Prescription drug fraud is not a minor offense. It is a serious drug crime that is punishable by a maximum of 20 years in state prison and up to $10,000 in fines. When prescription drug fraud is committed by a medical professional, the doctor, pharmacist or other medical professional stands to not only face criminal charges but to also lose his or her medical license and job. Forging a prescription, altering a prescription, doctor shopping to obtain the same prescription from multiple doctors often for the purposing of selling the drugs to make a profit, impersonating a physician to get a prescription filled, issuing a prescription for no medical purpose, distributing or selling drugs that have been altered without the user's knowledge, and any other method of obtaining prescription drugs through fraudulent means are all ways in which an individual can commit prescription drug fraud.
