When involuntary manslaughter tears families apart

According to FindLaw, drunk drivers may be charged with involuntary manslaughter if the crash is fatal. However, this has become such a problem in North Carolina that there is a separate charge for these offenses, known as vehicular manslaughter.

Why are opiates so addictive?

Drug addictions ruin health, destroy families, and cause serious legal repercussions. This is especially true when it comes to opiates, which are highly addictive even after short-term use. Understanding the nature of addiction is crucial, both for family members as well as the person with the drug problem. The Mayo Clinic explains how opiate addiction works and what risk factors are involved. 

Can inconsistent workplace standards contribute to larceny?

According to Chron.com, in order to combat larceny, companies employ zero tolerance policies that forbid workers from taking from the company inventory. Such rules can be effective, but only if they are enforced regularly. Problems may arise if members of high ranking management decide to bend regulations and help themselves to some of the inventory for personal use. This kind of inconsistent application of the rules could cause the very larceny that a North Carolina employer wishes to avoid.
