New Mexico and the legalization of marijuana debate

As a whole, the nation has seen a gradual change in the ways it views certain illegal substances. Perhaps reaching the biggest spotlight, marijuana has been the focal topic of debate in recent years. While some New Mexico residents fear a costly fee or even time behind bars, laws in the state appear to be shifting. 

Drunk driver rear ends, kills man

When anyone seeks a driver's license in New Mexico, they generally learn about some of the rules of the road in the state. These rules include those that govern drunk driving. It is illegal to drive a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol content over 0.08 percent. In addition to the laws, many public awareness campaigns highlight the dangers of operating a vehicle after consuming alcohol. Unfortunately, there remain too many people who refuse to put safety first. As such, drunk drivers continue to cause accidents that both injure and even kill innocent people.

Additional car crash consequences

Often, when people envision the consequences of a car wreck, they picture the loss of innocent life or serious injuries that are incredibly painful. While these are certainly a part of many accidents, it is essential to remember that these wrecks can shatter lives in other ways also. For example, a motor vehicle accident victim may have their entire life thrown into chaos after a wreck, even after they have recovered from an injury they suffered in the crash.

Is there an alternative to monthly alimony?

When you are going through a divorce in New Mexico, you find it is hard enough all on its own, without having to be reminded of your ex-spouse every month when you get a check in the mail. Of course, you want and need that alimony payment to get back on your feet and build a new life. If only you could have the money without the reminder of a bad marriage every month.
