The implications of marijuana legalization

With the passing of Amendment 2 in Florida, more people can legally access medical marijuana. Although many are supportive of the use of this substance to treat certain ailments and health conditions, there are still many people who are against it. This opposition continues to slow down the integration rate of medical marijuana into the state's economy. However, there are other factors that have not yet come into play that may also impact the industry. Here is what you should know about the implications of this legislation.

Evidence, pretrial resolutions, and other points in a defense

Florida laws place very serious penalties on many crimes. In the case of violent crimes, defendants can expect to face penalties including incarceration if they are convicted. Most defendants don't want to be pulled away from their families to serve that incarceration. While we can't promise the outcome of your case, we can work on your behalf to minimize the penalties that you might face if you are convicted.

What are some facts about violent crimes in the U.S.?

Why we're headed into some of the deadliest days on the road

As we head into the holiday season, we're approaching some of the deadliest days of the year on the road for drivers. That's true even here in South Florida where we don't have to deal with the snowy conditions that other Americans face during the winter, because many fatal crashes during this time are alcohol-related.

What are some defense options for a DUI after an arrest?

If you are driving a commercial vehicle at the time of a traffic stop and are found to be driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, you could be in deep trouble with the law. You will likely lose your license, and you will be disqualified from driving a commercial motor vehicle for at least a year if you are convicted of the crime. To make matters worse, you will not be eligible for a hardship license. That means that you might lose your job and that the conviction could end up affecting your family.
