Why would someone's charge change from possession of methamphetamine to Drugs-Illegally Obtaining a Controlled Substance?

Hire a lawyer ASAP. The Investigative Hold means that the investigator wishes to get a statement from him before he is released. He should not give a statement at all. As far as the charges changing the substance may not actually be methamphetamine as they thought and was some other substance that he allegedly obtained illegally such as some sort of prescription medication.
No attorney-client relationship exists ,this response should not be considered as advice and should not be relied upon. Make a confidential appointment to speak with counsel in person or by telephone.
Hire a local attorney immediately and have the attorney call the jail and instruct them not to question your husband without an attorney present. An “investigative hold” means they want to question him, and that could make a big difference in the outcome of the case. That’s all you can do at this point.
