Phoenix Prescription Fraud Lawyers

What Is Prescription Fraud?

Along with all the common types of illegal substances, such as marijuana or narcotics, a person can also become addicted to prescription medications. There are many causes of such an addiction. A doctor could prescribe a dosage that is too high or prescribe the drug over too long of a period. Should a person become addicted to a prescription-only drug, things can become problematic once their prescription ends. Prescription fraud is a means of obtaining prescriptions illegally for addiction purposes.

Prescription Fraud Penalties in Arizona

Prescription fraud comes in several forms. First of all, a doctor can be guilty of prescription fraud by writing a prescription for a patient for recreational use instead of medicinal purposes. This drug crime is also committed when a person falsifies information in order to obtain a prescription, or by forging a prescription in order to obtain the drugs. Penalties for these offenses are listed in the A.R.S. §13-3406.

Illegal possession, use, manufacture or administration of a prescription drug is a class 1 misdemeanor and will result in a six-month prison sentence and a $1,000 fine. Possession for sale, distribution, transportation for sale, or importation of prescription drugs for sale or transfer is a class 6 felony and will incur a prison sentence of six months to 1.5 years and a $1,000 fine.
