“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...

All I Do Is DUI Defense

"All I do is DUI defense." When I became a Dayton lawyer in 1995, I did all sorts of law. For a while, I practiced complex civil litigation and consumer law. Frequently, I would appear in divorce court in the morning, civil court in the afternoon. Often I would represent all manner of defendants in criminal court. The thing that changed me from a Dayton lawyer to a DUI lawyer was my time as a part-time prosecutor. I was lucky enough to be offered the job as fill-in prosecuting attorney in the Xenia Municipal Court. That experience taught me that one of...

Standardized Field Sobriety Tests: “Your Drunk Tests Are Hard”

Standardized Field Sobriety Tests One of the areas where a DUI attorney's experience is most obvious is in the cross-examination of the arresting officer on the issue of the standardized field sobriety tests.  The National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA) determines which tests, if any, is correlated with impairment by alcohol. Due to extensive testing, NHTSA determined that three tests were specific for alcohol intoxication: the HGN (horizontal gaze nystagmus), the walk & turn test and the one leg stand test. This three-test battery are now referred to as the "standardized field sobriety tests." Why Is This Important? Because the officer is using...

Dayton DUI Lawyer – Alcohol & The Human Body

I am a Dayton DUI lawyer. If you face a drunk driving charge, please give me a call. Alcohol & The Human Body The pharmacodynamic properties of alcohol classify it as a central nervous system depressant. The more you consumed the greater its effects. It impairs both cognition (the process of knowing, thinking, learning and judging) and psychomotor skills (voluntary movement).  If you think of the evolution of the brain, the affects of alcohol are felt by the most recently developed parts of the brain. These parts of the brain are responsible for judgment, inhibition, personality, intellectual and emotional states. If you continue...

Drugged Driving Defense Requires Experience

Drugged Driving - Driving under the influence of drugs is the next generation of OVI enforcement in Ohio. In 2014, 10 million people aged 12 or older reported driving under the influence of illicit drugs in the past year. It's hard to measure how many crashes drugged driving causes. After alcohol, marijuana is the drug most often linked to drugged driving. It has become a priority of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.  Here are some studies suggesting why they are focusing on this issue. According to the 2012 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), an estimated 10.3 million people aged...

Will We Live To See The End of DUI? One of the most frequently asked questions I get is, "Did Uber kill your business?"  Occasionally, someone will ask about the arrival of self-driving cars. Well, the unfortunate truth is that neither self-driving cars or the Uber/Lyft phenomena is a panacea. Self-Driving Cars Self-driving cars have a great potential to stop DUI drivers.  But...

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...
