I filed a petition, verification, and memo of points and authorities. They responded and I filed a response as well. How do I get a court date now? The court is telling me I need to file something else but will not tell me what. This is for a writ of mandate challenging a city's actions during... Read more »

Great question! Like many changes in the law, it remains to be seen what will happen in situations like yours. Best thing to do is contact the court. If there is a valid warrant for you, you may be arrested on it, so it's important to address it. And what matters is whether your actions were...Read more »
I don’t know what it means to “be on colors” in Kentucky, and I am not an attorney in Ohio, however cannabis possession in Ohio is unlawful whether in public or your home—possession of under 100 grams remains a misdemeanor. See, generally, https://norml.org/laws/ohio-penalties-2/

I read an article by Forbes magazine which claimed that indiana didn't have the ability to tell the difference between hemp and marijuana. Now if they can how easy is it? Would it take a long time and would it be costly to the state
I have seen the language in the lab work from the State "Marijuana THC percent not determined". Hopefully at some point in the future they would be able and/or interested in trying to determine that percentage.
several small stashes of marijuana were found. My oldest received a simple possession charge. She does not partake in marijuana. If I took a negative hair follicle drug test to court and questioned the fact that the car is not hers, would the charge possibly be dropped?
Daughter needs a competent attorney now to prepare for a Preliminary Hearing. The hair test would be heresay without expert testimony, but is something to tell the DA. She does not want a drug conviction on her record. It sounds like a consent search also.
