Prescription Drug Abuse Offense In Los Angeles

When it comes to prescription medications, a lot of times doctors are prescribing prescription drugs to people who they should know under the circumstances, shouldn't be getting any prescription drugs. Sometimes they should have like a cross-check system to see if they're getting the same prescription drugs and abusing those drugs from other doctors.

A lot of times, people will go into different locations and pick up multiple prescriptions and even doctors will not examine individuals and still give them prescription medications. This is when people abuse a prescription medication and really do themselves a disservice – not only physically but mentally.

If the courts find out about it, they will arrest and charge the person with some serious drug crimes. They never like anybody messing around with prescriptions medications because the problem with that is that these medications are controlled by the FDA and they don't want people to manipulate them. So, they take this very seriously. It's a very sacred thing to get a prescription medication, obviously follow the prescription properly.

Effective Defense Strategies

So, if you're charged with either being a doctor who is unlawfully administering prescription medications – not properly treating patients, not properly cross-checking whether or not this patient has received other prescription medications from other doctors, not examining a particular patient – you can give me a call.

Another thing that I think is important for prosecutors and judges when it comes to these prescription medication abuse cases in Los Angeles is to show why the particular individual is abusing prescription meds. A lot of times the prosecutors and even the judges realize the reason people do this type of stuff and they are understanding about it as long as there's a justifiable reason.

If on the flip side, someone's taking the prescription medication and selling it to other people that starts to become a very dangerous situation. Somebody could get the wrong prescription, overdose, and obviously the government has a big interest in controlling where these prescription medications are going.

First off, they get a piece of the action with taxes and money that's paid. They also have a regulatory agency to make sure people aren't abusing prescription meds and make sure that they're not being improperly dispensed by doctors or taken by people in multiple locations. This is a common thing.
