A Strong Defense Against Prescription Drug Charges
Prescription drugs — such as OxyContin, Percocet and hydrocodone — are highly addictive. Many people find themselves reliant on these drugs after an injury or illness. When the prescription runs out, some turn to illegal methods — such as doctor shopping — to obtain them. In Tennessee, it is illegal to possess or sell prescription medications without a valid prescription.
If caught illegally possessing or distributing prescription drugs, you will be charged with a drug crime and subject to the same penalties as other street drugs, like cocaine or methamphetamines.
If you are a doctor or pharmacist, accusations of prescription drug fraud not only expose you to criminal liability, they can destroy your professional reputation and put your livelihood in jeopardy.
