What is a Forged Prescription?
Forging a prescription or possessing a forged prescription is a serious crime in the Province of Alberta. Forging a prescription is defined as illegally acquiring pharmaceuticals for either personal use or for profit. Personal use means you intend to ingest the medication or compounds for the effect, usually with the intent of getting high or intoxicated. Acquiring them for profit means you intend to sell or distribute them which is an even more serious crime.
A prescription can be forged in many ways: blatantly writing your own prescription on a blank pad; or, increasing the quantity on an otherwise legitimate prescription. A skilled Edmonton, Alberta, illegal prescription defense lawyer can help you if you’ve been charged with forging a prescription.
