WHAT ARE POLICE ALLOWED TO DO DURING AN ARREST?

On behalf of Timothy P. Martin of Martin & Kent, L.L.C. posted in Criminal Lawon Wednesday, March 2, 2016.

Arrests are reaching historic levels throughout Chicagoland, including in cities throughout DuPage and Kane Counties. When a person is arrested for a crime, they may be innocent or they may be guilty, but one thing is for sure: They have rights and the police must act within the law or the evidence can be deemed inadmissible in court.

MEDICAL MARIJUANA AND DUI IN ILLINOIS: A LEGAL GRAY AREA

On behalf of Timothy P. Martin of Martin & Kent, L.L.C. posted in DUI on Tuesday, January 12, 2016.

The Illinois Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act has made it legal for individuals with certain illnesses or medical conditions to legally use marijuana and to purchase it from state-sanctioned dispensaries. According to the Illinois Department of Public Health, more than 3,000 people across the state have qualified to purchase and use medical marijuana.

While this law could be a game-changer on many levels, there is at least one area of the law that is in flux. Currently, Illinois does not have objective standards to determine how much medical marijuana is too much to legally drive.
