Penalties for cocaine charges

A person in California who has been accused of illegal activities involving cocaine may want to become familiar with the state's cocaine laws. Since 2000, penalties for cocaine possession have been less severe as a result of Proposition 36. The measure has given non-violent drug offenders the option of receiving drug treatment rather than jail time. Defendants who have prior criminal records may be handed relatively short jail sentences rather than time in a state prison.

Effects of alcohol on California drivers

Each time an individual consumes an alcoholic beverage, his or her blood alcohol content increases by .02 percent. A standard beverage in the United States is 14 grams, which is roughly one beer, one shot of liquor or a glass of wine. After one drink, an individual's BAC is .02 percent, and he or she may notice a small loss of judgment.
