Can I send Zoloft through the USPS without ending up locked up in a dark, damp hole for the next 25 years?

I've got a several month's supply of Zoloft sitting around that I no longer use. I'd like to send it to a friend in another city, as she's got no insurance and the damn stuff's expensive. We both have valid scripts. Am I asking for trouble?

I'm planning on using USPS and I'm in the states (duh). I'd like to just wrap 'em in some bubble wrap and throw the things in a padded envelope, as bottles are bulky and rattly (and have my name, not hers, on 'em), which I'd assume would arouse the suspicions of a bored postal clerk. I'd like to enclose a copy of her script, but she's running low and I'm planning on doing this sometime tomorrow.
The whole thing seems not all that legal to me, but it also seems like the repercussions would be mild (if at all) and worth the risk - she's a good friend, after all. If x-rayed (do they really do that?) and opened by the Man, would they just seal it up and send it on it's way when it's realized the pills are antidepressants and not Oxycontin or roofies, or would I run the risk of having USPS Federales kick in my door?
