Q) How can I legally carry my prescription drugs?

A) If you possess prescription drugs that were lawfully prescribed to you, the medication must be in the original container in which it was dispensed.  The only exception is that a person may possess up to a 10-day supply in something other than the original container if, upon the request by law enforcement, the person produces the name and address of the practitioner who prescribed the substance or the pharmacist who dispensed it.  If you refuse to provide this information to law enforcement, you will be charged with a disorderly persons offense.
