Orlando Prescription Drug Possession Defense Lawyers
Criminal Charges Related to Prescription Narcotics
Many people begin taking pharmaceutical drugs for legitimate reasons. Some pain medications are highly addictive, and patients find that they become dependent on these medications, even after using them for a short time.
At Moses and Rooth Attorneys at Law, in Orlando, Florida, we represent people facing a broad range of criminal charges, including drug trafficking, drug possession and other drug crimes. Many of the cases we handle relate to pharmaceutical drugs, including the drugs listed below:
- Klonopin (clonazepam)
Prescription drug arrests often begin with a vehicle stop. Police officers may search the vehicle in which pharmaceutical drugs are found in an incorrect prescription bottle. Prosecutors may bring charges even if you had a valid prescription and just happened to have switched bottles for your own convenience. The State of Florida is taking a hard stance regarding possessing prescription drugs without a valid prescription. The State of Florida has consistently modified the laws regarding the amount or weight of drugs in your possession to reach the trafficking amount.
Many people do not realize that, whether you buy drugs off the street or obtain them in a doctor’s office, the consequences of involvement with prescription narcotics are serious. Unfortunately, this is a lesson that is often learned too late.
Addiction in Prescription Drug Cases
Our attorneys fully understand the role that addiction can play in prescription drug cases. In order to continue to receive pharmaceutical drugs, many people engage in various illegal behaviors. These include doctor shopping — seeing many doctors to receive extra prescriptions — forging or falsifying prescriptions and taking pharmaceutical drugs prescribed to someone else.
