Assessment of physician-assisted death by members of the public prosecution in The Netherlands. (1/167)

OBJECTIVES: To identify the factors that influence the assessment of reported cases of physician-assisted death by members of the public prosecution. DESIGN/SETTING: At the beginning of 1996, during verbal interviews, 12 short case-descriptions were presented to a representative group of 47 members of the public prosecution in the Netherlands. RESULTS: Assessment varied considerably between respondents. Some respondents made more "lenient" assessments than others. Characteristics of the respondents, such as function, personal-life philosophy and age, were not related to the assessment. Case characteristics, i.e. the presence of an explicit request, life expectancy and the type of suffering, strongly influenced the assessment. Of these characteristics, the presence or absence of an explicit request was the most important determinant of the decision whether or not to hold an inquest. CONCLUSIONS: Although the presence of an explicit request, life expectancy and the type of suffering each influenced the assessment, each individual assessment was dependent on the assessor. The resulting danger of legal inequality and legal uncertainty, particularly in complicated cases, should be kept to a minimum by the introduction of some form of protocol and consultation in doubtful or boundary cases. The notification procedure already promotes a certain degree of uniformity in the prosecution policy.  (+info)

Ethical-legal problems of DNA databases in criminal investigation. (2/167)

Advances in DNA technology and the discovery of DNA polymorphisms have permitted the creation of DNA databases of individuals for the purpose of criminal investigation. Many ethical and legal problems arise in the preparation of a DNA database, and these problems are especially important when one analyses the legal regulations on the subject. In this paper three main groups of possibilities, three systems, are analysed in relation to databases. The first system is based on a general analysis of the population; the second one is based on the taking of samples for a particular list of crimes, and a third is based only on the specific analysis of each case. The advantages and disadvantages of each system are compared and controversial issues are then examined. We found the second system to be the best choice for Spain and other European countries with a similar tradition when we weighed the rights of an individual against the public's interest in the prosecution of a crime.  (+info)

Continuing professional development: medico-legal aspects of epilepsy. (3/167)

Generally protection against possible litigation and good clinical practice go hand in hand. Situations in which the law has special relevance for people with epilepsy, those who work with them, and their clinicians are reviewed with special reference to the topics of driving, employment, duties of social carers, the clinician's everyday role, the responsibilities of researchers and epilepsy and the criminal law. What constitutes professional negligence is discussed, with special reference to the United Kingdom. Clinicians are advised to think clearly, write clearly, communicate clearly and have a good relationship with their patients.  (+info)

Epilepsy--doctor's dilemma, lawyer's delight? Medico-legal consequences of practising in the field of epilepsy report of an International League Against Epilepsy British Branch meeting--Edinburgh, April 2000. (4/167)

Six cases are described where the medical management of a person's epilepsy was brought under legal scrutiny. Lessons learnt from this educational exercise include improving doctor patient communication, the function of a Coroner's Court, when is misdiagnosis negligent, the vagaries of expert witnesses, should failure to diagnose a tumour be blamed on the physician or the service when facilities are inadequate, is failure to recognise a rare drug interaction, failure to warn against an interaction, or failure to take a proper history, negligent? The conference also examined the legal ramifications of the nurse/doctor relationship in epilepsy care, the place of epilepsy guidelines and, due to its interactive nature, reflected on the audience's epilepsy knowledge, which, in places seemed significantly deficient. It was a gripping educational exercise.  (+info)

Neonatal euthanasia: moral considerations and criminal liability. (5/167)

Despite tremendous advances in medical care for critically ill newborn infants, caregivers in neonatal intensive care units still struggle with how to approach those patients whose prognoses appear to be the most grim, and whose treatments appear to be the most futile. Although the practice of passive neonatal euthanasia, from a moral perspective, has been widely (albeit quietly) condoned, those clinicians and families involved in such cases may still be found legally guilty of child abuse or even manslaughter. Passive neonatal euthanasia remains both a moral dilemma and a legal ambiguity. Even the definition of passive euthanasia remains unclear. This manuscript reviews the basic moral and legal considerations raised by the current practice of neonatal euthanasia, and examines the formal position statements of the American Medical Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics. The paper concludes by emphasising the need, at least in the United States, to clarify the legal status of this relatively common medical practice.  (+info)

