Prescription drug offenses have risen dramatically in recent years across the nation, including here in California. Law enforcement officials and prosecutors have responded to the rise in prescription drug crimes by aggressively investigating and prosecuting individuals suspected of such crimes.
In the midst of this tempest, many good people have been brought into the fold of the criminal justice system. Many of these people never used drugs a day in their life before they became addicted to a pain killer that was legally prescribed by their doctor. Other people who have had a history with drug use have found a new temptation that carries with it a variety of medical risks, as well as potential legal pitfalls.
