Morning After Pill Now Available to Those Fifteen or Older

Tuesday, April 30th, 2013

SAN DIEGO, California (April 30, 2013) – According to an article by CBS8, the government is finally allowing those who are fifteen years old to buy the over-the-counter morning after pill. Age restrictions will be lifted on the emergency contraceptive due to a court-imposed deadline that will go into effect in a few days. Meanwhile middle ground has been found with the fifteen and older rule. Plan B One-Step is sold behind the counter at pharmacies, and in the past a person had to be at least seventeen to buy it. Early this month U.S. District Judge Edward Korman criticized Obama for imposing the 17-year-old age requirement. Judge Korman ordered an end to all age restrictions for Plan B by this Monday. However, the FDA is stating that the decision made by Korman was independent of the court and wasn’t intended to change the law. Many women’s reproductive rights groups oppose requiring an age limit for Plan B. The reason for the age limit is because many people are concerned that the pill works as an abortion pill because it can sometimes prevent a fertilized egg from attaching to the uterus.

How Stoned is Too Stoned to Drive in California?

Tuesday, April 30th, 2013

SAN DIEGO, California (April 30, 2013) – In 1996 California Voters legalized marijuana and ever since this time, there has been an increase in driving stoned. There are many aspects surrounding this issue however. It is still very unclear how stoned is too stoned to drive? A TV station in Seattle tested this question and conducted an experiment where three drivers were put on a track and closely monitored. All three drivers were heavy medical marijuana users. Each driver was first tested while just a little bit stoned. The drivers did okay under police supervisors, although one driver did nick a stop sign. Then the three drivers were asked to smoke a little bit more pot, and they were starting the feel the effects more strongly. One driver almost hit the camera man, and another driver hit a cone. It was concluded that smoking pot definitely causes one’s inhibitions to go down. In California, however, there is no legal limit for driving under the influence of marijuana. The executive director of MADD of San Diego feels laws need to be put into place that place a limit on how much pot one can smoke before driving. S However, San Diego DUI defense attorney Cole Casey states, “”It’s much more difficult to establish a threshold with marijuana, because tolerance plays such a big issue into it.” So until a law is established, many pot smokers are still legally allowed to take to the roads.

“This is a scary issue because there are so many people that smoke medical marijuana in California. There needs to be laws to accompany this fact,” states West Seegmiller, founder of The Seegmiller Law Firm, a personal injury law firm in San Diego.

 

 

 

 

 

Disabled Patients Sustain Injuries at Local Care Center, Stirring Abuse Allegations

Tuesday, April 30th, 2013

LAS VEGAS, Nevada (April 30, 2013) – According to an article today in 8NewsNow.com, police reports have begun to accumulate which claim abuse of developmentally disabled patients at a local care center. Photos are depicting these patients with lacerations, chipped teeth, and bloodied faces. The same state employee names keep showing up on the police reports over and over again.

One patient, Mike Hicks, sustained a traumatic brain injury that left him mentally disabled and assigned to a state run care center. Hicks, 26, sustained a large scar on the top of his head that greatly distresses his mother, Patsy Hicks. She is very worried that someone has been physically abusing her son. Hicks is a patient at The Las Vegas Desert Regional Center, a state run facility that cares for the intellectually disabled.

Mike Hicks claims that he has heard noises coming from next door to his room and he went to report the noise to the supervisor on duty, Harry Daniels. Daniels was apparently startled as Hicks approached him and Daniels then whacked Hicks in the head with a heavy hole puncher, leaving a large cut and eventual scar. Hicks was never taken to the hospital but was taken to a doctor two hours after his injury. Hick’s mother was never called. Attorney Adam Graff now represents three of the families who are alleging abuse of their adult children. In addition An independent investigation was conducted by the Bureau of Health Care Quality and Compliance and an internal investigation was administered by DRC. Both investigations found the accusations regarding abuse to be unsubstantiated.

“This is an egregious situation and it’s really the staff’s word against the patients’ word. Unfortunately the staff can claim that the patients are just “crazy” and lying. In reality it seems that justice is not being served. There must be a more thorough and even covert investigation in order to have enough evidence,” states West Seegmiller, founder of The Seegmiller Law Firm, a personal injury firm in Las Vegas.
