If you did not have the drugs in a prescription container you have no defense. That being said your lawyer may be able to make a defense for you.
For example typically the best defense to having a prescription drug not it the original dispensed container is that you had a prescription for the
drug. However if you had more than a 10 day supply it is not technically a defense but one that your lawyer can generally sell to the prosecutor to
downgrade or dismiss the charge. Other defenses could include the fact that you were driving a car owned by another individual and that individual
had the drugs in the car and had a prescription for the drugs of course this would require the person who owned the car to come to court show his
prescription and admit the drugs were left in the vehicle by mistake. A good lawyer can think of a defense that will allow you to avoid or reduce the
penalties you face on a prescription drug charge but it takes an attorney with experience to know how to sell the story to the judge. Attorney
