Prescription Sales & Fraud Defense in Fort Pierce, Florida

The unlawful sale, purchase, or use of a prescription drug are some of the fastest growing drug crimes in the State of Florida.  Where as in the past most drug crimes centered around illegal drugs and narcotics, people are now turning to prescription drugs, whether for personal use or for manufacturing, sale or distribution.  Some of the most commonly abused prescription drugs include:

  • Oxycodone (OxyContin)
  • Propoxyphene (Darvon)
  • Hydrocodone (Vicodin)
  • Hydromorphone (Dilaudid)
  • Meperidine (Demerol)
  • Diphenoxylate (Lomotil)
  • Pentobarbital sodium (Nembutal)
  • Diazepam (Valium)
  • Alprazolam (Xanax)
  • Dextroamphetamine (Dexedrine)
  • Methylphenidate (Ritalin)

Judges, prosecutors, and law enforcement officials take prescription drug crimes very seriously, and anyone found unlawfully selling these or any other type of prescription drug can expect to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
