Legislation outlines the definition of a counterfeit substance in 21 USCS § 802 in specific detail. In summary, a counterfeit substance is a fraudulently produced controlled substance, such as a prescription. A reasonable person would believe that the substance is not fake because it has been made to appear like the real prescription. In addition to fake prescriptions, the drug crime lawyers at our office can represent clients who have been accused of possession or sale of counterfeit drugs, such as drugs that seem to be cocaine or heroin, synthetic bath salts, fake marijuana or synthetic steroids.

The criminal justice system enforces strict sanctions against offenders because of the possible dangers of these drugs.
