West Palm Beach Prescription Drug Fraud Lawyer
Prescription drug diversion, the recreational use of prescription drugs – as well as the illegal buying and selling of these drugs – has become an epidemic in the United States. In recent years, the sale and recreational use of prescription painkillers, while in decline, is still a problem. Methods in obtaining illegal prescription drugs are plentiful and varied. Young people easily could steal prescription drugs from their parents’ or grandparents’ homes and sell them in school.
- Drugs are routinely stolen from pharmacies.
- Prescriptions can be altered or copied and prescription pads stolen from doctors’ offices.
Virtually any prescription drug can be purchased via thousands of websites with no few or no questions asked. “Pharming” – grabbing a handful of a variety of prescription drugs and taking some or all of them at once – has been gaining popularity among high school- and college-age students in recent years.
