Defending Your Xanax Possession with Intent to Distribute Charges in New Jersey
Illegal use of Xanax has become more and more common over the past ten to twenty years. Through means of prescription fraud or forgery, it has become easier to obtain Xanax to sell on the street. People use Xanax as a recreational drug because it can cause feelings of relaxation and happiness. It is also used because the effects come on very quickly, providing users with an instant high. People will at times crush and snort Xanax pills or take them with alcohol to wash them down in order to increase the euphoric effect.
Taking Xanax that has been obtained illegally or that is legally prescribed for another person is against the law in NJ. It does not matter if the person is a member of your family trying to help ease your anxiety by offering you a small white Xanax pill from their prescription. It is illegal for them to distribute and for you to take Xanax that has been legally prescribed by a doctor for another person.
