Accident claims rise with pot use

Kentucky drivers who may be taking to the road this summer on their vacation journeys and who may be driving to an area where marijuana is allowed to be used recreationally will want to pay special attention to signs of potentially impaired drivers. To date, Massachusetts, Maine, the District of Columbia, Alaska, Nevada, Colorado and all three west coast states have legalized pot for recreational purposes. However, that does not mean drivers are supposed to get behind the wheel of a car after consuming the drug yet it seems that many may be doing just that. 

Woman accuses fellow National Guard members of sexual assault

When accusations of sexual assault are made, a moral conflict may ensue amongst many in Richmond. The immediate reaction may be to have sympathy for the alleged victim, while at the same time, there may also be a hesitancy to rush to judgement in condemning the accused. Many cases of alleged sexual assault involve encounters between people with an established relationship where one may act upon perceived indicators of the other’s desires to escalate their level of intimacy, only to later be accused of forcing him or herself upon the other. In such a case, all facts surrounding the incident should be considered when attempting to determine the true nature of an encounter.
