In NJ the law is that you must keep your prescription drugs in the original dispensed container otherwise
you face going to jail for up to 180 days and pay a fine of up to $1000.00.  The reason for this harsh and strict
law is so that law enforcement can quickly determine who is allowed and who is not allowed to have
prescription drugs in their possession.   This offense is commonly charged to people traveling who have put
the drugs in another container for transport.  An arrest and conviction for this offense will subject the
offender to a criminal record.
