Tips for safety traveling with prescription drugs

Are you planning a road trip? Do you need to bring prescription medications with you? If you answered yes to these questions, it's important that you know how to safely transport prescription medication in Maryland. Take a look at the tips outlined below so you do not find yourself in trouble if stopped by a law enforcement officer.

Make sure you pack all of your prescription medications in their original containers for the trip. Even if you use a weekly distribution case, you still need to put the medication in the original containers. You can still bring the weekly dispenser. Just wait to set it up until you have arrived at your destination.

You can further protect yourself from drug-related charges by bringing copies of your medical record or prescription documentation you have on the trip. Being able to present this documentation to a police officer will help prove that you are the owner of the prescription drugs.

Research all prescription drug restrictions for the area where you are headed. This will help determine if you need to leave some of your medicine at home and prevent any legal issues. This is especially important if you decide to fly out of Maryland to another country.

Safely transporting prescription medication is important when you travel and have a lot of medicine to take on a daily basis. You are well within your rights to bring this medication with you. Just make sure that you have documentation to prove that it was legally prescribed to you and that you don't drive while under the influence of drugs that can impact your ability to safely operate your vehicle.
