Possession Of A Controlled Substance And The Abuse Of Prescription Drugs
With the abuse of prescription drugs on the rise throughout the United States, so is the overdose death rate from the abuse of these drugs. Regularly prescribed prescription drugs such as opioids like oxycontin, Vicodin and Percocet, stimulants like Adderall and Ritalin, as well as depressants like Ambien, Valium and Xanax, are commonly available as street drugs and can easily be abused and misused. In addition, distribution of a drug that results in an overdose death could be charged as a homicide if you were involved in the trafficking or distribution of that drug.
