Probably both items could have been drugs she ‘legally’ purchased via a doctors prescription. I’m thinking that her problem is that maybe she did not have them in their proper prescription containers. Any prescription (Narcotic or not) must be in its container which cites what it is, the prescribing prescription, the person it is intended for etc etc.

Strange Story. There must be more to this for her to be arrested?
