In the eyes of the law, prescription drug crimes are often just as serious as crimes involving narcotics. Most prescription drugs are safe and legal when they are used by the person whom they were described to. However, Florida has recently suffered an epidemic of prescription medication abuse. Law enforcement and prosecutors throughout Florida are cracking down on crimes which involve the illegal possession of prescription drugs or blank prescription forms.
At the Law Office of Kevin F. Moot, our Weston drug crime attorney works hard on behalf of our clients to avoid a conviction. We are dedicated to keeping you out of prison and protecting your rights and freedom.
The reason it is illegal to possess a blank prescription form is because of the frequency which prescription drugs are abused. It is frequent practice for individuals who are addicted to painkillers to find and steal a blank prescription pad in other to unlawfully fill forged prescriptions. Even if there is no evidence that the form was used or that any prescriptions were filled, it is a first degree misdemeanor to possess a blank prescription form.
Prosecutors across the state are vigorously investigating individuals for unlawful possession and trafficking in prescription drugs. If you have been charged with a first degree misdemeanor for possession of a blank prescription form, you could face up to a year in jail and a steep fine. It is vital that you speak with a qualified Weston criminal defense lawyer right away to discuss your options.
