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