Uneasy promises: sexuality, health, and human rights. (6/167)

Although attention to the links between health and human rights is growing globally, the full potential of a progressive human rights approach to health has not yet been explored, and it is even more faintly understood in the United States than in the rest of the world. At the same time, global claims for sexual rights, particularly for those identifying as gay, lesbian, transsexual, or bisexual, are increasingly being made as human rights claims. All of these approaches to rights advocacy risk limiting their own transformative impact unless advocates critique their own strategies. Paradoxically, using health as a way to bring attention to nonheteronormative sexualities can be both helpful and potentially dangerous, especially when coupled with human rights. Recognizing sexuality as a critical element of humanity, and establishing a fundamental human right to health, can play a role in broader social justice claims, but the tendency of both public health and human rights advocacy to "normalize" and regulate must be scrutinized and challenged.  (+info)

Jails, prisons, and the health of urban populations: a review of the impact of the correctional system on community health. (7/167)

This review examined the interactions between the correctional system and the health of urban populations. Cities have more poor people, more people of color, and higher crime rates than suburban and rural areas; thus, urban populations are overrepresented in the nation's jails and prisons. As a result, US incarceration policies and programs have a disproportionate impact on urban communities, especially black and Latino ones. Health conditions that are overrepresented in incarcerated populations include substance abuse, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and other infectious diseases, perpetration and victimization by violence, mental illness, chronic disease, and reproductive health problems. Correctional systems have direct and indirect effects on health. Indirectly, they influence family structure, economic opportunities, political participation, and normative community values on sex, drugs, and violence. Current correctional policies also divert resources from other social needs. Correctional systems can have a direct effect on the health of urban populations by offering health care and health promotion in jails and prisons, by linking inmates to community services after release, and by assisting in the process of community reintegration. Specific recommendations for action and research to reduce the adverse health and social consequences of current incarceration policies are offered.  (+info)

A capture-recapture study of the prevalence and implications of opiate use in Dublin. (8/167)

BACKGROUND: To date there have been no studies estimating the hidden prevalence of opiate use in Dublin. METHODS: A multisource enumeration followed by the application of the capture-recapture method with log-linear modelling including age and gender stratification to remove heterogeneity was implemented to provide an estimate of the unknown size of the opiate-using population. Two medical and one legal data sources were used. RESULTS: It was found that the ratio of known to unknown opiate users was 1:1.15 with a total of 13,460 (95% CI: 12,037-15,306) users estimated in Dublin in 1996. CONCLUSION: The findings of this study have important ramifications for service delivery.  (+info)

Scots criminal law governs the rules of criminal law in Scotland. Scottish criminal law relies far more heavily on common law than in England and Wales. Scottish criminal law includes offences against the person of murder, culpable homicide, rape and assault, offences against property such as theft and malicious mischief, and public order offences including mobbing and breach of the peace. Scottish criminal law can also be found in the statute books of the UK Parliament with some areas of criminal law, such as misuse of drugs and traffic offences appearing identical on both sides of the Border. Scottish criminal law can also be found in the statute books of the Scottish Parliament such as the Sexual Offences (Scotland) Act 2009 asp 9 and Prostitution (Public Places) (Scotland) Act 2007 asp 11 which only apply to Scotland. In fact, the Scots requirement of corroboration in criminal matters changes the practical prosecution of crimes derived from the same enactment. Corroboration is not required ...
This chapter analyzes the consequences of the same body of law being utilized by different entities for different purposes. It specifically compares the use of international criminal law by international criminal courts and by human rights commissions of inquiry. The chapter first situates modern human rights commissions of inquiry within the broader institutional fact-finding framework of the UN and examines how these make use of international criminal law. The approaches of various commissions are then compared and contrasted with judicial approaches, especially in terms of their interpretation and application of international criminal law. The slightly divergent approaches of commissions of inquiry are justified through the idea of
CRIMINAL LAW. By criminal, or penal, law is now understood the law as to the definition, trial and punishment of crimes, i.e. of acts or omissions forbidden by law which affect injuriously public rights, or constitute a breach of duties due to the whole community. The sovereign is taken to be the person injured by the crime, as he represents the whole community, and prosecutions are in his name. Criminal law includes the rules as to the prevention, the investigation, prosecution and punishment of crime. It lays down what constitutes a criminal offence, what proof is necessary to establish the fact of a criminal offence and the culpability of the offender, what excuse or justification for the act or omission can be legally admitted, what procedure should be followed in a criminal court, what degrees and kinds of punishment should be imposed for the various offences which come up for trial. Finally, it regulates the constitution of the tribunals established for the trial of offences according to ...

