Can I be charged with a crime for having medication that is not in it's original packaging?
I am currently on felony probation, due to get off 02/10/10. Recently I was pulled over by the police and there was one box of sudafed pills that had been popped out of the blister packs and put into a medicine bottle for easier carrying. I have been charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to manufacture. That is crazy.I'm allowed to buy those pills. Why does it matter if they are in their original package as long as they aren't over limit number? Anyway. I think its a bunch of crap. Is it not true you have to have at least 2 components?
