Illegal Possession of Prescription Drugs

During the past twenty years, there have been significant advances in the development of pharmaceutical drugs to address a number of health concerns. When used as directed by a physician, they can be tremendously beneficial for one's health. Unfortunately, some of these drugs also have effects that have made them popular on the black market. As a consequence, carrying certain prescription drugs with you lead to being arrested and charged with possession-related offenses.

A conviction on drug-related offenses can permanently tarnish your reputation - which may be the least of your troubles. Potential incarceration, the imposition of fines, and the revocation of professional licensure make the stakes too high for you to take any chances. Contact Austin drug possession defense lawyer Ian Inglis at (512) 472-1950 to consult with a skilled and experienced attorney about your case.

Potential Legal Complications

For a person who is in need of prescription medication more than once throughout the day, it is often necessary to carry the drug at all times. But there is a risk of being arrested and charged with a possession-related offense if you are not cautious about the documentation and medications which you retain on your person. Some potential prescription drug problems include:

  • Carrying excessive amounts of the medication
  • Carrying unlabeled prescriptions
  • Failing to present evidence that a prescription drug is properly yours

Circumstances like these could lead to charges of prescription drug fraud or even illegal trafficking. If you regularly carry prescription drugs with you, it is very important to understand your rights and responsibilities so you can avoid legal complications.
