It has been a year since Pennsylvania legalized medical marijuana. However, drivers who are authorized to use medical marijuana must take precautions or they may face driving under the influence or other drug charges. Patients should always carry their medical marijuana cards with them when they drive. This will allow police to treat them the same as other drivers who are taking legally-prescribed drugs. However, drivers using prescription drugs or medical marijuana may be arrested for driving under the influence if they drive when they are impaired from these drugs.
For some couples, it is easy to know when a marriage is over and divorce is the most logical course of action. An act of betrayal or a moment of anger are obvious reasons for wanting to get out of a marriage. However, not every marriage has those defining moments. In fact, many divorcing couples may be unable or unwilling to name a specific reason for their breakup.
Pedestrians have practically no protection against vehicles. This may be illustrated in a recent report issued by the Governors Highway Safety Administration, which found that the number of pedestrian deaths from car accidents and other vehicle crashes in this country last year was the highest number recorded in 30 years. It is also projected that Pennsylvania suffered a record increase in these deaths in 2018.
