The Controlled Substances Act of Title 21 Food and Drug Administration U.S. Code 13 for Drug Abuse Prevention and Control is the national regulation, which the states adhere to. According to the 1986 Subsection of. Pub. L. 99-570 to "knowingly or intentionally to possess a controlled substance" not lawfully obtained from a doctor could lead to a year in prison or a $5,000 fine, or both on a first conviction. The penalty for a second offense doubles the penalties.

Prescription sharing includes not only the actual sharing of a prescription drug, but also the theft and unauthorized sale of prescription drugs. Theft can include a family member taking the prescriptions from another member of the household or taking prescriptions from a stranger. The sale of prescription drugs that have been stolen is also prohibited by federal and state law. The National Drug Intelligence Center (NDIC), a division of the U.S. Justice Department, reports that the most common means for individuals over age 12 to acquire prescriptions for non-medical uses is from a family member.

It's just plain dumb to take a drug that has been prescribed for someone else. Each person's body chemistry is different. That's why doctors ask you if you're allergic to anything before prescribing. Seriously, people in this country can be so stupid when it comes to messing with drugs, legal or illegal.

This is a technical discussion about the difference between a scheduled drug and one which is not.

It is not about sharing or not sharing drugs.

No? Didn't the OP ask about whether it was illegal to share prescription medication? I thought she did.

Follow the thread. Sharing a prescription drug is NOT illegal in CA.

Sharing a controlled Substance is illegal

Not all prescription drugs are controlled substances

What is your problem? Where did you come up with the notion I posted in regards to your recent comments? I was responding to the OP's initial post.

I know sharing a controlled substance is illegal. And while some prescription drugs may not be a controlled substance they still should not be shared. In case you missed it the first time, I'll repeat it.

It's just plain dumb to take a drug that has been prescribed for someone else. Each person's body chemistry is different. That's why doctors ask you if you're allergic to anything before prescribing.

Good grief, stop trying to control what people post on a thread.

I have no intention of controlling what is posted here.

If you bothered to read the thread you would have discovered that effectively everyone here agrees it is not a good idea to share a drug even if legal. That includes the OP.

Popping in at the end with that which has already been well discussed does not advance the conversation.

It does however raise concerns about the intellect of the poster.

Really? You're going to insult me just because I post after you've all discussed the issue? I'm not allowed to comment on the original post?

Must be nice to be so perfect.

Yawn,,,, there is a polite way to ask... more palatable on the internet than a blatant demand

Ill let you do a little research so you can be better informed... but I will help you out

Please see California Business and Professions codes 4320 thru 4343,, and Health and Safety code starting with 11150 H&S

If you obtain a prescription drug knowing that you are going to give it to another party you are, technically, violating the law, If you are giving a prescription drug issued to you to another you are violating the law

I made legal arrests for this all the time,, and the persons were successfully prosecuted... regularly

Please be careful with internet legal advice... I have found that usually people get in trouble

Scenario

Legal traffic stop, legal search, prescription drugs found, legal statements made ....drugs given to another
...
Excuse... The internet said "its ok"

the reality... it isn't going to be debated on the side of the road

Net result

Arrest.. prosecution or diversion..

Why risk giving your drugs to another person?.. let them get their own


Now lets look at the medical side.. something which I am professionally aware of as well (EMT-P)
I cannot give anyone any drug except under very controlled and specific circumstances.. after extensive training with checks and balances,, I cannot diagnose a disease (because I am not an MD)...

You want people to self dispense.. are you aware of synergy, allergic reactions, contraindications, therapeutic effect, threshold, administration parameters

If a person willfully gives another their own drug and that person has a reaction in anyway the issuer is completely legally liable ..up to and including murder

Again.. as to the original poster.. if its a fairly benign drug.. it most likely wont ever be a problem

But... as I always say to myself..

My house payment is attached to every one of my actions.... and this is what I teach new students as well


Have a nice day
