Federal drug trafficking penalties are severe

In addition to being charged in state court, someone who is accused of selling or otherwise delivering controlled substances may also find themselves the target of a federal investigation and, ultimately, a criminal charge under the laws of the United States. The federal penalties for drug crimes involving trafficking are severe, even for a first-time offense.

Schools must not get duped by the "high-functioning" label

Many children in Mobile, Alabama, have a condition which commonly gets referred to as a high-functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder. Conditions like Asperger's Syndrome and other disorders fall under this label. While it is true that people with higher-functioning autism may be able to live, learn and, ultimately, work in society at a higher rate than those with more other forms of autism, the label high-functioning can lead to a lot of misunderstandings.

Alabama's drug paraphernalia laws can trap the unwary

Like other states, Alabama law criminalizes the possession of and transfer items that are referred to as drug paraphernalia. These items can be household products and other common goods, including things like rolling paper, pipes, weighing scales, blenders and the like.
