Ok, so I need help... My partner and I just split. We live in Colorado and both carry Colorado DL. He is prescribed Med's and has started to make the move to Texas but forgot some of his meds... Welbutrin, Rizatriptan and Topamax. They all have his prescription on them and are brand new, never opened -- Me not thinking anything about it, he asked me to mail them to him in Texas... I put them in the mail. He mentioned that he hasn't gotten them. I started to look and realized that it's not legal to mail them? I had NO idea that it wasn't legal to send them even if they are YOUR Prescriptions... I'm freaking out because I have my return address and His address is on there... Should I be worried??? It was not intended to be intentional...
Don't freak out yet. If you are contacted by law enforcement, say nothing and get a lawyer. Also, don't do it again.

Currently, there is an epidemic of prescription controlled substances (Schedule II) abuse. The federal government has it's hands full managing this public crisis. The medications you have listed are not addictive nor controlled substances. Rest easy. If law enforcement contacts you, exercise your right to remain silent and retain legal counsel. And, obviously, do not make the error again.
