Q: My school professor discriminated against me but the dean in charge of the investigation closed the case. What can I do?

During the semester, the professor denied multiple verified disability related academic accommodations.

Louis George Fazzi answered on Jul 15, 2019

First of all, provide sufficient details to permit a reasoned analysis of your situation. Conclusory statements are unhelpful. Facts and details are most important, but nothing is more important than a chronological statement of who did what, to whom, when, where and how.

Q: May rent paid late, adding $25, paid May & June on May 26. Didn’t pay $25 late fee. Can they charge another $25?

I paid May’s storage a few weeks late. Was charged $25 late fee. When I paid May, I also paid June. But since I still had that u paid $25 late fee, they charged me another $25 since I didn’t pay the $25. It’s a late fee for an unpaid late fee. Is that legal?

Q: I’m 19 & I have my MMID I was wondering if I can now legally purchase paraphernalia like bongs in regular tobacco shop

I understand that the law is 21 to purchase tobacco products but I’d like to know if anything related to marijuana is now available to me in common smoke shops.

I believe the age at which you can legally buy marijuana and its related products is still 21 years old in California. I believe it is the same whether you want to get alcohol or marijuana. I'm unsure if the same rules apply to medical marijuana, however. One way to find out is to go into a medical... Read more »
