As we approach Labor Day weekend, you’ll want to take any precaution to avoid being pulled over for a DUI offense.

DUI allegations are not to be taken lightly. There are a number of things you will need to address if you were or accused of being under the influence while behind the wheel of a car.

Bitcoin and Money Laundering

A decision by a Miami judge has determined that Bitcoin is not actually money. While this decision has only been made in a smaller jurisdiction, the repercussions could echo far and wide.

What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is a virtual currency that allows online users to spend money anonymously. It can be bought and sold on exchanges with U.S. dollars and other currencies and has even become accepted in some restaurants across the nation. Still, because it is so vaguely defined, and has also been used in nefarious purchases across the net, there is still a lot of vagueness surrounding it – especially when it comes to writing regulatory laws.

Drug Use and Prisons: A Crisis in the Making

Drugs have been for years a part of the national dialogue in all sectors of American culture – political, social, and, most noticeably, in popular culture. It seems that a sizeable segment of the population has a desire to get high, and a cursory look at history hints that this has long been the case.

The Use of Drugs

Drugs have probably been used by people for almost as long as there have been people. Many currently illegal drugs, such as marijuana, opium, coca, and psychedelics have been used for thousands of years for both medical and spiritual purposes. If the use of drugs is such an innate and enduring part of human culture, why is it viewed as criminal behavior worthy of the expenditure of huge amounts of our society’s resources (economic, political, social, etc.)?

Modern America and Prescription Drugs

The Prescription Drug Epidemic

Illicit drugs have a long standing negative image in modern American culture. They are widely regarded as something only those on the fringes of society make use of, but certainly not consumed by upstanding citizens. But, as history has shown, America has long held the door open to the use of drugs by all ranks of our society.

The patent drugs of the 19th century openly contained and promoted the use of drugs like cocaine and morphine and were available without prescription at the corner drugstore. There was little or no social stigma attached to their use.

Two Dozen Arrested in Drug Smuggling Raids

Authorities recently arrested nearly two dozen people in a series of drug raids across Southern California. The arrests were linked to a widespread smuggling ring linked to Mexico’s notorious Sinaloa cartel.

Drug Smuggling Arrest Linked to Sinaloa Cartel

Twenty-two people were arrested in connection to a drug ring responsible for allegedly funneling hundreds of pounds of narcotics across the border. The cartel allegedly used small aircraft and vehicles with concealed compartments in order to get drugs to cities across the Mexico-U.S. border and distributed throughout the United States.

Handling Sexual Assault Charges on Campuses

The last few couple of years has seen an increase in reported on-campus sexual assault cases. These cases are often so hard to not only prove, but also to prosecute. Campuses are often unequipped to handle them, and often times victim’s are unsure on how to proceed.

College Campuses and Handling Sexual Assault Charges

College campuses are obviously known for not only education, but partying. When two college students have drunken sex, it’s always a recipe for potential regrets and lasting consequences. Was it actually consenting in the moment? How much is actually remembered as a result of drugs or alcohol? And clearly remembered? Were there witnesses? Are they reliable witnesses? And also, who should investigate when these encounters lead to allegations of sexual assault?

President Trump’s Star Vandalized

President Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood walk of fame was vandalized this past week. A man is being held for felony vandalism.

Star of Donald Trump Vandalized Again

The Evolution of Organized Crime in America

Organized crime has played a fabled part in 20th century American history. Television and movies have done much to bring the story of organized crime into the nation’s consciousness. Those who remember the dawn of the television era may recall Senator Estes Kefauver and his “Special Committee to Investigate Crime in Interstate Commerce” heatedly questioning notorious mobsters who appeared before the committee in the early 50’s.
