Although most people associate drug crimes with illegal narcotics, there are criminal offenses that involve prescription drugs as well. Prescription drugs are controlled substances as well, regulated by the government and therefore subject to criminal charges and penalties if a person is found guilty of
possessing, distributing or
trafficking prescription drugs without lawful authority.
Prescription fraud is a crime that involves unlawfully obtaining a prescription drug by committing fraud or misrepresentation. It may be committed in different ways, by altering or forging prescription slips, getting prescriptions from multiple doctors, or stealing blank prescription slips.
