Accused of Prescription Fraud?

Most people think of illegal drugs when they hear the term, “drug crime.” In reality, a drug crime can involve prescription medications too. One such crime is prescription fraud, which occurs when a person uses deceit or fraud to obtain prescription medication. These cases typically involve drugs like OxyContin, morphine, Valium, Vicodin, and Xanax.
