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, fine and even up to 180 days in jail.  We can help you avoid these penalties with
