Pennsylvania's response to the opioid epidemic

With the opioid epidemic showing no signs of slowing down, lawmakers and state officials are increasingly shifting focus toward putting a halt to drug trafficking and keeping a keener eye on the types of drugs used in overdoses. However, recent news shows that Pennsylvania's recording of drug types in fatal overdoses is lacking. How effective are current efforts to combat illegal drug trafficking, and might the state see a change in the ways it tracks cases involving drugs and overdoses?

Lesser-known unexpected expenses

Contrary to popular belief, bankruptcy does not happen simply because of shopping addictions. Instead, countless Pennsylvania residents teeter on the brink of financial crises when unexpected expenses arise. Of course, student loan debt, unemployment and divorce are also to blame, but there are other, lesser-known events that can factor into the decision to file bankruptcy.

How are drugs classified?

If you or someone you know has been charged with a criminal offense in Pennsylvania related to a controlled substance, there are many things you will want to know about as you or your friend get into the criminal defense process. One of the things to understand is that different drugs are rated differently by the government and that the particular rating associated with a substance may contribute to the actual charge a person may face.

Can you be the legal guardian of someone over 18?

When a person turns eighteen in Pennsylvania, they become legally responsible for themselves. However, there are some situations in which a person isn't mentally, physically, or emotionally capable of this. In these situations, you may wish to become their legal guardian instead. Schimizzi Law, LLC, can help you learn the ins and outs of petitioning for guardianship so that you can help your loved ones.
