regulated, carrying stiff penalties for improper usage and distribution.

Penalties for Prescription Drug Charges
Any drug that is used for medical purposes must have a valid, current prescription
to be legally possessed. Carrying prescription drugs without a doctor’s
written consent is punishable by law. If convicted for a violation, a
person can face harsh punishments. Consequences for conviction will vary
depending on whether or not a person has any priors on their record.
Conviction can bring the following penalties:
- For a first or second conviction, up to four years in prison and a felony charge
- For a third or fourth conviction, up to four years in prison, a felony
charge, and up to $20,000 in fines
Nevada punishes these offenses harshly due to the addictive and powerful
nature of many prescription drugs. If you are currently facing a prescription
drug charge, it is urgent that you contact a skilled legal professional
from our firm to get started towards building your defense. Upon further
investigation into your individual situation, an attorney from our firm
can determine the most appropriate course of action to pursue.
