Trading IF drugs online = VERY dangerous - please read

Ladies -

I have seen a lot of this over my two years of blogging, but it seems to be getting more and more obvious.

(I am a criminal defense attorney)

While you never ever think it'll happen to you, I need you to know that trading prescription drugs online and over state lines is a FEDERAL FELONY. It's delivery of a controlled substance and it can carry a federal PRISON sentence.

And trading them online to someone in the same state is a STATE FELONY that likely also carries a prison sentence.

You don't expect it'll happen to you because you think you know the person on the other end. And you may. But that doesn't mean the next person is safe.

The federal government has a lot of money for prosecution. They could easily start (if they aren't already) monitoring online activity and "catch" women who are trading drugs. I see detectives - state and federal - monitoring things like Craigslist for prostitution and drug sales. Imagine a young agent trying to make a name for him or herself - yup, the IF blogging community could be the place to go.

It seems like it's worth it or even like it's necessary to ask for drugs or send drugs to someone else. IT IS NOT. It may save you a little bit of money but if you get caught, the money you'll spend on an attorney and the money you'll lose when you lose your job will NOT be worth it. And you might be labeled a felon.

For those of you who are going to continue to trade drugs, BE CAREFUL. Do not write blog posts asking for drugs. Do not put a shout out online that someone sent you drugs. It is NOT worth it.

  1. Thanks for the information. I know you are absolutely looking out for our best interest. It. is sad that because I dont have insurance covering medications and someone if willing to donate a medication I have a pescription for , I could be thrown in jail. It pisses me off to say the least. I will continue to donate any meds I can to woman that need them.

  2. I'm glad you wrote this. It has always made me very nervous to see this happening. There have been a few times I've had extras of what some were looking for, but I'm far too much of a rule follower to offer it up. I wish there was a better way to deal with leftovers. I'd love to help people in uninsured situations. But I won't risk committing a crime!

  3. I made the mistake of almost doing this (I wrote a post about it a few weeks ago), but my husband talked some sense in to me. I also Googled and found some scary stories. It sucks that I have meds that are perfectly good that someone could use (that has a prescription!) that I just have to throw away. Thanks for writing this piece.

  4. Thanks for posting this bit of information that I'm guessing quite a few of us didn't know about. Really the only thing to do it push a bill to make insurance cover infertility medicine and treatments. Sort of like how they legalized marijuana in WA.

  5. This is very good to know. I know that the clinic can accept drugs that are donnated and give to other people, how does that work? Is that Legal?!
