Prescription Drug Charges: A High-Stakes Matter
In recent years, law enforcement agencies across the country have issued crackdowns on prescription drug offenses. In 2014, the South Carolina Prescription Monitoring Program was signed into law to further enforce the state’s prescription drug laws.
If you have been charged with a crime involving prescription drugs like Xanax, OxyContin, Vicodin or Valium, the right attorney can make the difference between moving on with your life and spending time in prison.