The structure of part of a DNA double helixA stunning report was issued by the Department of Justice in 1996, reporting on 28 cases of men whod been convicted of violent sex crimes, including murder, and were then freed from prison based on DNA tests.by J.J. Maloney These 28 cases could be the tip of an iceberg -- since the report points out there are still states that do not accept DNA evidence. Additionally, many convicted men cannot find an attorney to go to bat for them, or the resources to pay for testing. There also is no codified method for routine DNA testing for cases that have been long resolved. Finally, many jurisdictions routinely destroy all evidence after appeals have been exhausted. The importance of this report, however, is that it challenges societys underlying assumptions about criminal law. The first, and most important, assumption to be challenged is the credibility of eye-witness testimony. In case after case, the rape victim made a firm identification of the assailant -- the

Objectives: This study compared recidivism outcomes among criminal offenders with mental illness who were assigned to a mental health court (MHC) or a traditional criminal court. It also explored potential differences in outcomes between subgroups of offenders, including felony and misdemeanor offenders and violent and nonviolent offenders. Methods: Data were obtained from court databases. Offenders in the MHC (N=198) and the traditional criminal court (N=198) were matched by propensity scores and followed for 12 months after the index offense. Data for the 12 months preceding the index offense were obtained for MHC participants. Intent-to-treat analyses were conducted, using both between-group and within-subjects designs. Results: After control for covariates, logistic and Cox regressions indicated that MHC assignment predicted a lower overall rate of recidivism and longer time to rearrest for a new charge compared with assignment to traditional court. The groups did not significantly differ on the
State District Judge Jan Krockers voice cracked as she talked Tuesday about a Hispanic teenager in jail persuading a grizzled and tattooed former white supremacist to get mental health help earlier this year. Somewhere in the jail, their paths crossed, Krocker told a courtroom packed with mental health professionals and members of the criminal justice community. Krocker and others celebrated the official opening of Harris Countys felony mental health court, which started putting mentally ill defendants on probation instead of sending them to jail in May. Krocker has been working to get a special court to oversee felony cases of defendants diagnosed with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and severe depression since 2009. Defendants with pending criminal cases who agree to the probation meet with Krocker and mental health professionals in the courtroom, weekly at first, to coordinate social services and show they are medicated.

The papers focusing on crime, criminals, and victims discuss 10 premises about juvenile delinquency, the availability of firearms and the illicit sale of narcotics, the homosexual as a crime victim, victim compensation, and sex offenses and sex offenders. The sexual provisions of American penal codes are extremely puritanical in attempting to repress with overly severe penalties both normal sex relations not theologically sanctioned; consenting homosexual acts committed in private between adults; and in some jurisdictions, the possession of pornographic materials. Thus, the criminal law does not distinguish between those acts which must be prohibited to protect society and those acts, sexual or otherwise, which are matters of private moral choice. The philosophy of the Warren Court, false convictions, the problem of entrapment, discipline in American policing, legal reactions and reforms, and the vision of police professionalism held by August Vollmer are discussed.

