    Ah.. possession without state permit or prescription. There's a real crime. You can possess it, as long as you've paid the state fees and gone through the state dealers and distributors. But only then, otherwise it's jail, confiscation of your property, and seizure of your dollars. Believe it!

        It tells me that they were probably once prescribed the pills they were caught with. They more than likely became addicted to them, seeing that doctors right prescriptions these days like post it notes on their desks. The only thing a prescription does is make sure the pharmacies and distributors are paid. They werent making any money here, hence the arrests
