Defense Lawyer For Prescription Drug Charges
Minnesota, like many other states, is cracking down on abuse of opioid prescription pain relievers such as fentanyl and Vicodin. These drugs now cause more deaths in the United States than car accidents.
A person taking these drugs for treatment of a pain condition can easily become addicted. Once the prescription runs out, the person may turn to illegal sources of the drug. Many people who are arrested for illegal possession of a prescription drug don’t think the consequences will be as severe as it would be for possession of a street drug such as heroin. This is not the case. You need a lawyer as soon as possible, even if you have never been in trouble with the law before.

- Carrying a prescription drug in a container other than its prescription bottle
- Carrying an expired prescription
- Doctor shopping to obtain a prescription
- Giving your prescription to someone else
The consequences of a conviction can include prison time and a damaging criminal record.
