Does the hunter have a license and are squirrels in season or seasoning?

Not all prescriptions are controlled substances, although Person A isn't likely to find much of a market for Amoxil or Keflex.

If the hunter has a license, it isn't a crime, but it sounds like Person A doesn't have a license. Big trouble. The squirrel, on the other hand, is in trouble if caught with the acorn. Consuming the acorn isn't illegal, but possessing it is.

If you're caught buying viagara, the cops can make it pretty hard for you. Used to be a short sentence, but it's getting longer. The law is quite firm about this.

I think Football is what's holding America back from going metric Games take forever in yards, it'd be almost 10% longer in meters. And the 45.72 Meter Line doesn't have the same ring to it.

Baseball is a silly game. A pitcher throws a ball towards a batter. Does the pitcher want the batter to hit the ball? No! So why does he throw it in the first place?

There is also the civil crime of insurance fraud, if you sell a prescription that your insurance bought for you.

I may or may not have been on the buying end of a similar type of transaction before. As the substance being hypothetically purchased could also be purchased without a prescription--just at exorbitant rates--I may have decided that I had no legal culpability as long as I didn't ask too many questions, and kept my nose out of any ethical quarrels between the seller and their insurance company.

Not to mention that you hypothetically probably didn't pay sales tax.

It was hypothetically classified as a food item, no tax levied. Also, it was hypothetically purchased across state lines, so again no sales tax.

The Ranger assigned to your case has confirmed this; but, some day you'll slip up and they'll be there.

Why do I have to pay a middle man a hundred damn dollars to write me a prescription for 'not a controlled substance'.

If you drive down the road with ANY prescription pills not in their proper container, [and get stopped by the popo] you will go to jail.

If I can't walk into Wally World and buy it without a prescription, that is a controlled substance. In circumstance, if not on an official list.

A prescription drug may not be a narcotic, or a recreational drug, but I still think that it would be a controlled substance.

Then again, I'm not a doctor. Or a cop.

Because government and industry collude to take advantage of you.

I was referring to the DEA classification of controlled drugs, Schedules 1 through 5. Other prescription drugs are restricted in that they need a prescription, but aren't tracked in the same way.
