Drug bust leads to police chief's resignation

A common refrain often heard in connection with alleged criminal activity in Cranford is that the accused perpetrator "should have known better." That statement may imply both a strong understanding of the law and also a blatant disrespect for it. However, many criminal cases may not easily fit into such a generality. There may be times when one does not understand how serious his or her actions are viewed (at least not to the point of considering them to be criminal). Then there may also be cases where cravings and perceived needs could cause one to set aside legal standards that he or she might otherwise honor in order to satisfy an addiction. 

Defining terroristic threats

Many in Cranford are likely familiar with the old saying "sticks and stones can break my bones but words will never hurt me." Harassing and threatening language may, however, leave one facing criminal charges due to New Jersey's terroristic threats statute. The issue in arresting and charging one for making threats may come down to a simple question of delivery, which prompts the question of what matters most: the intent of the speaker, or the interpretation of the audience? 

Detailing New Jersey's medical marijuana law

The subject of medical marijuana can solicit everything from jokes about would-be practitioners seeing patients in their basements in Cranford to bona fide discussions about making it more widely available to patients. We here at The Law Offices of Palumbo & Renaud have been asked by clients when it is OK to possess marijuana for medical purposes. This is an excellent question, because as you may have already discovered, using it for solely for its health benefits does not necessarily mean that you are doing it legally.
