What does Florida's stand-your-ground law state?

In 2005, Florida became the first state in the nation to pass a stand-your-ground law. While others have followed suit since then, many people still don't understand exactly what this law means. Everyone in this state should have at least a basic understanding of it so that they can do what they feel is best for their safety when they are facing imminent danger.

How can you be sure it's safe to drive with your prescriptions?

Whether you've fallen ill or have chronic health issues that you have to attend to, you should be aware that driving isn't always a good idea when you're taking medications. Certain medications can interact with alcohol or cause side effects that make it difficult to drive safely.

Types of felony probation in Florida and noncompliance penalties

People convicted of felony criminal acts in Florida might be sentenced to serve probation instead of having to go to prison. Probation is sometimes referred to as community supervision. When participating in the program, they must ensure that they comply with specific requirements.

Florida doesn't have employment protections for medical marijuana

The availability of medical marijuana in Florida presents a conundrum for some people who might have a condition that can benefit from using it, but who are concerned about how it might impact them in a professional manner. The answer to this isn't always simple, so it might help to understand a few things.

Drugged driving is illegal in Florida, even on legal drugs

When people think about impaired driving, they usually think about alcohol as the impairing substance. This isn't the only substance that can lead to a driver being too intoxicated to drive. Drugs, including marijuana, prescription medications and over-the-counter drugs, can also lead to a person being unable to operate a motor vehicle.
