Illegal Possession Of Prescription Drugs
The seriousness of a prescription drug crime cannot be understated. Just because a drug is a non-narcotic (such as meth, crack or cocaine), possession without a valid prescription is a crime. They can range from a misdemeanor to a felony charge. For example, if you do not have a valid prescription, a conviction in possessing these drugs can result in a two-year driver’s license suspension.
Prescription drugs can include:
- Oxycodone (OxyContin)
- Hydrocodone (Vicodin)
