Many people think of drunk driving charges as being associated with only alcohol. These individuals might not realize that they can also face drunk driving charges after taking drugs. Not just illegal drugs, but even legal drugs can lead to a drunk driving charge.

The point to remember when it comes to drunk driving charges is that anything that impairs your ability to drive can lead to a drunk driving charge. It doesn't matter where the substance came from if it has this impact.

When it comes to determining if someone is impaired by drugs, it isn't as easy as it is with a person who is drunk. Instead, police might have to rely on testimony from the person as well as field sobriety testing and chemical tests.

A Wisconsin woman was arrested for allegedly possessing 2.36 ounces of heroin on Oct. 8 in Darien. The woman has now been accused of even more crimes following a thorough investigation by authorities. In addition to the current charges, the woman has a previous history of drug-related convictions.

According to police, the 23-year-old woman had over 2 ounces of heroin in a total of 134 individual baggies. The street value of the contraband material is believed to be $6,700. As a result of the allegations and evidence, she has been charged with felony-level controlled substance possession, felony-level controlled substance possession with the intent to deliver and possession with the intent to deliver inside 1,000 feet of a public park.

If convicted of these felony offenses, the woman could spend anywhere from six to 30 years in prison. She is currently being held on bond of $250,000. Authorities found approximately $847 in cash belonging to the woman at the time of the arrest; however, police would not permit the woman to use this money to help pay for the 10 percent of her bond that would lead to her release. Authorities said that they first needed to determine that the cash was not drug money.

After the brain gets addicted to an opioid medication, it can take as long as two years for it to fully recover once the abuse of the drug stops. However, the first 90 days of recovery tend to be the most critical to ensure that the individual stays sober.

According to a leading addiction expert, creating a solid foundation of sobriety takes time and diligence. For this reason, anyone who tries to stop taking an addictive substance is encouraged to have 90 days of contact with a professional addiction therapist by way of an intensive outpatient program or a partial hospitalization program.

Experts don't know a lot about why it takes 90 days to get past the most difficult time and they don't know why it can take two years to fully heal. They just know that the process takes this amount of time with most people.

The psychedelic drug LSD (d-Lysergic Acid Diethylamide) is illegal throughout the United States. Under federal drug laws, LSD is classified as a Schedule I narcotic, meaning that an LSD-related conviction will come with the severest punishments on par with those associated with heroin.

Because the federal government has classified LSD as one of the most dangerous kinds of drugs, a first-time conviction for the least serious LSD possession offense will be punished with a minimum of $1,000 in fines and a maximum of three years in prison.

LSD sales convictions will be punished based on the amount of LSD involved and the number of previous convictions. Even with a first-offense LSD sales conviction of less than 10 grams, the offense could result in a five- to 40-year sentence and fines as high as $2 million. If more LSD or a second offense is involved, it's difficult to believe, but someone could easily face a lifetime conviction for a nonviolent LSD conviction.

Certain areas of the country have legalized marijuana for medical and recreational use. However, in Wisconsin, it continues to be illegal with the exception of non-psychoactive medical CBD oil, which is used to treat a limited range of conditions.

In spite of the illegality of marijuana, some individuals are selling and cultivating the plant unlawfully. As such, state and federal law enforcement officials are actively investigating any suspected cultivation and sale activity.

However, police do not always arrest individuals appropriately for these offenses. For example, you might have been accused of marijuana cultivation simply because you were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Or, you might have been accused of marijuana sales when you were not selling the drug, but merely in possession of it.
