Defense Against Prescription Drug Crimes Charges
In recent years, there has been an undeniable, rapid rise in prescription drug use and illegal trafficking in pharmaceuticals. In recognition of this serious problem, Georgia has passed several new laws and enforcement of prescription drug laws has become a very high priority for both state and federal law enforcement.
Most Charges Involving Painkillers And Other Prescription Drugs Are Felonies
The majority of frequently abused prescription drugs, including opiate painkillers such as OxyContin (oxycodone), are Schedule II controlled substances under Georgia law. This means that illegal possession of even a few pills often results in a felony charge. If you or a loved one has been charged with possession of drugs without a prescription, selling prescription drugs, prescription fraud or any similar offense, your need for an experienced criminal defense lawyer is clear and urgent.
