It happens too often. People on legal prescription drugs run out of medications and can’t get their doctor to refill the prescription. They become addicted to their legally prescribed pain medication. The horrors of addiction lead to stolen prescription blanks and unauthorized attainment of medication.
Will I Go to Jail for Drug Fraud or Possession of a Controlled Substance?
