Swatting: A crime California parents should warn their kids about

When you were younger and your parents educated you about the use of 911 services, your parents probably emphasized their lecture with one important phrase, "only use it in emergencies." As you entered your teenage years though and learned about pranks, you may have been tempted to call in an emergency to the police as a way to make yourself and your friends laugh.

What laws are most likely to affect you in 2015?

Few people in California expect that the law will stay unchanged for too long. That's because most people know that societal and political pressures are huge driving forces when it comes to bringing in new legislation and casting aside the old.

Is California's compensation for wrongful conviction fair?

Did you know that only 30 states, including California and the District of Columbia, have passed laws that grant compensation payments to people who have served time in prison because of wrongful convictions? This may seem surprising especially when one considers the serious impact a conviction can have on a person's life.

What personal breath tests and speedometers have in common

Most people would never drive a motor vehicle if it did not come equipped with a functional speedometer. That's because, here in the United States, our roads are typically governed by strict speed limits that can lead to tickets if we violate the law. Speedometers help us to make sure we don't do that, making them a useful tool in fighting crime, as some might say.

Why you should think twice before mailing pot through USPS

Despite its growing popularity as a treatment for some disabling health conditions, medical marijuana still isn't legal in every state. Unlike here in California, in many states there is no distinction between medical marijuana and its recreational counterpart, meaning obtaining or possessing the drug in these states is still considered illegal even if there is a medical need for the plant.
