Diversion refers to criminal activity involving prescription drugs.  Good medicines help many patients cope with conditions such as chronic pain, anxiety, and ADHD.  But some medications are used for the wrong reasons.  Like illegal drugs, these prescription drugs have a high "street value" and can lead to addiction.  In order for law enforcement to combat Rx drug crimes it is essential for officers to know the most common drugs of abuse, what laws apply, and what resources are available.
