Because of the size of motor vehicles and the speed at which some of them travel, even a simple collision can have serious complications. Unfortunately, two people in Texas are likely considering their criminal defense after they were allegedly involved in an accident that proved fatal.

The incident that resulted in the loss of a life happened on a day in mid-April. According to reports, a red vehicle was headed south in the center lane of a Texas interstate. A black vehicle was following behind. Unfortunately, a third vehicle is said to have struck the black one, causing a collision that ultimately involved all three.

People's romantic relationships are often complex -- often beyond explanation. Despite this complexity, few relationships result in violence. Unfortunately, a man in Texas is likely considering his criminal defense after he was accused of shooting his girlfriend in the leg.

A woman who feels that it is necessary to do so could potentially be on edge, worried about her safety.

Can police arrest you for using medical marijuana?

More states, now including Texas, are beginning to allow the creation and selling of low-dose marijuana medication. At the start of February, a little girl received the very first dose of medical marijuana in Texas. Although this news is a leap of progress for the many patients who are ill and in pain, law enforcement officials will still be on the lookout for possible abuses of the drug.

In truth, even if you tell police that your marijuana is solely for medical purposes, you could still face drug charges depending on the situation. In order to be legal, medical marijuana must fulfill a few requirements according to the Compassionate Use Act.
