Akron Xanax Attorney

Drug Crimes Involving Xanax

Although it is legal to possess Xanax under the direction of a physician, if you are found to be in possession of Xanax without an authorized prescription you could be facing serious prescription drug charges. Doctors generally prescribe Xanax to treat panic attacks, anxiety and depression. It is a type of benzodiazepine and can be highly addictive, and very difficult to stop to using, even fatal.

Because Xanax has a high potential for abuse, it is considered a controlled substance under Ohio law. The penalties you could face for crimes associated with this drug are based in part by the quantity of the substance found in your possession. Conviction can dramatically alter the course of your life.

The consequences for possession of Xanax drug generally include:

  • Jail or prison time
  • Fines
  • Probation
  • A permanent criminal record

Your penalties could be further increased if the court believes you were involved in trafficking the controlled substance. The presence of cash, a larger quantity of the drug, prescription pads or other evidence could be used to establish intent to sell. Christopher G. Thomarios, Esq.
