Local Kentucky Law Firm Pushes For The Decriminalization Of Marijuana In The State
May 23, 2019
There is no denying that Kentucky’s drug and criminal justice policies are too punitive. This year, it was estimated that state prisons will officially run out of jail space with an inability to take in new inmates. Many jails are at 150-200% capacity with some local jails reaching as high as 300% capacity. Unfortunately, the Commonwealth has spared no mercy in making marijuana arrests. Approximately 16 arrests are made every day for marijuana related charges. There are actually more arrests for pot violations than arrests for violent crimes such as homicide, arson, and forcible sex. Decriminalizing marijuana would help to end mass incarceration and free up prison space. Decriminalization would also put an end to institutionalized racism. Despite usage rates being relatively equal between races, African Americans are six times more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession than White Americans in Kentucky. The racial divide in arrests has increased 145.8% since...
New Study Highlights The Road Safety Risks Of Legalizing Recreational Marijuana In New York
May 23, 2019
There are certainly benefits to legalizing the use of marijuana for recreational purposes. States receive more tax revenue. An undue burden is lifted off the judicial system for marijuana crimes and crime is reduced with the collapse of the black market for the drug. In the past few months the state of New York has been swept up in debate over the legalization with the proposal of the Cannabis Regulation & Taxation Act. As with all decisions, it is not enough to consider the benefits of legalization alone. The benefits must also be weighed against the cons. The attorneys at Siler & Ingber, LLP have helped accident victims recover from crashes caused by drugged drivers. “We’ve seen these types of crashes have terrible, long-term impacts on drivers and their families. Many if not all of these drugged driving crashes are preventable,” said managing partner, Ronald Ingber. “When we heard talk of legalization, we feared these types of crashes might increase. We...

Como una Ciudad Sitiada
May 21, 2019
Juan Felipe Lara Fernández Desde que tenemos conocimiento de la humanidad como cuerpo organizado, las confrontaciones eran parte de la vida común de cualquier grupo étnico o social. Las ciudades erigieron muros cada vez más sofisticados para preservarse de los ataques de las otras ciudades o etnias enemigas. Cuando una de ellas era atacada, simplemente se encerraba dentro de sus muros y se preparaba para un largo periodo de sitio que implicaba desabastecimiento, hambre, ruina. Para el atacante implicaba, perseverancia y sobre todo esfuerzo en mantener a sus fuerzas animadas, ya que generalmente se encontraban al descampado y al arbitrio de los elementos naturales, sin cobijo alguno. Era sentarse a esperar que el hambre, la sed o la traición de alguno de los generales de la ciudad, facilitara la puerta secreta por donde entrar y acabar de una vez por todas. Pocas ciudades se rendían por...
