Aggressively Protecting Your Rights

A Strong Defense Against Prescription Drug Charges

It is amazing how misinformed some people are about drugs. Many don’t know there are laws against misuse of prescription pills. “I have a doctor’s prescription,” they say. Unfortunately, it is illegal to have too many, to be driving under the influence, or to have acquired them in an illegal way. And ignorance of the law is not a defense.

A lot of people are in serious pain for medical reasons not arising from addiction, but eventually they do become dependent on painkillers. The government comes down very hard on doctors and clinics that prescribe these drugs. Individual users are at significant risk of conviction and incarceration, or loss of other liberties.
