  • Actual Possession – possession of something with them having immediate control

drug courts a new approach
Drug Courts: A New Approach

Traditional court processes were neither deterring substance abusers nor addressing the medical, social, and economic problems associated with drug abuse

  • Drug Court – a specialized court designed to deal with defendants charged with violating laws of possession and use of controlled substances. This emphasizes rehabilitation of offenders
intoxication offenses
Intoxication Offenses

Congress enacted the 18th Amendment, which was ratified by the states in 1919. This amendment, referred to as Prohibition, made unlawful the manufacture, sale, or transportation of intoxicating liquors within the U.S.

Prohibition was repealed by the 21st Amendment, ratified in 1933. State and local governments retain the authority to ban or regulate the manufacture, sale and use of alcohol within their borders.
