Prescription Drug Charges
Prescription drugs can be just as addictive as illegal controlled substances. The slide from legal use to illegal use can be quick and unintentional. Surprisingly, Virginia often treats the abuse of prescription drugs more severely than it treats the possession of serious drugs such as cocaine, heroin and methamphetamines.
If you or a loved one has been charged with a prescription drug offense, whether it’s a misdemeanor or felony involving mere possession or distribution, you should talk to a lawyer right away. You should not talk to the police about any drug case until you have obtained proper legal advice; law enforcement will always try to gather evidence against a suspect.
