The pursued strategy will help both companies to shape the future of the retail market.

Dealing with Probation Violations
July 26, 2018
When a person is convicted of a crime a common outcome is they are put on probation. Probation is a period of time in which a person is under court supervision. The person will have many requirements such as educational classes, community service, and drug testing. Probation is the alternative to jail.
When a person fails to complete probation requirements, the judge will haul them back into court. The stakes are high in these situations. The person could face jail or prison time for a probation violation. This article provides some guidance for dealing with probation and probation violations.
When You Are First Put on Probation
I always tell people to try and complete as many probation requirements as soon as they are put on probation. Don’t procrastinate. If the judge orders you to do forty hours of community service, try to knock out the hours as soon as possible.
People are busy, with work, family, and other commitments. Waiting until...
Marijuana Law Updates from ArborYpsi Law
July 21, 2018

Michigan voters will go to the polls in next November to decide if marijuana use and possession will be legal for recreational use. About ten years ago, medical marijuana was decided by a vote of 63% of the voters, an overwhelming majority, so pro-marijuana advocates are hopeful for the passage of recreational marijuana.
The new law would allow possession in public of up to 2.5 ounces, and up 10 ounces at home. No marijuana use would be allowed in public. Individual communities get to make the call on whether dispensaries can operate in their township or city.
Driving After Smoking
Currently, it is against the law to drive with any amount of active THC in your system. This holds even if you are not affected by the marijuana. For medical marijuana...
