Taking prescribed medications should not be a violation of the conditions of a deferred prosecution, but it is probably wise to inform your attorney, probation officer and the court. If you're talking about prescribed marijuana, the answer depends on the treatment provider and the court. It is not uncommon for the judge to order no consumption of alcohol or marijuana during the term of deferred prosecution even if you have prescription. If you are taking another prescription medication, that medication will typically be addressed by your treatment provider. You should ask your attorney the specifics of your situation or if you don't have an attorney, you should retain one immediately.
