Addictive Prescription Medications
Pain relieving pharmaceuticals are extremely powerful and addictive. These medications are heavily regulated and can be difficult to legally obtain. Therefore, an illegal market has developed, causing a rise in the number of arrests and criminal charges associated with illegal possession of pain medications, including:
- Oxycodone, OxyContin, and Percocet
- Hydrocodone and Vicodin
- Opium, morphine, methadone and related drugs such as Dilaudid
- Amphetamines: Dexadrine and Desoxyn
- Tetrahydrocannabinoids (THC): Nabilone, Dronabilol, Marinol and Cesamet
- Benzodiazepines:Valium, Librium, Xanax, Rophynol
- Methylphenidates: Ritalin, Concerta and Attentin
Representation for Doctors and Pharmacists
Pharmaceuticals may only be distributed as authorized by law. The manner in which prescriptions are written by doctors and dispensed by pharmacists and pharmacies is set forth by government regulations. A physician who intentionally writes an illegal prescription or a pharmacist who unlawfully distributes pain medications are at risk of criminal charges, as well as a loss or suspension of their professional licenses.
If you are a doctor or a pharmacist who has discovered you are a person of interest in an illegal possession of pain medication case, or if you have been formally charged, you cannot afford to place your reputation and future at further risk.
