What should I know when traveling with prescription drugs?

With summer just around the corner, people in Texas are gearing up for vacations that may take them across the country or even around the world. If you take prescription medications on a regular basis, you probably have concerns about taking these drugs with you, especially when it comes to legal issues. To ensure you remain in compliance with laws and restrictions, TripSavvy.com offers the following advice.

What is the Compassionate Use Act?

When it comes to marijuana legalization in Texas, the laws are very strict. Medical marijuana is legal but only for very limited situations. Lawmakers have even created special laws to ensure doctors prescribe medical marijuana safely and legally. According to the Department of Public Safety, the Compassionate Use Act is one such law.

Texas on the road to legalizing pot?

In case you are one of many Americans who have been sidetracked by the many and ongoing political spectacles at the federal level, there have been some interesting political moments right here in Texas over the past few months. Moments that may lead to the legalization of marijuana in the Lone Star State, and within the next few years.

Which drugs are in penalty group one?

It is no secret that Texas law is tough on crime, especially infractions involving controlled substances. Even considering this default hard-line stance, enforcement could border on overzealous when the alleged crimes include possession or delivery of penalty group one substances. If you stood accused of such a crime, it would likely be in your best interest to build the strongest case possible in your defense: the stakes tend to be high in these situations.

Is it illegal to give prescription drugs to another person?

Since prescription drugs are obtained and used by so many people in Texas every year, it might seem like an innocent gesture to share your prescription medicine with a person who is suffering from an allergy or muscle pain. However, prescription drug distribution is strictly regulated by law. Giving your prescription medication to anyone else may land you in serious legal trouble.
