Prescription Drug Crimes Carry Substantial Penalties
Individuals accused of drug crimes involving prescription drugs and other medications are usually charged with committing one of two illegal actions:
- Illegally obtaining a prescription painkiller like OxyContin, oxycodone, Vicodin or Xanax. These controlled substances are usually obtained illegally either for sale or because the accused faces an addiction problem.
- Illegally obtaining pseudoephedrine. Pseudoephedrine can be bought legally over the counter, but the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) tracks people’s purchases of this substance. If too much is purchased, DEA agents will suspect the purchaser of being involved in the production of methamphetamines.
