Many states actually require that you keep your controlled, or prescription drugs, in their original containers labeled with the prescription. Of course, if you can prove that you have a prescription for a certain drug you are in no position of being accused of having a substance illegally. However, having your pills discovered in a pillbox during a routine traffic stop may violate certain state laws and may cause you undue problems resolving the legitimacy of their possession.
