When an individual is found to be in possession of dangerous prescription drugs for the purpose of distributing the drugs or using them due to an addiction to the drug, there are serious consequences in the state of Arizona. The law has changed in recent years and those who are found to be in possession of the drug only for their own use will face treatment programs as opposed to a jail or prison sentence. However, these treatment programs are extremely stringent and the requirements often include hundreds of hours of community service, steep fines and random drug testing as part of the alternative sentence. When an individual is facing prescription drug charges for any prescription drug that was illegally acquired including Vicodin, Percocet, OxyContin , Ritalin, Xanax or other dangerous psychiatric drug, it is a serious legal problem and requires the assistance of a Phoenix criminal defense lawyer.

Prescription Drugs and Arizona Law

You could find that you are in serious legal trouble if caught with such drugs. Often the charges can include other offenses such as prescription forgery or "doctor shopping" for the use of false prescriptions or other matters. These medical drugs are often highly addictive and individuals who are involved with prescription drug offenses need assistance with the addiction. The legal team at Knowles Law Firm, PLC understands the difficulty involved with addiction to prescription drugs and will fight to help the client get the treatment that they need rather than a punishment.

When the amount of the prescription drug in possession is above a threshold amount laid out in law, the charges will be more serious, and are usually felony charges. The prosecutor will consider that the intention was to distribute the drugs and the charges will be related to the intent to distribute illegal prescription drugs. This is an extremely serious matter and requires a skilled defense lawyer from Knowles Law Firm, PLC in order to fight aggressively to defend the case. Contact Knowles Law Firm, PLC if you have been arrested and charged with any drug crime related to possession or distribution of illegal prescription drugs.
