Insys Therapeutics the center of conspiracy theory

Insys Therapeutics is facing trouble in court over allegations that it participated in a national conspiracy to bribe physicians and pharmacists to prescribe Sybsys, a mouth-spray version of fentanyl, to people who didn't need it. The opioid medication was launched in 2012, but it didn't do as well as expected. The drug, which is a potent painkiller, could be fueling part of the nation's drug epidemic.

Does the statute of limitations apply to felonies?

Under Floridian law, prosecutors have time limits in almost all types of cases. The exceptions to that rule are for violent cases in which someone was killed and the accused could face charges that result in a death penalty felony, felony punishable by life in prison or perjury in an official proceeding that is tied to a death penalty case.

Marijuana is not totally decriminalized in Florida

The strange thing about marijuana laws is that federal law states one thing, but many state laws say another. Under federal law, you may not possess, manufacture, sell, distribute or use marijuana for any reason. If you live in Florida, however, state law says it's okay to use cannabis medicinally. There are strict regulations governing the process, but if you satisfy eligibility requirements and adhere to protocol, you would not necessarily be breaking the law if you were to smoke a joint.
