  • Florida county proposes citations for pot possession

    Tuesday Jun 16 | via CBS News 

    People caught with small amounts of marijuana could soon get a civil citation instead of a jail term in Florida's largest county, which may become the first in the state to treat marijuana possession as a non-criminal act. The Miami-Dade County Commission is considering a proposal to let police issue $100 civil citations for possessing small amounts of marijuana as an alternative to a misdemeanor arrest.

Medical hold on Drivers license after second Dui.
i have two duis one in 12/09 and other in 05/10. My suspension over in November this year. Since then, i 've completed all court ordered requirements dui school, treatment and community service. I applied to get hardship license and was told i have medical hold on my license. I did receive therapy between 2008-2010. Recently, i found therapist to fill out medical forms that DMV gave me,but forms expired already. I only had 45 days to get form filled out . So i have to request new medical forms from DMV. My therapist agreed to fill out medical forms, but he needs to see me two more visits. By July, i will get those forms filled out. The DMV told me once they received those medical forms it'll take them another three more months until i drive. Do i need lawyer to help me or i have to wait?

Smart Start Violation?
I got a DUI in 2012 and completed my probation in October 2014. I bought a car and had the IID installed in March of 2015 for the duration of 6 months. I've had no violations/issues whatsoever until this morning. I was running late for work and in my hurry and forgot NOT to rinse my mouth with mouthwash. When I tried to start the car and blew into the device it said violation and temp lock. I got out of the car and went inside to rinse my mouth. 5 min later I tried to start the car again, blew into the device and this time it was PASS. It asked me to do the test again 5-10 minutes after that which was again a PASS. I called Smart Start but didn't get much useful information. Are there any consequence for what happened? I am worried. Thank you so much in advance!

How Florida deals with out of state revocation of privilege if it is not for DUI or DWI but for 3 speeds in 18 months?
Accordingly to Florida law there is no such thing like revocation for 3 speeding tickets in 18 months period. In my case this will be equal to 12 points in case I loose at all 3 hearings. To my understanding, by Florida law they should simply suspend my license for 30 days because of accumulation of 12 points in one year. Or it doesn't matter? If your privilege becomes revoked somewhere, they do not care by what reason and revoke your license too? Does anybody know?
Florida has reciprocity with most other states. So if your home state suspends your driving privileges then there is a...
