It’s 4/20 – Know THIS if You’re Celebrating Today

It might not be listed on your desk calendar, but for many in America, today is a national holiday. For those unfamiliar: It’s April 20 – 4/20 – which has long been a marijuana enthusiast’s holiday. I’ve read news out of Denver (where pot is legal), and law enforcement officials there are warning what they expect to be tens of thousands of revelers to practice safe pot smoking. What does that mean, exactly? Too many people, officials in Denver said, realize that while high is absolutely a crime – even if having the weed isn’t.

The same holds true for my friends in West Virginia and Pennsylvania (where possession of marijuana for any reason is not legal) who may be planning to celebrate today. Know that if you toke and drive and get pulled over, you could ultimately be charged with a DUI. In fact, in Colorado’s first year of recreational legalization of pot, state authorities arrested 700 cannabis-impaired drivers – which totaled 12 percent of all DUI arrests there. I’ve said it before and I will say it now for those planning to celebrate 4/20 tonight: Ignorance of the law is not an excuse for breaking it.

If you plan to celebrate, just make sure there is a plan in place so you don’t put yourself in a position where you have to smoke and drive. Take it from this criminal defense lawyer: Pick a designated driver if you’re going out afterward, or better yet, just find a comfy couch to crash on. And as always: If you get into a jam, call me. I’m here to help.

Client Reviews
"I had hired Mr Logue a few years ago for my gf at the time for charges she had gotten before i had met her for prostitution. Big mistake to date her and pay for her lawyer as we didn’t work out but Mr Logue far exceeded expectations. He got nearly all charges in 2 separate cases dropped for her. My mistake to hire him for her but her blessing. I know she didn’t thank you enough so allow me to for her. Very highly recommend Mr. Logue.” A.C.
I was arrested on a felony 3 charge looking at at least up to 2 years in prison. County District Attorney didn't want to negotiate. After a lot of hard work, Sean was able to plead the case all the way down to just 90 days jail with a work release. Better deal than I realistically could have hoped for. Sean and his team worked hard for me. They're the best! Anonymous
After the salesmen told me my gun application "wouldn't be a problem," I was charged with an illegal attempt to posses a firearm. Sean Logue has a good relationship with the DA, but still pushed them to have a trial and I was found not guilty of the felony charge. Sean is a tough and smart lawyer who knows his way around the courtrooms. Anonymous
I am happy to be able to share this information with everyone. Mr. Logue gave attention to our problem immediately and resolved the issue for us quickly. He is an attorney who is respected, not just by us but the court system. I am thankful we found him, and would recommend him to anyone needing a great attorney to represent them. Anonymous
Mr Logue was the one I hired after talking to other attorneys about my case. He was the most knowledgeable and explained everything to me about his plan for me moving forward. He was always available to answer my questions and fought hard and got my charge dismissed!! Don't waste your time looking for anyone else to help you. Mr Logue did an amazing job and very professional! Anonymous
