California DUI Laws

This was our third show, actually recorded the second night we started this whole podcast. We decided to do a show on California DUI Laws. We originally wanted something we could record and reference later on to track Michelle’s progress through her recovery.

Once their sources dry up, they need to feed that addiction, which is where the lower cost heroin comes into play. This is a HUGE problem in America today and it becomes worse as pain management is handled by doctors through prescription medication rather than alternatives. Many stars such as Seymour Hoffman are a victim of opiate abuse as well, resulting in death. Let’s not forget the amount of heroin being smuggled in through the border states of California/Texas sourcing through Mexico. Continue To Full Article
