Florida statutes also make it illegal to “acquire or obtain . . . possession of a controlled substance by misrepresentation, fraud, forgery, deception, or subterfuge.” This means that it is a criminal act to attempt to pass off a false or forged prescription in order to acquire a controlled substance.You may be charged with crimes here in Florida.If you are questioned by the police decline to give a statement and ask for a lawyer.You have fifth amendment rights not to say anything here, knowing they would use this against you.
Since the prescription was not filled as altered you may avoid prosecution but be real careful who you talk to and admit to nothing.
I appreciate the chance to help you today and wish you the best here.
If you can positive rate 5 stars when we are done it is much appreciated.
