That of course in no way states that a law has actually been violated. See Nifong.

All you need do is show a statute that applies to the person to person transfer of a pill. You provide many words and no statutes. Because there aren't any?

I think you are cute too. In an immature sort of way. Brighter than the cop anyway. Though that is true of the ham sandwich - so don't let it go to your head.
Well thanks for the comparative compliment ... though I can't say the same about you.

Now, you have been given statutes that cover the issue ... and that's a wrap for your ham sandwich.

Just wondering? Is your friend that gave the drug a Doctor? Does your friend know about the medical history of the "patient"? Maybe she is a Pharmacist and knows how some drugs interact with others. Then again I am guessing she would not be in the office working if she had those careers.

Bottom line......no one can PROVE your friend gave her coworker a pill.

If the employer asks your friend about it.......she just needs to tell them she doesn't know what they are talking about, she never gave so and so a pill.

THE END

{And don't ever give a coworker a pill again, especially someone who names names and can't keep their mouth shut after someone does them a favor}

You guys are making a mountain out of a mole hill.

Yeah. If a prosecutor wants to charge you with practicing medicine without a license for providing a friend a pill, they will.

And yeah, tell me all about handing out non-prescription motion sickness pills at sea. (I live on a boat part of each year ... yeah my boat ... and have crossed oceans through typhoons.) Especially tell me if you are talking about off-shore where maritime law runs, not California state law.
What "we" were "working" was a broad discussion of possibilities ... that went beyond just the original set of circumstances. You engaged in broad generalizations when you denigrated the cop's experience. In courtroom parlance, that is referred to as "opening the door".

You have just manufactured a set of circumstances to try and worm your way back out of your hubris. I didn't describe giving a drunk a Snickers. I said " a friend" and nothing more. Regardless, no you wouldn't be liable for your drunk friend choking to death unless a jury determined that you somehow acted with careless or willful disregard for the friend's condition and could have foreseen the possibilities, etc etc etc ... which would require a hell of a lot more scenario "manufacturing" for the court than you just gave us to read here.

You don't know what you are talking about and you are obnoxiously aggressive in your errors.
With all due respect and appreciation for the people who came to this thread to answer my question, how in the world did we get from my idiot husband giving a pill to a coworker all the way to maritime law?

LOL...thanks for the chuckle. And, I am with you (oh and so is the attorney I ended up consulting) as the drug is not scheduled, unless my husband sold it, there was no law broken. Something to do with prescription or not, there is no law against possession for either party, so as the end result of the action did not result in a crime, apparently there is nothing in the middle...(husband has a prescription so no law broken) possession is not a crime, so no law broken there...so as it was unscheduled and no CA statute makes the particular drug in question criminal in any way, it would require a lot of hunting to find a crime.

The poster I was responding to made reference to the common occurrence of ship / boat captains handing out medication for seasick sailors ... which act on the high seas is immune to state / federal laws ... there is such a thing as International Maritime Law, which covers a great variety of actions on the high seas. He brought it up ... I pointed out it isn't related. Simple.

You can not even lose gracefully.

Any boat passing inside or near Catalina making the north to south passage is in California waters. They can dispense prescription drugs to those on board without violating CA law.

Get over it. You and the cop are simply hopelessly incorrect.
