Q: 

Medical marijuana?

A:  It''s an issue to watch in the coming election year, there are candidates both for and against. There are only 5 people left from the original federal marijuana program. "Ironically, the U.S. federal government currently grows and provides cannabis for a small number of patients. In 1976 the federal government created the Investigational New Drug (IND) compassionate access research program to allow patients to receive up to nine pounds of cannabis from the government each year. Today, five surviving patients still receive medical cannabis from the federal government, paid for by federal tax dollars." Never know what could happen...

Q: 

Why is marijuana still illegal in the United states?

A:  The question of why marijuana is -still- illegal, given what we know about it today, is a much better question, and easier to answer, than why it was made illegal in the first place. President Nixon declared a ''War on Drugs'' in the 1970s. This changed the entire way we saw drugs and the problem of drug use in the US. We no longer saw addiction as a medical problem but as a criminal problem. When I was in high school in the 1960s we were taught of the dangers of drugs, warned against addiction, told where to get help, but hardly a word was mentioned about legal consequences and penalties. Today kids are taught about drugs by THE POLICE! The DARE program has cops going to schools to lecture kids about drugs as an entirely legal issue! I believe the real purpose of...

Q: 

Do you smoke? - In an interview

A:  Yes, an interviewer may ask if you smoke. No, it does not violate either federal or Texas discrimination laws. i only know missouri law but maybe this will help you. im pasting a statute from the missouri revised statutes http://www.moga.state.mo.us/statutes/C200-299/2900000145.HTM maybe this can help you on where to look in the texas statutes There are no statutes. Both federal and Texas law are silent on this issue. While smoking is a protected characteristic in some states, Texas is not one of them....

Q: 

Suing The Government

A:  Someone else has to answer your marijuana question. Regarding the alcohol question, the seller has every right to card you if they suspect you to be under 21. It's not a "prejudical practice." If the seller makes an illegal sale, HE can get in trouble. Showing an ID card doesn't take an exorbitant amount of time IF you show it without argument. Nor does it imply that you are part of the group of "law-breakers, irresponsible individuals or irresponsible parents." (BTW--Since you've added parents to the list of wrongdoers, that pretty much eliminates your age theory.). Consult local counsel. . "There are two issues by which I would like to sue the United states government: 1.

Q: 

Why are politicians against legalizing weed?

A:  You will note that most of those who are against it are receiving large contributions (legal bribes) from lobbying groups who represent drug companies and other special interests. Some of these special interests may be traced back to people who make huge profits from dealing illegal drugs. Drug companies don't like it because it is too cheap and can be used to replace some of their chemicals which are very profitable to them. Then there is the hemp industry. growing industrial hemp is illegal in the US due to the stupid marijuana laws, even though its THC content is almost zero. Hemp can be used to make very nice paper and fabric, and therefore the pulpwood and cotton producers hate it. And they have...

Q: 

Napping During Lunch Breaks

A:  "Is there a federal or NY state law against employees napping during official breaks ?" No, but that does not mean the employer has to allow her to do it.  They are free to have a policy that they don't permit napping on the job site even if clocked out.   "Furthermore, can the employee sue the company ?" Can she?  Sure.  Would she win?  No.  She has no legal basis to sue.  Unless she is diagnosed with a bonafide illness such as narcolepsy where strategic napping during the day is one of the accepted treatments the employer is under no obligation to let her nap on her lunch time.  Even if she has a bonafide illness that required napping she would have to request accommodation...

Q: 

Is it legal to withold pay for accrued vaction time?

A:  I believe that in FL you are NOT entitled to any accrued vacation time as a general rule. Now if you are entitled to take your vacation at any time --I suppose you can do so--and they may just terminate you --and they can cut off vacation pay as well if they do so but hey, you are entitle to try? Do you have a new job or are you merely leaving.   Is this legal under federal or Florida employment laws?   Yes.  Neither federal nor Florida laws require the pay out of vacation upon separation. It is legal under both federal and Florida laws. Nothing in the law of any state requires that you...

Q: 

At-Will versus In-House Policies

A:  "If an employer chooses to have an in-house policy, such as 4 strikes your out, do they have to adhere to that policy?" No, and that includes "large offenses". "Is it against both federal and CA state laws for an employer to restrict employees from communicating amongst each other about work conditions, work policies, wages, commissions, etc?" Don't know about CA, but a blanket prohibition of employees against talking with each other about working conditions and wages would probably be unenforceable because of the National Labor Relations Act ... even if the policy wasn't really created as an anti-union measure. This would be something to discuss that with the CA labor...

Q: 

Can I fight this Motion to Revoke warrant for my arrest?--Q

A:  1) Was the warrant-less probation visit (house ransacked) legal without my probation officer knowing and me not being there? I do not think any police officer can search your alleged residence when you are not there without a warrant and have anything stand up. 2) If the 2 people that were at my houseoffice had access to my computer area and the sheriff proclaims to smell smoke upon entering, why were the 2 not arrested if they found shavings of weed. You would have to ask the Sheriff. That is really the wrong question. How do they pin the marijuana on YOU if they were in the house and you weren''t? That''s a much better question because that one gets you off. 3) They were ready to put me in jail with nurse care. On a motion to revoke...

Q: 

Employer taking deductions without agreement

A:  Laymans read: Generally an employer cannot make lawful deductions from your paycheck w/o your written approval. My read of thier version of they pay for training is that they are trying to rewrite the book so that you pay it--and they hold all the cards. Do you have a contract for your basic employment status? True an offer which is countered generally wipes out the prior offer --but there was never a contract anyway as to this matter since there never wa an acceptance of anything . I think the employer is out to lunch as to unauthorized deductions--unless someplace you agree to same--but I think if pay coy for a good while before I blew any whistles. I do NOT know OH law--but I do know in PA if you filed a wage claim for the unauthorized deductions vai L & I and folowed that route if...
