What are Prescription Drug Crimes in Maryland?
Prescription drug charges involve possession of dangerous, narcotic drugs that are obtained by fraud. Doctors and others who write phony scrips and those who use the scrips can be charged. Prosecutors often have more sympathy for prescription drugs charges because people usually form their addictions while taking the drugs according to prescription.
Many people want to explain why they have prescription drugs in their possession. Anything you tell the police can only make the situation worse.
Prosecutors take prescription drug crimes somewhat less seriously than other drug crimes, but the second charge means a mandatory prison sentence. Do not take chances even if this is your first arrest for prescription drugs. Call for a free consultation.
