Maryland Prescription Drug Fraud Lawyers

Skilled Drug Crime Defense Attorneys

More than 50% of Americans take at least one prescription drug, according to the most recent statistics available from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Prescription drugs are marketed and advertised to the public as miracles that will get rid of all their medical problems. It is no surprise then that more and more people – young and old – are becoming more and more attracted and addicted to prescription medications, whose use is at an all-time high in the United States.

Falsifying Prescriptions

Illegal possession of prescription drugs or forging or falsifying a prescription to illegally obtain these drugs is a serious crime in Maryland. If you have been charged with crimes involving prescription medications such as Vicodin, Oxycontin, Ritalin, or Xanax, count on Alpert Schreyer to defend you.

We can fight charges of any prescription drug-related crime such as:

  • Forging or falsifying prescriptions
  • Possession of drugs without a valid prescription
  • Illegal transportation or distribution of prescription drugs
  • Large scale trafficking of prescription drugs
  • Marketing prescription drugs illegally over the Internet
  • Prescription fraud by physicians

Even the most “normal” people who have no prior criminal record can end up becoming addicted to prescription drugs and face serious charges. If you are in such a situation, a knowledgeable Maryland criminal defense attorney can help you navigate the complex legal system.

Potential Penalties

The consequences for possessing illegal prescription drugs can be just as serious as possessing a narcotic or controlled substance. You could face jail or prison time, steep fines, and lengthy probation. Many prosecutors strongly believe that the vigorous pursuit and prosecution of prescription drug cases is an important part of the nation’s war on drugs. In such an environment, even an innocent purchase of drugs on the Internet to quell a migraine or help you sleep better can be misconstrued or distorted, resulting in serious criminal drug possession charges.
