Types of Prescription Drug Offenses
Illegal possession of prescription drugs or prescription drug fraud may
be conducted in many ways, from altering prescriptions, forging prescriptions,
impersonating medical professionals to gain unauthorized prescriptions,
to prescribing a controlled substance for no medical reason, through illegal
internet sales and stolen prescription drugs, to "doctor shopping,"
whereby prescription drugs are obtained through numerous, independent
sources without their knowledge of one another.
Common prescription drugs that are illegally obtained include Vicodin,
Xanax, codeine, hydrocodone, and oxycodone. Many of these drugs are governed
by the Texas Controlled Substances Act, which determine the penalties
you will face if convicted of a crime involving them.
