Why is fentanyl such a popular drug?

Nebraska State Patrol troopers recently made the largest drug bust in state history during a traffic stop in April, according to National Public Radio. It is also one of the biggest seizures in the entire U.S. What troopers thought was cocaine has turned out to be pure fentanyl—118 pounds of it. That amount of fentanyl is lethal enough to kill over 26 million people and is being linked to overdose deaths nationwide. The synthetic opioid is estimated to be between 50 and 100 times more powerful than morphine, and between 30 and 50 times stronger than heroin.

Can police search your apartment building with a drug dog?

Contrary to what television shows may imply, police in Nebraska cannot simply burst into your home with a drug dog and search it for drugs.

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. Nebraska's laws may be strict, but will those laws last? 

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. This can be related to the lack of people getting proper help and treatment for their drug problems and instead having the focus be on penalizing what is seen as unwanted behavior. Such an approach can be controversial among those who advocate instead for better support for defendants.

Nebraska's hidden opioid epidemic

The opioid 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. Painkillers such as oxycodone, fentanyl, and hydrocodone have plagued the country, and accidental overdoses are now the leading cause of death of Americans under 50 years of age. Unfortunately, Nebraska is not exempt from these alarming statistics. 

Multiple people accused in alleged multistate drug ring

People in Nebraska who have read or heard media reports about criminal arrests involving drugs know that there are many details not always included in these reports. This reality can make things difficult for defendants as the few details that are provided may make it easy for readers or listeners to all but conclude guilt right away. 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.
