Changing marijuana views and nebraska law

Whether it is because of the country's gradual shift in attitudes or the fact that legalization is occurring in states across the map, marijuana has been under the spotlight in recent years. There is certainly no shortage of discussion on the matter, as the drug has sparked both support and criticism nationwide. Most states that have legalized marijuana are in the western region of the country, yet many predict that this trend will spread in the near future.

Meth involved in recent drug sentencing

For people who may have serious drug addictions in Nebraska, a first drug arrest may sadly not be the last.

Nebraska's hidden opioid epidemic

The opiod epidemic has been in full swing in America for over half a decade, as the uses of prescription and non-prescription drugs are currently climbing to an all-time high.

However, remaining steadfast in the fact that the criminal justice system ensures everyone a fair opportunity to defend against criminal charges is important at these times.

Don't get caught unaware of what asset forfeiture means for you

If you stand accused of a crime or of being part of a criminal enterprise, law enforcement officials may seize your assets.

It doesn't matter whether you are guilty or whether you owned certain assets prior to your supposed crime.
