Penalties for possessing heroin with the intent to distribute

There are certain drugs in Philadelphia that can be very beneficial for those who take them. Most of the time, these drugs are prescribed by doctors to treat medical conditions. However, many others use drugs without valid prescriptions. It may be to self-medicate or simply a curiosity that turned into an addiction. There's no dispute that, for whatever reason, some of these individuals may turn to the streets for other drugs, a system which law enforcement has been cracking down on for decades. As a result, many Pennsylvania residents end up being accused of dealing drugs.

Driving is something many people do every day in Philadelphia. Motor vehicles make life convenient and allow people to get to work, run errands, see friends and family, and go to social gatherings. However, when people do not drive safely, their modes of transportation can turn into dangerous weapons. This why there are laws against doing things that distract drivers, such as drinking and driving.

How many juveniles are in placement as a punishment?

Both adults and juveniles can be subjected to penalties if they are convicted of a crime. However, there are some differences on how adult cases are handled in comparison to juvenile matters. The goal of the juvenile law system is to rehabilitate young individuals so that they do not make the same decisions as an adult. So, juvenile punishments are based on that goal and are made accordingly.

Can people restore gun rights after losing them in Philadelphia?

The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution protects one's right to own firearms. While gun possession is a protected right, there are still many laws restricting their ownership and use. There are laws on where a person can possess them, and permits are required in certain situations. People in Philadelphia can also lose their right to possess a firearm altogether. If a person has committed certain crimes, then he or she may not be allowed to possess a gun again and if they do, they could be charged with an additional crime.
