Yes, in short. You are purchasing a controlled drug. You are actually supposed to present your driver license to illustrate that you are the person to which the prescription has been issued. If you cannot show your license with the prescription matching, you must present a medical power of attorney for that person. If or when these things do not happen, you can get in serious trouble with the DEA. Moreover, going across state lines in complicates matters further as other federal trafficking statutes then come into play as well.

There are even issues of you being in possession of a controlled substance without a prescription that can cause great issues - criminally speaking.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
