Soulja Boy charged with possession of marijuana

Residents of Silver Spring are familiar with the work of the legendary hip-hop star Soulja Boy, but they may be shocked to hear how a recent trip home ended badly for the rapper. Instead of relaxing or spending time with family and friends, he was arrested for the alleged possession of marijuana. He has told reporters, however, that he is innocent.

Police stop elderly driver and insist on search

No one has an obligation to help police investigate a crime and if you are being stopped by a Washington, D.C., officer, it is wise to say as little as possible. There are certain rights that police officers cannot and should not infringe upon, such as the right to refuse an unreasonable search. Typically, police officers must have some reason to search a car, house or person, but if they conduct a search without a good enough reason, judges may throw out criminal charges.

Experts say more American workers use prescription drugs

After the recent arrest of 37 people at a Philadelphia Boeing plant, experts believe there is an increase in prescription drug use by American workers. While many employees are already subject to an invasive drug test prior to being hired, these reports could lead to more random drug tests for current Silver Spring employees.

Unclear legislation makes it hard to sell medical marijuana

With the somewhat recent legalization of medical marijuana in Washington, D.C., there are still some unanswered questions of how marijuana can be sold when marijuana distribution is still a federal drug crime. While District medical marijuana growers haven't run into this problem yet, distributors in several of the 16 states in which medical marijuana is legal have had trouble working with banks. Many banks are hesitant to deposit money from marijuana dispensaries because it is unclear whether the federal government may classify it as money laundering.
