Bay Area Defense Lawyer Handling Prescription Drug Possession Charges

Many people use prescription drugs to treat anxiety, depression, pain, sleep disorders and a host of other medical and psychological problems. And, many people are unaware that possessing some medicines without a doctor's prescription is a crime. They are also unaware that if the drug is ingested and affects an ability to drive, even if prescribed, affects their ability to drive, it is also a crime to drive while on the drug.

Many drug arrests for pain pills, anti-anxiety pills and other prescription drugs involve people who simply did not know they were doing anything wrong.
