Are chemical drug tests accurate?

The police pull you over, claim to find illegal drugs in your car, and use a field test to examine them right there on the side of the road. The chemical -- cobalt thiocyanate -- starts out pink and then turns blue. That means, the police tell you, that the substance was cocaine. You're arrested immediately.

Domestic violence could rear its ugly head at any point

In a relationship, you know there are good times and bad times. You know there are times when you or your partner say things you don't mean. Unfortunately, there are situations in which things go too far. In this case, it's possible that your partner could accuse you of domestic violence.

Assemblyman proposes field test for stoned drivers

While the smoke has hardly settled from the victory celebrations of California's marijuana smokers' November victory to legalize the recreational use of pot in the state, Assemblyman Tom Lackey has thrust up a new roadblock that could land those who smoke and drive behind bars.

Drug offenses and diversion programs

Every drug charge, even those that appear minor on the surface, can impact the rest of your life. This holds true both on a personal and professional level. For this reason, you need to understand your legal rights should you be charged with a drug offense. With the right information on your side, it's easier to employ a defense strategy that may help you avoid the most serious consequences.

Drug crimes, dependency and money-driven crimes

Crime is often an act of desperation. It's nothing that the person would have done if he or she had not had outside factors to consider. There is a very interesting connection that can be found when looking at drug crimes, as the use of drugs and the need for money to purchase more often leads to other crimes.
