Virginia visitors might have to leave their guns at home

Gun laws in the U.S. is a hot topic right now. President Obama is taking steps to try to control who gets firearms in this country with more vigorous background checks and regulations. Virginia is also taking steps to control who can carry guns in the state specifically. 

Drug charges go further than just the drugs

Many people make the common mistake of assuming that the crimes they can be charged with are limited to the illegal contraband they carry, like cocaine or heroin. However, the police may also arrest you for possessing certain items that are associated with the use or production of drugs. These crimes are called drug paraphernalia offenses. It is also important to note that drugs do not necessarily have to be present for you to be charged with a drug paraphernalia crime.
