Prescription drug crimes include fraud, forgery, sales, doctor shopping, and unlawful possession. Prescription medications are highly addictive and have become a widespread issue in the Los Angeles area in recent years. Most prescription drug addictions begin innocently when a person is given pain medication to deal with an injury or recovery from surgery. Sometimes individuals become addicted and start to break the law in order to obtain more and more medication to feed their addiction. Veteran Drug Crime Attorney David Elden believes that individuals with prescription drug addictions should receive rehabilitation and treatment for the underlying addiction problem and not jail time.
