Federal and state law enforcement agencies continue to devote vast amounts of resources to the prosecution of drug-related crimes. Drug charges can lead to imprisonment, fines, and the loss of civil liberties; and can affect a person’s driving privileges and professional licenses. The social stigma of a drug conviction often has a significant negative impact on a person’s life, career, and future plans.
Federal and state drug laws prohibit a wide gamut of conduct. Over the last decade, there has been a distinct shift in enforcement of those laws. Prescription opioids like Vicodin, Oxycontin, and Percocet have become more readily available – both legally and illegally – as have Aderall, Ritalin, and other medications for treatment of ADD and ADHD. As a result, authorities have expanded their focus to include not only crimes related to illicit drugs but also crimes involving the unauthorized possession and distribution of prescription medications.
