The misuse, abuse and illegal distribution of prescription drugs is a growing problem in many communities along with a trend of prescription forgery. Some people unable to find relief for their symptoms may turn to falsifying prescriptions to get more of the drug they feel they need, while others may abuse prescription medication for its intoxicating effects. Forging a prescription is defined as illegally acquiring pharmaceuticals for either personal use or for profit.
