15. If one wishes to push the legal envelope, "buying a doctor" is a criminal conspiracy
The scripts are illegal. The doc is breaking the law. The addict is knowingly taking illegally gotten drugs.

No, it isn't as often prosecuted as sending some college kid to the pokey for selling enough smack to pay for her habit, but both are crimes.