In the United States, a federal crime or federal offense is an act that is made illegal by U.S. federal legislation. Prosecution happens at both the federal and the state levels (based on the Dual sovereignty doctrine) and so a "federal crime" is one that is prosecuted under federal criminal law and not under state criminal law under which most of the crimes committed in the United States are prosecuted. That includes many acts for which, if they did not occur on U.S. federal property or on Indian reservations or were not specifically penalized, would either not be crimes or fall under state or local law. Some crimes are listed in Title 18 of the United States Code (the federal criminal and penal code), but others fall under other titles. For instance, tax evasion and possession of weapons banned by the National Firearms Act are criminalized in Title 26 of the United States Code. Numerous federal agencies have been granted powers to investigate federal offenses, including the Bureau of Alcohol, ...
Bodily harm is defined in section 2 of the Criminal Code as "any hurt or injury to a person that interferes with the health or comfort of the person and that is more than merely transient or trifling in nature".. Bodily harm could include psychological injury to the victim.[1]. Once bodily harm was found, the wording of s. 2 only requires interference of "health" or comfort of the person.[2]. This definition is similar (if it is not word for word) to the English common law definition of actual bodily harm stated.[3]. "Transient" has been interpreted as "Passing by or away with time; not durable or permanent; temporary, transitory"[4]. "Trifling" has been interpreted as "Of little moment or value; trumpery; insignificant, petty"[5]. It is wrong to conclude that merely because the injury heals in less than a week would not be bodily harm as serious life-threatening injuries can be of short duration.[6]. The court should look at the overall effect of the injuries, rather than the individuals ...
Despite Justice Kennedys implicit approval of life-without-parole sentences for crimes committed before the age of 18 ("JLWOP") in Roper v. Simmons, the issue of JLWOP has since generated a wave of attention and advocacy from scholars, bloggers, and journalists, human rights organizations, state legislatures, and international bodies, victims and childrens rights groups, and federal and state courts. Symbolic of, and perhaps in reaction to, the increased momentum of the JLWOP debate post-Roper, the Supreme Court granted review of the constitutionally of JLWOP for non-homicides in Sullivan v. Florida and Graham v. Floridawith the court ultimately barring JLWOP for non-homicide crimes in Graham. However, nearly 93% (over 2300) of the JWLOPers are incarcerated for homicide and their sentences remain unaffected. In the post GrahamJLWOP legal landscape, the critical question now is: what next? This article will seek to provide an answer. Given Congresss virtually non-existent history of "leniency ...
The Search. An officer was in a high crime area and saw 5 people standing in the middle of an intersection. He turned on his blue lights and all five people disbursed in different directions. He "asked" them to come back and all did but the defendant. He kept calling and, when the defendant turned around to come back, he saw the defendant throw a bag of drugs on the ground. Defendant was then arrested. There was no seizure here, so the it doesnt matter whether the stop was legal or not. A seizure doesnt occur until the defendant complies with a show of force. Here, he walked away and threw the drugs. This means no stop and abandonment of the drugs, which the police were free to collect (similar to USSC California v. Hodari D (1991 ...

For the past three decades, legislative approaches to prevent HIV transmission have been used at the national, state, and local levels. One punitive legislative approach has been enactment of laws that criminalize behaviors associated with HIV exposure (HIV-specific criminal laws). In the USA, HIV-specific criminal laws have largely been shaped by state laws. These laws impose criminal penalties on persons who know they have HIV and subsequently engage in certain behaviors, most commonly sexual activity without prior disclosure of HIV-positive serostatus. These laws have been subject to intense public debate. Using public health law research methods, data from the legal database WestlawNext© were analyzed to describe the prevalence and characteristics of laws that criminalize potential HIV exposure in the 50 states (plus the District of Columbia) and to examine the implications of these laws for public health practice. The first state laws were enacted in 1986; as of 2011 a total of 67 laws had ...
Description: Crime is ordinarily proscribed, tried and punished according to the laws on the place where it occurs. American criminal law applies beyond the geographical confines of the United States, however, under some limited circumstances. The federal exceptions to the general rule usually involve crimes like drug trafficking, terrorism, or crimes committed aboard a ship or airplane. State prosecution for overseas misconduct is limited almost exclusively to multijurisdictional crimes, i.e., crimes where some elements of the offense are committed within the state and others are committed abroad. The Constitution, Congress, and state law define the circumstances under which American criminal law may be used against crimes occurring, in whole or in part, outside the United States ...

