Drugs, college and police: Not always a good combination

Countless issues may impact your college career. You hopefully chose a South Carolina school that's a good fit for your personality as well as your academic goals.

What is a restraining order?

If you have been physically abused or assaulted by another person in South Carolina, then you have the right to protect yourself legally. One option is to get a restraining order against the person.

Can crash collision systems stop distracted drivers?

No matter how many precautions you take behind the wheel or how closely you adhere to the speed limit, you cannot avoid encountering distracted drivers.

It is important to note that under this law, medical marijuana would mean marijuana byproducts that are not psychedelic. In layman's terms that means it does not get the user "high." The benefits from these products are specifically for relief from medical symptoms. While many support the act, there are also many who do not, including law enforcement.
