crimes
Memphis Drug Attorney
Some of the many offenses involving prescription medication include "doctor shopping" in order to obtain prescriptions from multiple doctors under false pretenses or soliciting doctors to overprescribe in order to obtain excess amounts of medication. Another crime is the illegal selling or distributing of scheduled prescription drugs. Some of the prescription drugs involved in these various crimes include morphine derivatives such as codeine, morphine, and methadone. Some depressants such as barbiturates and sleep medications are also involved in these types of drug crimes.
If you are arrested and charged with illegal distribution of a prescription medication, or healthcare fraud for exploiting the system to obtain excess medication, then you could face severe penalties upon conviction. The penalties for criminal activity involving prescription drugs will depend on the schedule of drug, the amount involved, and other specifics of your case. If you are charged with felony possession of a Schedule II prescription drug, then you could face up to 12 years in prison if convicted.
