I almost got busted on a felony possession of a controlled substance charge, but it was a huge misunderstanding. My mother had pancreatic cancer, and the doctors prescribed morphine during her final months. Only a handful of pharmacies in the area would even fill the prescription, and there were very strict procedures in place. My dad was actually the only family member allowed to get it filled.
When my mother passed away, there was almost a full bottle of morphine left at our house. I called the pharmacy and they told me to bring it back to the store as soon as possible. While I was driving to the store, I got pulled over for running a stop sign. The officer spotted the bottle of morphine on the passenger seat and grilled me about it. He said it was enough for a possession charge. The pharmacist saved the day by confirming the prescription and the conversation we had earlier. Federal possession laws are no joke.
