Prescription Drugs

There are many ways to obtain prescription drugs without a valid prescription. Millions of people have done so at some point. Painkillers such as Vicodin and OxyContin are the most common drugs obtained in this way. A high dosage has effects similar to recreational drugs.

Under California and federal law, you may be charged with either obtaining, using or distributing prescription drugs without a valid prescription. Below are some acts for which people are prosecuted. Our law firm defends people charged with any such crime.

  • Obtaining a doctor's prescription pad and forging a signature
  • Obtaining drugs from someone with a valid prescription
  • Producing and using a counterfeit prescription pad

Many people feel forced to do so because they have become addicted. Doctors and pharmacists can also be charged with illegal trafficking in prescription drugs.

Prosecutors can charge prescription fraud or prescription forgery as misdemeanors or felonies. You could in addition be charged with DUID/driving under the influence of drugs, or drug possession.
