Can I go to jail for allowing my roommate to use my prescription medication?

My roommate was preparing for finals and asked me if he could have one of my adderall pills. I have ADHD and I have had it since I was 8 or 9 years old. I did not accept any money from him but I did give him one. I got a phone call several hours later that he had a panic attack from the stimulant, freaked out and drove himself to the hospital. Somehow the police got involved and wondered where he got it from, and he threw me under the bus. Now the police want to speak to me and I am clueless of what I should do.

    The first thing you need to do is to contact a criminal defense attorney. If the police want to speak with you, you will want to have an attorney present. If you cannot hire one now, most times it is best not to speak with them. Please understand that you don't have to speak to them. Without knowing more, it is difficult to suggest what you should do. The best would be to contact a criminal defense attorney in your county.

    It is a felony to deliver to or give someone a controlled substance if it is not their prescription. It is the same statute as selling. You should probably talk to an attorney before you contact the police.

    You should hire an attorney. Do not speak with the police at all. And never admit to having committed a crime on the internet.
