One common offense involving prescription drugs is prescription fraud, which is defined as knowingly or intentionally obtaining, or attempting to obtain, a controlled substance by misrepresentation, fraud, forgery, deception, or subterfuge. Prescription fraud is a Class D Felony, punishable by up to 12 years imprisonment and a fine of up to $100,000. This, of course, is in addition to the fines and penalties that go along with the possession, sale, or distribution of the drug itself, which could themselves be quite severe.
