Was your doctor authorized to prescribe your medications?

The rise of prescription drug abuse in Naples (and throughout the rest of the U.S.) also introduced a new term to criminal justice lexicon: "pill mills." Pill mills are clinics where practitioners prescribe higher numbers of narcotic medications than those would expect from a standard practice of the same medical specialty. You trust your doctors implicitly, and thus likely assume that they have the authority to prescribe you the medications they suggest. Knowing for sure may help you know whether or not the prescriptions you have were prescribed lawfully. 

Rest for truckers may create more danger for you

Sharing the road with big rigs is becoming more dangerous, according to the latest report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The number of fatal accidents involving large commercial vehicles rose by nine percent over the previous year. This despite the fact that traffic fatalities overall declined by two percent.

Alcohol's impact on the brain

Most in Naples would claim to know the limitations of their own bodies better than anyone. Thus, they may believe that they are the ones who should be trusted as to their fitness to perform tasks (such as driving). This may lead to assumptions by some that they are able to "hold" alcohol better than others, or that alcohol effects them differently. Unfortunately, research has shown that alcohol tends to be no respecter of persons (or their assumed physical abilities). 

Your day of shopping could end in injury

Going shopping is a pastime that many Florida residents and people visiting the state on vacation enjoy. Whether shopping for yourself, a friend or family member, you may like to go out to various shops when you can and possibly even make a day of your outing. While your main goals may relate to finding the right items, relaxing and generally having a good time, you may not think about the risks of injuries you may face while shopping.

What should new drivers know?

If you have a teen driver in the family, it’s important that he or she is prepared before setting out on the road. That’s why many Florida parents take the time to teach their kids safe driving tips, which can prevent accidents and injury from occurring. Nationwide offers the following advice, so your teen and other drivers will remain protected.

Reviewing Florida's medical marijuana laws

The debate over the use of marijuana for medical purposes has grown significantly in recent years, to the point where many states have enacted laws allowing for it. Florida is one such state, yet a lack of understanding over the guidelines regulating it is still rampant. Misinformation about medical marijuana use could leave you facing drug charges. If you have questions about it, know that you are in a similar position to many in Naples that we here at The Caldarone Law Group, P.A. have assisted. A better understanding of legal medical marijuana use will certainly help you manage such treatment (if you wish to pursue it).
