Question: Can I face drug charges for taking legally prescribed medications in Oklahoma?
Answer: Typically, you should not face charges for taking your legally prescribed medications. However, where most people run into trouble in this area is when they’re caught carrying their prescription medication outside of the prescription pill bottle. If you come into contact with an officer and he cannot establish that you have a valid prescription for the controlled substances that you are carrying, then you are subject to arrest for the illegal possession of a controlled dangerous substance. If that happens to you, you need to contact an attorney so this attorney can assist you in working to prevent the prosecutor’s office from filing charges against you.
