Responding To Road Rage

As the metro area continues to grow and road construction struggles to keep up with the increase in traffic, "road rage" incidents have become increasingly common. As traffic slows and tempers flare, it is important to know the steps that you should take as the victim of an aggressive driver and the risks you face should you be the one to lose your cool.

Junk Science In Court

"Junk science" isn't limited to the non-FDA approved supplements that claim one drop of their magical secret formula will make you bigger, stronger, faster, taller, smarter, and happier. As it turns out, much of the police work on shows like "CSI" has about as much validated scientific research behind it as the latest too-good-to-be-true scientific breakthrough to hit the late-night TV informercial circuit.

How Truthful Are Lie Detectors?

From the moment that John Augustus Larson invented the lie detector in 1921, the device has had more than its share of scrutiny and outright controversy. With fine-tuning from protégé Leaonarde Keeler, the University of California-Berkeley medical student Berkeley Police Department officer patented it on January 13, 1931.

MAGIC MUSHROOMS LEGAL IN DENVER

With the passage of Initiated Ordinance 301 by a slim margin, Denver has become the first city in the United States to "decriminalize" the personal possession and personal use of "magic mushrooms"- that is, fungal matter that contain the hallucinogenic compound psilocybin, psilocin, baeocystin, or nor-baeocystin. The new ordinance went into effect with the certification of the vote passing the ordinance on May 16th, 2019.

LSD, COCAINE, ECSTASY, MDMA, HEROIN NOT A FELONY IN COLORADO

Colorado has taken yet another step towards sensible, progressive drug policy with Governor Pollis signing into law House Bill 19-1263, which "de-felonizes" the mere possession of many common drugs and modifies the sentences for drug misdemeanor charges to focus on treatment rather than punishment.

Why Are They Acting Like I'm Guilty?

In criminal defense the right to be presumed innocent is one of the most important constitutional rights an accused person has against the power of the government. It is one of the things that sets our country apart from places Like China, the Middle East, or even the European Union. But one of the most misunderstood aspects of this sacred right that this is a right that an accused is afforded in a jury trial. In other words, once there are twelve peers sworn to uphold the law and follow the rules, you are presumed innocent. But until then, everyone, most especially the police will presume you are guilty and treat you as such.
