Thanks for your question. Here is the answer to your question.

Ohio Revised Code 2925.22 (R.C. 2925.22) criminalizes procuring the administration of, a prescription for, or the dispensing of a dangerous drug (namely prescribed drugs of abuse). Also, possessing an uncompleted preprinted prescription blank used for writing a prescription is a felony.

If the drug involved is a Schedule I or II drug, it is a 4th degree felony under Ohio law which carries a prison sentence of not less than 6 months nor more than 18 months and a fine up to $5,000.
