Overdose leads to arrest of 32-year-old man

When someone dies as a result of someone else's actions, the person who caused the death is normally held accountable. In the past, drug-related deaths weren't always treated that way, but they are today. If you give someone drugs, you could be held accountable if that person dies or suffers injuries as a result.

Medical marijuana can still result in charges

Ohio does allow for medical marijuana to be used for patients in need. There are things to know, though, especially if you're being accused of a drug crime related to marijuana use. In fall 2018, medical marijuana will be available for the first time ever in Ohio. It will only be allowed to be sold by approved retailers starting in September. Each sale is taxed.

Trial set for Akron board member accused of possessing marijuana

If you remember a previous post, a former Akron school board member had been accused of using opioids and other drug crimes. The man, who has a trial date in early April, still has a pending drug case against him, but he has completed a detoxification program in hopes of reducing the penalties.

Summit County sues drugmakers, distributors for opioid crisis

When you think of someone who commits drug crimes, the last thing that likely comes to mind is the drug producer itself.

Criminal conspiracies: What you need to know

If you're accused of conspiracy, it's vital that you understand exactly what that means. By definition, a criminal conspiracy is when at least two people commit a crime together. It doesn't matter what crime it is. At that point, some action must be taken to actually commit the crime for it to be considered a conspiracy.

Ohio Attorney General wants to see addiction treatment expanded

Ohio and other states have been in the middle of an opioid crisis. More people than ever are getting ahold of strong drugs, like heroin, overdosing and dying. Where people may once have used ecstasy or marijuana, people are now choosing harder drugs and becoming truly addicted.

Entrapment is illegal and could help you win your case

Entrapment is when a government agent provokes a person into committing a crime. For example, if you're in a bar and an officer offers you drugs in a baggie and states that if you deliver them he'll give you $1,000, then that could be considered to be entrapment.
