3 people charged with drug crimes after hotel raid

Three Massachusetts residents were taken into police custody after a SWAT team executed a search warrant at a hotel in Peabody. According to the Peabody Police Chief, the three accused people are suspected of being drug distributors, and police believe that they may have been selling narcotics from the hotel room where they were staying. The accused individuals are a 30-year-old man, a 51-year-old man and a 42-year-old woman, all from Lynn.

No reliable test for marijuana intoxication

When Massachusetts police officers suspect that a driver is intoxicated by alcohol, they often ask the motorist to perform a standard field sobriety test. If the driver has trouble walking in a straight line or reciting the alphabet, the police officer may have a reasonable suspicion that the driver is drunk. A breath test or a blood test can also be used to measure the driver's blood-alcohol content.

Does OUI mean an end to your college career?

Have you ever heard people answer, "partying" when asked what their major is in college? While you likely didn't come all the way to Massachusetts to hit the night clubs for four years, there might be a little truth to the statement in that many college students like yourself enjoy kicking back and relaxing with their schoolmates. Unfortunately, sometimes this leads to a little too much kicking back or, more specifically, tossing back alcohol, which can open up several different cans of trouble.

Massachusetts marijuana laws go into effect

Massachusetts residents are likely aware that a ballot initiative legalizing personal use of marijuana passed in November 2016. As a result, adults who are at least 21 years of age or older are legally allowed to use, possess or purchase a specific amount of marijuana.
