If you take just a couple to have with you, do they need to be in a prescription bottle?

To be 100% legal?


Looks like I have an answer:

Just have the pharmacy give me a small labeled bottle

I am sure I dont know.

Just put em in a balloon and shove em in your rectum. That way there's nothing to explain.

I'd go with yes to be safe. That proves they are yours and were prescribed to you. I have heard stories...

I even usually keep my OTC meds in their original containers just to avoid any unpleasant confusion.

yes

I don't know if it's just FL.

I just take the information sheet out of the cvs/walgreens bag and put it in my glovebox.

I've got many running scripts (yay chronic pain!) so no shortage of sheets to keep in cars, office, etc.
Link Posted: 10/12/2012 9:35:21 AM EDT
In VA if you have them on you without a prescription IN YOUR POSSESSION, you are going to jail. You can present the script later but you now have a felony arrest on your record.

Link Posted: 10/12/2012 9:45:12 AM EDT
My wife takes them and I make sure to remove any 'stray's' from the car before I take it anyplace.
I know they aren't mine and I am pretty sure the PoPo would be upset should they be found during a traffic stop.
The wife has so dang many on her at any given time that it is probematic to carry them in the original bottles.
I just hope the arresting officer/deputy is understanding.
Link Posted: 10/12/2012 9:47:39 AM EDT
Just keep them in their bottles. If you get them in bulk, ask the pharmacist to label a small bottle for you.
They will usually do this if you explain it to them. I would not shove a handful of vicoden in your front pocket and go for a drive.
Link Posted: 10/12/2012 9:47:50 AM EDT
Based upon what I have read here in the past, I even take my non-narcotic meds in their original bottles when I go on vacation. It's sort of moronic, but I don't need the hassles.

I just saw this last night on a re-run of Cops. The wrote the girl up for putting prescription drugs in an Advil bottle. She claimed to have a prescription for them but the officers said that it was illegal to have the pills without proof of prescription.
Link Posted: 10/12/2012 9:49:18 AM EDT
The pharmacy gives you a tear-off card with your purchase. Fold that up and put it in your wallet. You can also peel the label off the bottle and stick it to a business card and put that in your wallet.

Yes.

But if you dont and an issue arises, I think when you go to court, you will be able to prove without a doubt that you should have had them on you.

I honestly do sometimes bring just a couple so I dont have the whole bottle with me in event someone breaks into my car or whatever and
I am out an entire bottles worth since I am on a daily regiment for pain managment.

I do take the labels off and put them on smaller bottles too to alleviate having a bigger bottle with a bunch of pills in them, so if it does happen, they only get a few and I will be fine for the month.

NY state law:

§ 3345. Possession of controlled substances by ultimate users original
container. Except for the purpose of current use by the person or
animal for whom such substance was prescribed or dispensed, it shall be
unlawful for an ultimate user of controlled substances to possess such
substance outside of the original container in which it was dispensed.
Violation of this provision shall be an offense punishable by a fine
of not more than fifty dollars.

Depending on state law, yes. In GA you can get charged with Prescriptions not in original container and possession of a controlled substance if you don't have scrip info.
Link Posted: 10/12/2012 10:04:26 AM EDT
In my state they need to be in the appropriate pill bottle prescribed to you. With the quantity not to exceed the amount of one prescription.

Apparently, yes. But if it's something I take daily I just put one in my pocket.

Carrying a huge pill bottle around is inconvenient & increases the chance I'll lose them.

They need to be in the bottle. If not, you will likely best the rap but not the ride.
Link Posted: 10/12/2012 10:12:34 AM EDT
In my opinion these laws are there to get the pill heads not grandma traveling with her 7 day container. Also it up the court/DA to look at each case and prosecute accordingly.

They really have no business doing DEA type stuff like playing with your meds - if they do, it's not because they want to bust you... it's because they want to steal from you.

Nobody would be allowed to touch any pills I would take for sanitary purposes - if they have a valid reason for suspicion then they also need to follow hygienic handling procedures.

However, mixing different pills in something they can see in is asking for trouble. Using an Advil bottle was good 20 years ago - but now there are people who have careers based in enforcing laws which shouldn't be necessary.

One problem is, that taking the meds required while away from home can lead one to hauling large quantities in several original containers - risking those meds to loss by heat and theft, along with dropping them or whatever. Since docs don't believe anyone these days, your loss can be painful, or even lethal event. Use an alternative method of carrying meds and lose your reputation by an arrest picture on the Internet - and it doesn't matter if you are just a patient since you're breaking the law.

Yep
Helps if your name is on the bottle, too.
Link Posted: 10/12/2012 10:32:45 AM EDT
Don't know, don't care. That's shit I don't worry about. I have a bottle with about 5 different scrips in it just in case. Keeping track of the pills is more pressing. But they're generally harmless benzos that I rarely take.

More failures of the War on Drugs.

Become a felon for having your doctor prescribed meds on you.

Pathetic.

In Georgia, having prescription pills not in the original container is a misdemeanor.

I think you misunderstood me.

Nonetheless, common sense laws make our life easier by catching and penalizing and deterring negative elements in our society, e.g. rapists, murderers, drug addicts, street racers, vandals, etc.

I think it's quite reasonable to have to present evidence that your drugs are in fact legal upon questioning (, of course in a legal process during which such a question would arise. Stop and Frisk is stasi/kgb horseshit. If you're puled over and the cop sees a pill bottle, sorry dude, I have NO problem with him asking you for a prescription.)

You have registration on your car, I carry a carry permit, etc etc.

Link Posted: 10/12/2012 11:03:38 AM EDT
Yes. You can leave the bulk of your RX at home, but keep a couple in the original bottle if you need to. Be sure to label whatever you leave at home, because it is easy to put pills away, only to find some unlabeled ones later on and wonder what they are, or how long they were put aside. I copy pretty much everything of the RX label and put it on the container at home. If you use a hairdryer, you can warm up the label from the pharmacy, copy it, and put it on the ones you leave at home, then return the original pharmacy label onto the bottle you keep with you. I don't like keeping alot of meds in the car, but I think it is always a good idea to keep one or two days worth of important meds in the car in case you get stranded.

Meds that it would be wise to have a couple of days worth in the car (depending on your needs)

Blood pressure meds
anti seizure meds
diabetic meds
chronic pain meds
heart meds
stomach (antacids) meds
almost anything that not taking will cause problems

you've strayed from your argument to assign an invalid extension to mine.

your inane extension regards NEW laws, not the enforcement of EXISTING laws.

drug laws exist, this is part of their enforcement.

10 round mag laws, when/where they existed, could CERTAINLY be checked in the same way.
When I was in NY we were challenged at the range MANY times by LEO's to check our mags.

I sure wish you would've been there to tell them no.

the argument behind all your posts is that you want ready access to opiods and narcotics.

that's not the point here, as they are ALREADY illegal.

When flying, I use 2 zip lock bags. I place all prescriptions in bag #1 (in pharmacy bottles/boxes) - then turn it upside down and place that in bag #2. This eliminates potential accidental spillage - but more importantly it allows anyone to see in - and there is no accidental access or spilled pills. If TSA were to start to open bag #1 - then Houston, we have a problem... and a fuss would be made before bag 2 is accessed. First concern expressed would be hygiene, then necessity.

It's interesting you place drug abusers in the same category as rapists, murderers, street racers, and vandals, as every crime you mention except for illegal drug use causes direct harm to others.

Personally, I don't believe the government regulating what you can & can't put in your own body as 'common sense'. At least not in a free society.
