Diligent Legal Help With Criminal Charges Related to Prescription Narcotics
In the fairly recent past, the phrase "drug charges" most often referred to illegal drugs. Now, with the increase in the use of and addiction to prescription medications, drug charges often refer to prescription drug fraud.
Prescription drug fraud can result from numerous illegal activities. Frequent acts that can lead to prescription fraud charges include:
- Changing a legal prescription to increase the amount of drugs received
- Altering prescription pads so that the prescription is illegally verified
- Stealing drugs and prescription pads
- Doctor shopping and pharmacy shopping
Doctors and pharmacists can also face prescription drug fraud charges if they overly prescribe drugs or pass out drugs with no prescription.
