The increase in the use of prescription medications throughout the U.S. has also led to an increase in the number of arrests, charges and convictions for prescription drug crimes. At Rosenblum Schwartz & Fry, our highly experienced attorneys are known for aggressively defending against all drug charges including those related to prescription drugs.
Individuals accused of drug crimes involving prescription drugs and other medications are typically charged with committing one of two illegal actions:
- Illegally obtaining a prescription painkiller like OxyContin, oxycodone, Vicodin or Xanax. These controlled substances are usually obtained illegally either for sale or because the accused faces an addiction problem.
- Illegally obtaining Pseudoephedrine. While Pseudoephedrine can be bought legally over the counter, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) tracks purchases of this substance. If an individual is flagged as purchasing too many products that contain Pseudoephedrine, DEA agents may suspect the purchaser of being involved in the production of methamphetamines.