Although the law does not deal with the issue of domestic violence per se, the criminal laws of the country as set out in the Penal Code contains provisions which would or could address the situation. However, in spite of the laws which can be invoked to handle this problem, the police do not appear to be perceiving domestic violence in the same light as violence committed in a non-domestic context and are downplaying its significance and gravity. Further, unlike other acts of violence which are a public issue, the police view domestic violence as an essentially private matter in which they should not interfere. They do not seem to recognise that violence in any context is a breach of the criminal laws of the country and must be dealt with in the same way. This explains their tendency to make station settlement and to mediate between parties and persuade them to make up their quarrels. They fail to understand the dangers, both physical and psychological, which are a reality in the lives of ...

11/17/2010. Meghan King. This term, the Supreme Court will hear arguments on DePierre v. United States, a case determining whether the phrase "cocaine base" is limited to "crack" cocaine, or whether the phrase encompasses every form of cocaine that is classified chemically as a base. Mr. DePierre was convicted of distributing more than 50 grams of cocaine base under 21 U.S.C. § 841(a)(1) (2006) which created the sentencing minimums for punishing drug-related offenses. The statute provides a mandatory minimum 10-year sentence for offenses involving "50 grams or more of a mixture or substance…that contains cocaine base." The meaning of the phrase "cocaine base" has created a deep division between the circuit courts with four courts of appeals holding the phrase is limited to crack cocaine, while six courts of appeals have interpreted the phrase to mean all chemically basic forms of cocaine. If cocaine base is read to include any chemically basic forms of cocaine, those individuals who are ...

3 credits. Former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Robert Jackson once noted, "The prosecutor has more control over life, liberty, and reputation than any other person in America." This seminar examines the unique role and power of prosecutors in the United States and their responsibility to ensure "that guilt shall not escape or innocence suffer." We will study the ways in which a prosecutor exercises discretion -- in deciding what charges to bring (or whether to bring them at all), in conducting trials, in recommending punishment -- and the ethical and practical considerations that affect those determinations. What duty does the prosecutor owe to the victim? To the police? To the public at large? How might their interests conflict with prosecutors objectives and impact their decisions? A major focus of this course will be the prosecutors obligations to the accused and the various ways in which they are breached. We will examine the potential consequences of prosecutorial misconduct, the instances ...

18] The function of the civil law of tort is different. Its main function is to identify and protect the rights that every person is entitled to assert against, and require to be respected by, others. The rights of one person, however, often run counter to the rights of others and the civil law, in particular the law of tort, must then strike a balance between the conflicting rights. Thus, for instance, the right of freedom of expression may conflict with the right of others not to be defamed. The rules and principles of the tort of defamation must strike the balance. The right not to be physically harmed by the actions of another may conflict with the rights of other people to engage in activities involving the possibility of accidentally causing harm. The balance between these conflicting rights must be struck by the rules and principles of the tort of negligence. As to assault and battery and self-defence, every person has the right in principle not to be subjected to physical harm by the ...

Three can keep a secret if two of them are dead." Benjamin Franklins famous idiom, in essence, alludes to the fact that our most intimate secrets may never be safe in the hands of another. In the age of the "Digital Revolution," however, is our intimate information really safe in our own hands? 91% of adult Americans own cell phones today, and as the technology becomes more sophisticated, so does our use of it. Thumbing through our phones is no longer about a list of names and numbers, it has evolved into much more sensitive information. Our phones have become an extension of ourselves and contain information including emails, photos, and GPS data. Consequently, modern technology has courts struggling to apply a search-incident-to-arrest jurisprudence that was developed before the dawn of the digital era to the question of whether the Fourth Amendment permits warrantless searches of data on a cell phone seized from an individual.[1] Accordingly, the Supreme Court has granted certiorari in a ...

