I was holding someone else's prescription and was arrested for possession of a controlled substance

Florida law permits an individual to legally possess a controlled substance obtained pursuant to a valid prescription. The “prescription defense” is available to the prescription holder, and any individual authorized by the prescription holder, to hold the medications on his or her behalf.

If you were arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance for carrying someone else's prescription medications, call the attorneys of Soler & Simon at (941) 444-5128 for a free case evaluation.
