Columbus OxyContin Lawyer

Defense for Prescription Drug Charges Involving OxyContin

OxyContin is a prescription painkiller commonly prescribed to relieve moderate to severe chronic pain. It is a time-release narcotic and highly addictive. OxyContin, sometimes referred to as Oxy, has also become a popular, albeit dangerous, recreational drug that is often illegally abused. Individuals interested in either dealing prescription drugs or personally abusing OxyContin, have been known to obtain the drug through illegal methods including prescription fraud.

As OxyContin is a schedule II drug, it is heavily monitored and regulated. The Federal Controlled Substance Act (CSA) prohibits the unauthorized production, distribution and sale of controlled substances. It also lays out specific prohibitions and penalties should drugs be distributed to minors or minors are used in the distribution of drugs. The sale or distribution of drugs near schools, interstates, highways and truck stops is also expressly forbidden as part of the CSA. For the purpose of the CSA, controlled substances include both illicit drugs and those classified as drugs for medical use.

In small quantities, the production, distribution or sale of OxyContin or other prescription drugs is handled by state and local officials. Should an individual be facing large quantity drug possession charges, or be found to be involved in drug trafficking via the interstate or internationally, federal law takes over and penalties will be severely increased. What could be a one-year jail term for small quantity OxyContin drug possession or distribution, may be a 10-year prison term for a federal offense.
