Prescription drugs. We’ve all filled a prescription at one time or another for an antibiotic, painkiller, or another drug. And while filling a prescription may be a regular occurrence when you are sick or injured, it should not be overlooked that many prescription drugs are addictive and render themselves easy to abuse.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Prescription Drug Crimes

FAQ: What are the penalties for possession of prescription drugs federally?

Under the federal Controlled Substances Act (CSA), all federally regulated controlled dangerous substances (CDS) are classified into five schedules. The schedules are classified according to a substance’s approved medical use, its potential for abuse, the drug’s safety, and its dependence liability. Possession, use, or distribution of a CDS is prohibited under federal law, and penalties for possession of prescription drugs depend upon the specific drug and its classification in the federal drug schedule. For answers to your questions about the penalties for possession of prescription drugs federally, arrange for a free, confidential consultation with The Law Office of John B. Brennan.

FAQ: How long can a prescription for a controlled dangerous substance (CDS) be held before it cannot be legally filled by the pharmacy?

A prescription for a controlled dangerous substance (CDS) must be filed within 30 days of the date on which the prescription was written. After 30 days, the prescription is invalid.
