Why is fentanyl so dangerous for the opioid crisis?

You have probably heard by now that America is in an opioid crisis. This crisis refers to the excessive use of prescription and nonprescription opioid drugs like heroin, oxycodone and others.

Domestic violence is a serious crime in Tennessee

Domestic violence is a risk to everyone in a home, whether there are children or adults present. In Tennessee, domestic assault is treated seriously, so if you're accused of a crime, it's vital that you begin to defend yourself as soon as possible. Without a good defense, you could face penalties that you don't deserve.

Kratom is illegal in Tennessee and several other states

Tennessee's laws are hard on drugs for a reason; when they're not, new drugs hit the market and begin to infiltrate the state. One such drug has recently been in the news.

Police: Losing weapons that turn up in later crimes

What should you consider about domestic abuse?

Domestic violence and abuse are horrifying for victims and also a sign that the perpetrator needs assistance. There is no excuse for verbal, physical or other forms of abuse. While there are people who are falsely accused, those who are not falsely accused need to obtain help to help them manage their own emotions. Victims need assistance to get out of the dangerous situation and to get their lives back on track.
