bail bondsThe category of CNS Depressants includes some of the most commonly abused drugs. Alcohol – the most familiar drug of all – is abused by an estimated 40-50 million Americans.

  • Slightly more than half of Americans age 12 or older reported being current drinkers of alcohol in 2014 (52.7% of the population). This translates to an estimated 139 million people.

  • Depressant drugs consistently rank among the most widely used and abused drugs in the U.S. and Canada. Over the past decade, an estimated 60 million prescriptions were processed for minor tranquilizers in U.S. pharmacies. Source: Downers: A New Look at Depressant DrugsDepressants slow down the operation of the central nervous system (i.e., the brain, brain stem and spinal cord).
    • Cause the user to react more slowly.
    • Cause the user to process information more slowly.
    • Relieve anxiety and tension.
    • Induce sedation, drowsiness and sleep.
    • In high enough doses, CNS Depressants will produce general anesthesia, i.e. depress the brain’s ability to sense pain, and in very high doses, they can induce coma and death.

DUI-defenseAnother reason to make Charles M. Rowland II, DaytonDUI, you first choice for DUI/OVI defense is that Ohio does not allow expungements in drunk driving cases.  If you make a mistake when you are a young person, the stigma of a DUI conviction will follow you for the rest of your life. In 2014, Ohio decided to expand the ability of Ohioans to apply for an expungement and get a fresh start. It was decided that DUI offenders did not deserve a break under the new law.

The current expungement law makes choosing the right DUI attorney of paramount importance.

Do Not Give Your Dog Beer!

No matter how much you think your best friend may want to share a beer with you, it is not a good idea. Dogs have a much smaller liver and are incapable of processing alcohol. If the amount of alcohol overwhelms their liver it could be fatal. Having too much alcohol will cause a dog’s central nervous system to slow down their breathing and heart rate and can lead to a coma and death. Too much alcohol can make a dog’s blood to acidic which could lead to cardiac arrest. Disturbed kidney function, dehydration and low blood sugar could also cause your drunk dog massive problems. It is also a bad combination because by the time you notice impaired actions it may be too late. When you combine a dog’s diminished capacity to process alcohol with their smaller size, you have a recipe for disaster if your pet drinks a beer. If you see signs of impairment get your dog to a vet as soon as possible.
