Proposed Pennsylvania law may prevent heroin-related deaths

Drug overdoses claim the lives of far too many Pennsylvanians. One reason for the uptick in overdoses related to heroin use is the purity of the heroin itself, which can be as high as 80 percent. Also, some data shows that the rise in prescription drug abuse is also contributing to increased heroin use.

Upper Moreland man gets jail sentence for child porn possession

Many people in Pennsylvania and elsewhere fall into the trap of pornography, and it quickly becomes an addiction. For some people, this addiction leads them to seek child pornography. Because it exploits children, people who are caught with child pornography are often prosecuted and punished severely. Often, these people also need help to overcome their addiction.

Slip and fall could result in lawsuit against public agency

It has happened to us all at one point in time; a stumble down an ill-maintained stairway, a trip over an uneven surface, a slip on a wet or icy floor. This seemingly simple occurrence can have a variety of results -- anything ranging from simply feeling embarrassed to an extremely serious injury. These are just a few examples of conditions that can set the stage for a slip and fall in the workplace and beyond.

Man arrested for drunk driving blows 0.00

Delayed car recall linked to 13 car accident fatalities

Car recalls can be the result of a relatively minor part malfunction or of deadly accidents involving defective vehicles. Agencies such as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration are responsible for tracking these patterns as they are reported by car owners. The manufacturers are also responsible for reporting any complaints that they receive from consumers. But a series of reports over the last several years have only recently become the focus of a serious investigation by the NHTSA and General Motors, the manufacturer of the allegedly defective car. Some of the reports involve vehicle accidents, and in one case a Pennsylvania woman was killed. 

Prescription drug take-back boxes now available in some Pennsylvania counties

Drug addictions are often powerful enough to cause serious harm to a person’s career ambitions, personal relationships, and self-worth. When people serve jail sentences for a drug crime, they may be unable to support their families, and after they leave prison, it may be difficult to restart their careers. Fortunately, some officials in Pennsylvania are working to help people overcome their addictions to prescription drugs so that they will be less likely to face drug charges in the future.

Arrest made in pedestrian car accident that killed 2 teenagers

Accidents can occur on the roads at any moment.
