What To Do If You're Arrested In Possession Of Illegal Drugs

Nobody wants to get busted for possession of illegal drugs, but at a time when you can buy pretty much everything you want within one mile’s distance from your home, the chances are many of you will experience issues like this at some point. Of course, taking drugs is bad, and we’d never encourage anyone to do it, but the human race is very complex, and thousands of people are arrested every single year for possession, so avoiding the issues to incredibly silly. You could be at a music festival with a bit of pot, in your car with some cocaine or even in your own home with friends using LSD. Either way, if the police come a-knocking, you need to understand the procedure to ensure you’re treated fairly.

The thing with a workplace injury is you never really know when or how it might occur. It could strike at any time and when that time happens, you need to be prepared and have done your research so you can become a survivor and not a victim. If you’re hurt while at work whether you fall down or something falls on you, it’s best to report the injury to your supervisor right away. If you have to leave the workplace to get medical help, your employer will pay you the wages for the day of the injury. You’re required to file a claim with the WSIB as soon as possible after the injury. Your boss will also need to file a Form 7 claim with the WSIB. Your main focus should be on getting better and feeling better. That is why a workplace injury lawyer from a firm like the Goodman Law Group is required. (more…)
