Enjoy the upcoming holiday, but don't drive home drunk

As the weather gets nicer, people are going to start heading out to outdoor activities with friends. Anyone who is going to out this weekend should take the time now to ensure that they have a safe way home. Trying to drive after having a few drinks could spell disaster for the driver because police are likely going to watch vehicles very closely this weekend thanks to the Cinco de Mayo festivities.

Marijuana possession charges still happen in Arkansas

Marijuana is a drug that is becoming more widely accepted, but it is one that is still considered illegal by the federal government. In Arkansas, you can face criminal charges for having marijuana in your possession if you don't have the drug for medicinal purposes and in a manner that complies with Issue 6; however, this charge isn't associated with the harsh penalties of other drugs like methamphetamine or heroin. This doesn't mean that you can ignore them. Instead, you have to face them head-on.
