We began this series because prescription drug abuse and prosecution have been on the rise both in Arkansas and across the country for a number of years. Frequently the persons who are accused of committing a crime and those who were legally prescribed medication by their physician following a painful medical condition. These people rarely had the intention of becoming addicted to the medication they were prescribed and frequently struggle to handle severe chronic pain. Unfortunately, being convicted of prescription drug abuse can negatively affect a number of life areas including your freedom, your future ability to find employment, your ability to find housing, and can even place your custody of your children in danger. Taking prescription drug charges seriously is the first step to prevent your life from becoming completely upended.
