Sharing prescription medications: A violation of the law

What happens if you share prescription medications?

If you distribute drugs to people who do not have a prescription, you can get into deep trouble with the law.

Team doctors face scrutiny before changes in drug transportation

Don't ignore a prescription drug violation

Taking prescription drugs is something that should only be done under a doctor's supervision.
