Man, some of you people need chill the freak out.

Some poster said that my post said that ALL prescriptions are controlled.

Those people need to learn to read AND comprehend. I NEVER said ALL prescriptions were controlled. Amazing how people just jump on the ban wagon.

The state that I previously lived in(NY), YES, Police Officers CAN question prescription drugs in your possession(in plain view). They can ask if the script is yours and examine the bottle to see if the label is on it. They can check to see if the pills in the bottle match the label on bottle.

Someone else said that you can only have in your possession your prescriptions or that of your spouse. That may be true here, but not true in all states. As long as there is a name on the bottle, as long as the pills in the bottle match the label and as long as they are not stolen, it's perfectly legal to possess someone else's scripts. Some people are not able to pick up there own script and have friends, neighbors and relatives pick them up for them.


And no, I'm not citing law(to the rude people). Find it yourself.

If I had questions about the legalities of what took place during a traffic stop, I'd contact an attorney as opposed to an anonymous group of people (self included) on the Internet who spout replies without consideration to the validity of the response. Why waste your time?

Case in point. Where, EXACTLY, did I say ALL scripts were controlled?

Yeah, people really do spout replies without validity, huh?

Here is another smart one. Read AND comprehend. There is that "ALL" again. Try reading MY post, instead of feeding off other posters' false information.

I NEVER SAID THAT **ALL** SCRIPTS WERE CONTROLLED!!!

For crying out loud!

MIKE:
Maybe you should reread your own post's!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here's a paste and copy:

Holy sentence Batman! Yes, they can. ...

Holy sentence Batman!

Yes, they can. Prescriptions are a controlled substance.

IMO, if asked if they were yours, I would answer yes(if they are, of coarse).

Beyond that? Like why are...


Now of course you didn't use the word "ALL" but u did use the word Prescriptions meaning anything requiring a script was a control, if that's not what you meant then everyone here totally missed your point, plus why in the world would anyone in NC/Charlotte care about NY! The topic was based off an event here in NC, not NY, so any advice outside of NC especially a NC forum is unwanted/unwaranted.

But what about those Florida laws you were citing earlier as the reason for carrying all those bottles of medication in your glove box?

And of course can't leave out the National Gov't / Military

I read and comprehend just fine. And I stand by my original statement that all prescriptions are not controlled substances.

Saralee;
i've previously posted the laws regarding what a controlled medication is, it has nothing at all to do w/ the RX as the person previously posted.

The question or statement was posed why I was carrying the meds in my glove box, either way Fl rules/laws or NC/rules/laws I'm allowed to carry my meds anywhere I wish.

I've always wondered why NewYorkers tout how great it is up North but yet they flock like rabid dogs to infect other states, there isn't a state that New Yorkers have invaded that they have actually helped the region they always bring crime, poor attitude to our nice Southern States.

Stick to what you New Yorkers know best, snow, and being mean!

As for the other posts you sited above I was stating feeling, not facts as you did, when someone ask's me why I did or do something I can only answer.

You however come here and start sighting NY laws and how it's done in NY etc etc, no one ask ed you about NY, someone asked me about why I carry my meds in my car, see the difference, yeah you probably don't!

I think you're getting confused about which people do not believe their was any fault by the officer to ask you about the four bottles of medication in your glove box. He couldn't read the bottles, so he asked to be able to verify them and verify that the contents on the label match the pills contained in the bottle. Otherwise how could he possibly know if it was a controlled substance or not.

I'm from PA and all I did was quote your previous comments. As well as ask what your fellow nurses that you work with thought about the situation at hand because unlike the board, they would know you best and possibly have a better understanding of your situation of having 4 bottles of medicaiton in your glove box.
