How Can Having A Skilled DUI Attorney Help?  Do you think that you are guilty? Do you just want to "get it over with." Do not do this without speaking with a DUI attorney! We speak with people all the time who find themselves in terrible position. Motivated by shame and humiliation, they appear in court and let the court sentence them without the benefit of counsel. Drunk driving charges are one of the most serious charges prosecuted in a municipal court and carry tough mandatory sanctions. Here are just some of the reasons to talk with Charles M. Rowland II right...

“Weed Day” How Did 420 Get It’s Name?

April 20th is Weed Day. I am fascinated by the origin of the term "420" and how it became associated with marijuana.  There are as many stories about its origin as there are people you ask.  Just a short search on Google leads to the following "Weed Day" origin stories. It’s the number of active chemicals in marijuana. It’s teatime in Holland. It has something to do with Hitler’s birthday. It’s those numbers in that Bob Dylan song multiplied. It was like a police code for smoking in progress or something. In 2003, when the California Legislature codified the medical...

Martin Luther King Jr. Day: A Call To Action

Martin Luther King Jr. Day - A Call To Action I am celebrating this Martin Luther King Jr. Day by joining my voice with the chorus who recognize the "War on Drugs" is a racist construct that must be concluded.  Our decades-old war on drugs is a racist conspiracy. It was designed to unfairly incarcerate blacks to profit government agencies and corporate America.   In an article in the Huffington Post, Dylan Ratigan and Russell Simmons wrote, "A Federal law passed in 1986 allowed law enforcement agencies to seize drug money, and use it to supplement their budgets. Grabbing cash connected to drugs...

Happy New Year from Dayton DUI

Here's a New Year's Wish from Charles Rowland and all of us at Dayton DUI.

Happy Holidays From All Of Us At DaytonDUI

From all of us at Dayton DUI, we wish you the happiest of the holiday season. Holiday messages - I always struggle with these  holiday messages. I want to be sincere (see the Longfellow quote). Yet, I do not wish to be overly sentimental (thus, the Muppet video). Then it occurred to me: There are always people who take the holidays a little too seriously. Others among us do not find time to see the beauty of the holiday season.  As my kids have grown, I found myself failing to see the magic and falling into the latter camp. That changed last...

Happy Halloween From All Of Us At Dayton DUI

Happy Halloween from all of us at Dayton DUI “I think if human beings had genuine courage, they'd wear their costumes every day of the year, not just on Halloween. Wouldn't life be more interesting that way? And now that I think about it, why the heck don't they? Who made the rule that everybody has to dress like sheep 364 days of the year? Think of all the people you'd meet if they were in costume every day. People would be so much easier to talk to - like talking to dogs. ” ― Douglas Coupland, The Gum Thief Beware of the...

I Oppose OVI Checkpoints – Text “DaytonDUI” To 313131

Why do I oppose OVI checkpoints? I oppose OVI checkpoints because they are wrong! When I was a kid growing up in the Miami Valley, we believed that what separated us from the evil Soviet Union was our freedom.  It was a Cold-War trope that in America you need not fear officers of the state stopping you for no reason to ask for your papers. Americans travel freely!  It was at the end of the Cold-War that America began its decades long War on Drugs.  The War on Drugs fundamentally changed who we are. We started to fear each other. We no...
