What are the marijuana laws in North Carolina?

Marijuana is a drug that seems to stay in the news these days. Some states are making recreational marijuana legal. Other states are making medical marijuana legal. Some other states are decriminalizing marijuana. North Carolina is one of the states that has taken steps to decriminalize marijuana, but there are still penalties for marijuana convictions.

Getting a drug charge in North Carolina can be such a negative thing. You can lose your job because you have been charged with possession; you can alienate your family who have been there for you in the past. You can even have a record if the charge sticks. You aren't the first person to be charged with possessing or trafficking drugs. As a matter of fact, there is a long history that goes back to the 1960s of drug abuse in America.

What are some possible defenses of my North Carolina DWI charge?

Being arrested on charges of driving while under the influence can be an extremely humbling experience. You may feel as though the best course of action available is to throw yourself at the mercy of the court and accept any consequences for your actions. However, it's important for you to know that DWI laws are equally harsh against defendants who actually realize the errors of their ways and plan to reform as they are for scofflaw defendants who have not yet learned their lesson and will continue to drive drunk.

Fight prejudice against bikers when you seek compensation

The seriousness of semi-truck accidents was highlighted in our previous blog post. If you recall, we discussed the accident in which a semi-truck driver might have fallen asleep at the wheel of the large truck prior to crashing into a group of six bikers who were parked on the side of the road. Of those six bikers, four were injured and two died.
