Riverside County Receives Substantial Assistance in Fighting Drug-Impaired Driving Cases

Riverside County Receives Substantial Assistance in Fighting Drug-Impaired Driving CasesThe Riverside County District Attorney’s office announced that it has received over $490,000 from the California Office of Traffic Safety to assist in prosecuting drugged driving cases. The grant will be used by the Vertical Prosecution Unit to retain additional DDAs to prosecute drug impaired driving cases. According to a statement by the District Attorney’s office. The Vertical Prosecution Unit’s goal is to reduce “drug impaired traffic fatalities and injuries by holding drug-impaired drivers accountable.”

California aggressively prosecutes drug-impaired and alcohol-impaired driving, and Riverside County is no exception. Tough laws designed to decrease the number of fatalities from DUI accidents carry severe penalties for drivers who are convicted for drug-impaired driving or alcohol-impaired driving. Alcohol-impaired driving fatalities increased during 2013 according to the California Office of Traffic Safety. The percentage of drivers killed in accidents who tested positive for legal and/or illegal drugs has been increasing every year since 2006; therefore, law enforcement agencies are cracking down on driving under the influence of drugs (DUID) cases throughout California.

You may be restrained from seeing your own children and other family members.

spicesBack in 1984, a scientist at Clemson University named John W. Huffman began studying the interaction between drugs and brain receptors. He and his colleagues created 460 synthetic cannabinoid compounds that resemble THC, the active ingredient in marijuana.

Why? The answer was harmless enough. The brain receptors play a role in regulating pain and inflammation in the body, and as Huffman and his team tested their cannabinoid compounds on lab animals, the results were promising—some of their compounds succeeded in reducing pain, inflammation, and certain skin cancers. In fact, one of his compounds, JWH-133 (named after Huffman), shrank brain tumors and regressed non-melanoma skin cancers in mice—a very exciting discovery for Huffman.

Then things started to go south, as Huffman had feared. He published his positive findings, but the chemical formulas, some very easy to reproduce with common substances, fell into the hands of the wrong people and the fake marijuana craze had begun. [Read more…]

Supreme courthouseAccording to the news, there is an epidemic of campus sexual assault in our nation. To help curb this problem, federal and state legislation are cracking down.
