Illegal Prescription Drugs

Prescription drug crimes are particularly popular in Massachusetts today, and people are finding themselves addicted to many drugs they may have previously deemed safe. Prescription drugs are legal for those to whom they are prescribed, but when taken by a party who does not have a prescription, then become illegal drugs. Some of the most common illegal prescription drug cases involve pain killers, anti-depressants, and other drugs that can give the person taking it a sense of euphoria.

Defense for a Variety of Drug Crimes

At Murphy & Rudolf LLP, our Worcester criminal defense lawyers can provide knowledgeable and aggressive defense representation for clients facing misdemeanor and felony drug offenses. Some commonly used non-prescription illegal drugs include marijuana, heroin, LSD, cocaine, ecstasy, and crystal meth. The highly addictive nature of many of these drugs often cause them to inflict a great deal of harm on those who find themselves addicted.

Common drug crimes charges include: 

  • Drug possession


  • Drug trafficking


  • Drug possession with intent to distribute


  • Drug manufacturing

A charge of drug possession involves illegal substances, including illegal drugs or prescription drugs without a personal prescription. Drug distribution or trafficking, on the other hand, involves larger quantities of drugs, including prescription and non-prescription drugs. Distribution and trafficking often carry harsher penalties.

Drug possession with intent to distribute is a charge that may be brought against someone who is found in possession of a large amount of drugs with the intention of selling them. Charges involving drug manufacturing, however, involve the making or creation of controlled substances. These charges are often brought against those who are suspected of manufacturing illegal drugs such as crystal meth and LSD.
