Get a former chief prosecutor on your side!

Oxycodone (OxyContin) is a semi-synthetic opioid created from poppy-derived Thebaine. It is considered a narcotic analgesic and used to provide relief from moderate to severe pain. Developed in Germany in 1916, today it is available as a single-ingredient in immediate release and controlled release form. There are also combination products available on the market that are formulated with non-narcotic ingredients such as NSAIDS and acetaminophen, which is found in Tylenol.

Oxycodone has been used to treat moderate to moderately severe acute or chronic pain since 1917 and has been found to improve the quality of life for those suffering with many types of pain. In high doses, Oxycodone can cause shallow breathing, hypotension, circulatory collapse, respiratory arrest, and death.

In the United States, millions of Americans abuse opioid drugs and according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2010 16,652 deaths were associated with opioid overdose. Because of Oxycodone's high potential for abuse and addiction, in the United States it is a Schedule II controlled substance.

In Nevada, one can face drug charges for the unlawful possession not for sale or for unlawful possession for sale of Oxycodone or OxyContin. Since Oxycodone is a Schedule II controlled substance, unlawful possession not for the purpose of sale is a category E felony offense, punishable by a minimum of 1 year to a maximum term of 4 years in prison with the possibility of a $5,000 fine. Except as provided under paragraph (b) of subsection 1 of NRS 176 A.100, when a person is found guilty of a category E felony, the court shall suspend the sentence and grant probation upon certain conditions as the court deems appropriate.
