Answered on Mar 29, 2017

Not unless you are licensed to sell it as a medicinal product which is unusual as they haven't set up licensing yet. Even then, it's possible that US could prosecute you. You could expect visits from the FBI. You really need to get with an attorney before doing anything like this. Use that attorney at each step of the way. Guess wrong and you could be on a traficking charge. State AND federal even!

Q: Can I file my own personal injury claim with my apartment's insurance company without a lawyer?

Answered on Mar 29, 2017

You can but it would be unwise as you'd end up talking to them, your case has certain issues, and you have severe injuries.You need to talk to a member of the Pennsylvania Assn for Justice--we all give free consults, and cases are taken on a contingent basis so you don't have to pay up front. If you don't know any, give me a phone call and I can give you some names.Do not give statements to the insurance in the meantime

Q: The other day I got into an accident and rear-ended a lady and I ended up getting a speeding ticket

1 Answer | Asked in Car Accidents for Texas on
Answered on Mar 29, 2017

Yup, because it's presumed you were driving at a speed that would not allow you to stop within the assured clear distance ahead. Your defense is not going to be "I didn't get the distance right" or "I wasn't looking." Possible to defend but you want to talk to a lawyer. Ideally it can get dropped to a non-point. Photos may help if damage minimal.
