In many cases, possession of a prescription drug such as Xanax, Adderall, Oxycodone, and other Opioid Pain Relievers will result in a misdemeanor charge. If you have prior felony convictions, or are a registered sex offender, possession of a prescription drug without a valid prescription may result in felony charges.
