If you do not have a valid prescription for prescription drugs in your possession, Alabama law may impose significant penalties. As with other drug crimes, the amount, intent, and type of prescription drug may influence the penalties you face. Depending on the drug you are alleged to possess, you could face one to ten years in state or federal prison and massive fines in excess of $50,000; if you are convicted of distribution, sales, or drug trafficking of prescription drugs, your penalties may increase. Dramatically.
