We are finally putting winter in the rear view window and warmer weather has arrived. The lock downs have seemed to diminish to the point where we can safely resume more of a pre- lockdown lifestyle. The urge to get out and enjoy enjoy yourself should be tempered with a dose of reality. The rules certainly have not changed. Be careful! Do not drink and drive! We are also witnessing a flood of fetanyl laced drugs locally. Quite often other drugs are lethally laced! If you have or suspect you might have a dependency problem get help!
If you are detained and/or arrested you have the absolute right to consult an attorney. If you have been told that consulting an attorney can only make things worse you’ve been misadvised. If you can potentially be charged with a misdemeanor or a felony or even a violation you are better off consulting with an attorney. You have a right to remain silent. No negative inference can be made against you if you excercise a constitutional right. No matter is too small.
A DWI/DUI can have disastrous consequences on your life. These include, but are not limited to, loss of driving privileges, incarceration, a criminal record, mandatory counseling, alcohol interlock devices, probation, loss of employment, loss of future employment opportunity etc.
Similarly, a drug charge stemming from marijuanna, cocaine, meth, heroin, fentanyl etc. can wreak havoc upon your life, aside from the fact that many of these drugs can kill you. The courts are being inundated with drug cases.
If you have a problem please get help. Aside from the severe criminal consequences, many of these drugs are adulterated. Fetanyl is flooding the market. You can die!
