Good morning,What you are describing are both criminal acts (theft of property and driving without a license/on a suspended licensed with knowledge). I would recommend that you report what happened to the police, and let them take a report. There's a possibility that this individual could abuse this medication and then get behind the wheel, endangering themselves and others.

Sure, how can I clarify?
Well, let me ask you this, what outcome would you like to see? I understand he is a friend, but he also stole from you and is driving on a suspended license.Do you just want your medication back? Nothing says you have to report your friend to the police -would he consider returning what he took from you if you demanded the return and threatened to go to the police?Here's what I see as a potential risk for you - he takes the medicine he stole from you, gets behind the wheels, and then injures someone, and you find yourself potentially caught up in a civil lawsuit as a defendant because you allowed him access to the medicine and didn't do anything after he got a hold of it. Not saying that would definitely happen, but certainly a risk.
You mention your parents are both attorneys - I'm sure they are both more than qualified to give you good advice as to how you should approach this.
