I gave my friend 7 laxative pills and he now is demanding 200$ or he will take legal action, if it went to court who would win?

I was at a party and a kid wanted to take painkillers from the moms cabinet, I am friends with the girl who was throwing the party and she told me to get them for him knowing i would teach him a lesson, instead of xanax i gave him 7 laxative pills and he took them all, he then threatened me and is forcing me to pay him 200$ or he will tell the police. In the case this goes to court who would win? I am 16 and he is 18 and was also under the influence of several other drugs at the time

Seems like it would be stupid of him to attempt to take legal action, but the fact is you still gave him pills, and an amount that could have caused serious side effects. While he'd likely end up getting trouble, you could too.

In this case though, I don't suggest you pay him anything - the odds that he will actually take it to the police are pretty small, and as I said he'd be incriminating himself as well.

That was just a dumb thing to do, and I say learn from this and do not do it again.

Adults can't sue minors, so you're good for another two years.

Of course they can, they just include the parent's name in the suit.

Yes they can and the judge can award damages paid by the child once they start to work, or make the parents pay for the kids actions.

Take action first, what he's doing is called extortion.

Tell him your not giving him a dime, then tell him you'll tell the cops he was wasted on drugs and took them on his own free will thinking they were prescription pain killers that were not prescribed to him! The looser won't do anything, he's all talk!
it would have been worse had you given him that many pain killers

I don't think the police will touch this one, even assuming he went to the police. This dude is really stupid, he was on drugs and so his neck is out farther than yours. I suggest you find new friends.

First, both you and the kid that wanted the drugs are felony $tupid. You could have caused him to become dehydrated due to excessive bowel movements, even to the point of killing him. If some thinks he/she is getting illegal drugs, the court takes it that you gave him legal drugs. With that in mind you could be charged with dispensing drugs! Him demanding money is extortion. I have never seen suck a sack of $tupid in my whole career. I hope you both learn from this before someone becomes a fatality!

If he chooses to take it to court it's gonna end up costing both Of you more than $200, just relax and learn from this mistake. I highly doubt he's gonna want to pursue this legally, he's just looking for quick cash.
