I am a nurse with a family practice. I have been given the authority to prescribe medications to patients as well as perform certain other procedures. The following is the standard in my state regarding the stealing of medication.

The first issue is that, while I can legally give out pills to my patients, I cannot give them stolen drugs. That is why I was given the authority by my state to issue this warning to my patients.

The idea of a nurse stealing drugs from a medication cart is illegal, and even serious offenses warrant a harsher penalty. In fact, the fact that someone takes the drug to the patient without the patient’s knowledge is grounds for arrest and even criminal prosecution if found guilty.

In the same way that you can shoot someone in a store who is holding a can of soda, you can also shoot a nurse who is giving out pills. It’s not the same, but it’s still an egregious offense. Of course, the law doesn’t stop there. If the patient knows the nurse is stealing drugs, they can be charged with the crime of theft.

A nurse who steals drugs from the Pharmacy is also a crime under the law. If he knows that the patient is taking pills, then he should be stopped.

If you know what a doctor is doing, you can be charged with practicing medicine without a license. The fact that you know what a doctor is doing is not a defense because you are a physician. Furthermore, the doctor can also be charged with practicing medicine without a license if there are allegations of misdiagnosis.

If you’re not a physician, you can be charged with a second offense under a new law. For example, if you’re a licensed physician, your probationary period is to be suspended until you are 19 years old. If you’re a licensed physician, then your probationary period is to be suspended until you are 21 years old.

Under this new law, a licensed physician can be arrested, jailed, fined, and sent to prison for possession of illicit drugs. There are other penalties, like jail time for possessing drugs or refusing to submit to drug tests. You can be charged with a third offense for possession of drugs.
