Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
First, if contacted by police, you should make NO STATEMENT. Making a statement only provides potential evidence with which a conviction may be sought.
Second, it would be very difficult at this stage for a prosecutor to make a case. I assume that the pills provided were not in a prescription bottle with your name on it. As a result, they could have come from any number of sources or even been taken without your consent. Even if your friend points to you as a source, the case would be defendable and likely weak for the prosecution.
Third, under Washington Statutes, passing prescription medications to a person who has no prescription is a felony offense under Washington Statutes 69.50. It is a class B felony and upon conviction may be imprisoned for not more than ten years.
You should consult with an attorney in your area, though, until contacted by police, retaining may not be necessary.
