Illegal Drugs vs. Legal Drugs – What’s the Difference?

How a drug is used – or, more specifically, what the drug is used for – often determines whether or not its use is considered legal. This distinction is particularly important when dealing with prescription medications such as barbiturates used to alleviate anxiety, or narcotic analgesics used for pain, or amphetamines used to treat attention deficit disorder. When used as prescribed, these drugs are completely legal. It’s when they are used (or abused) outside of their intended use that legality comes into question. When the manufacture, sale, and / or use of certain legal drugs presents a danger to individuals, the drugs may then be considered illegal. If you’re facing drug crime charges for the illegal use of any of the following, contact us for help:
