Description:Client charged with Unlawful Possession of Adderol, Unlawful Possession of Suboxone, Unlawful Possession of Vicoprofen and Unlawful Possession of Marijuana. Client was pulled over at the Peace Arch border to Canada for accidentally travelling in the Nexus lane. Search revealed her possession of the drugs. Client was licensed pharmacist. Investigations revealed she took the prescription drugs away from a drug-abusing friend she visited while travelling. The friend was willing to testify on client's behalf. We entered a 2-year Deferred Prosecution agreement. Prosecutor dismissed after client obtained a state-certified drug evaluation, followed the treatment recommendations and performed 240 hours of community service. The dismissal saved client's pharmaceutical license from being revoked.
