It is understood that teenagers do not have the same maturity or ability to reason that adults have and, therefore, may make poor decisions. Other teenagers may simply be at the wrong place at the wrong time when a crime is allegedly committed. Still other teenagers, simply because they are teenagers, may be accused of being troublemakers. With all this in mind, when it comes to the prosecution of juvenile crimes, it is not always fair to put a teenager through the same court process as an adult.

When is it illegal to possess a prescription drug in Virginia?