State ex rel. Cecil Clayton v. Griffith (MLW No. 67552/Case No. SC94841 - 47 pages) (Supreme Court of Missouri, Wilson, J.; Russell, C.J., Breckenridge and
In opening statements, prosecutors said that Dr. Murray was an incompetent physician who improperly used a dangerous anesthetic called propofol to help Jackson sleep and that this misuse ultimately caused Jacksons death.. The defense countered by arguing that Jackson took several pills of the sedative lorazepam on the morning of his death which would be enough to put six people to sleep. They further argued that Jackson then took a self-administered dose of propofol. This final dose, the defense explained, killed Jackson instantly. The defense argued that Jackson accidently killed himself after Doctor Murray refused to administer any more propofol to Jackson for his sleep disorders. They explained that Murray had been attempting to wean Jackson off of propofol by administering other sleep aids (benzodiazepines) to him. Jackson did not want to change the drugs he was taking and therefore began administering the drugs to himself which caused his death.. The defense said, "What we will hear is ...

Former senior Watergate counsel Samuel Dash (see March 25, 1973) writes that if Bush administration officials leaked the identity of covert CIA officer Valerie Plame Wilson to the press (see June 23, 2003, July 7, 2003, 8:30 a.m. July 8, 2003, July 8, 2003, 11:00 a.m. July 11, 2003, Late Afternoon, July 12, 2003, and Before July 14, 2003), "they may have committed an act of domestic terrorism as defined by the dragnet language of the Patriot Act their boss wanted so much to help him catch terrorists." Dash notes that the Patriot Act defines domestic terrorism as "acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any state" that "appear to be intended to intimidate or coerce a civilian population." In Dashs estimation, the Plame Wilson leak meets this criteria. It put Plame Wilsons life at risk along with "her contacts abroad whom terrorists groups can now trace." It is a clear violation of US criminal law. And its intent was to "intimidate or ...

For many things that people may think are wrong, or should be eliminated or prevented, the first (or often main) tactic for dealing with them is criminalization. This applies to things like sex work, abortion, drugs, immigration, domestic violence (and many more). Criminalization means that you make the said thing illegal, criminalize the behavior and attach penalties to engaging in it, often which can include time in prison.. A few of these issues, in particular sex work and abortion, are often hotly debated in feminist circles. There are people within our movement in various positions on the issue, but Ive realized that often a more important question than our opinion about the actual act is the tactics proposed to deal with it.. The first time this became apparent to me was listening to Andrea Smith speak on a panel I was on at a Reproductive Justice conference in Oklahoma. She made the connection when talking about the anti-abortion movement in the US currently, which she argued is actually ...

The review found that within the existing policy framework of mandated interventions for male perpetrators of domestic violence, there is a lack of political support for a serious effort to reframe treatment for such offenders so that implementing an evidence-based approach is feasible. Although the U.S. Department of Justices National Institute of Justice has funded a number of batterer intervention program evaluations, the findings are prevented from being implemented by jurisdictional restrictions against using evaluation findings and other pertinent data in developing program innovations. Criminal justice agencies formulate and implement policies that regulate what structure, duration, and form of intervention is required as a condition of probation for persons found guilty of domestic assault, thereby determining which form of intervention is deemed acceptable by the courts. Consequently, program funding is only available for those programs that conform to these policies. The current best ...

Joseph E. Jacoby, Advisor In recent decades the number of women under criminal justice supervision has increased considerably. Approximately a quarter of all women under the care or custody of adult criminal justice authorities have been convicted of a drug offense. Additionally, beyond being arrested and convicted for a drug offense, women in prison are more likely than their non-institutionalized counterparts to suffer from a substance abuse disorder. While there is a growing body of research concerning women offenders drug abuse and treatment needs, few studies have examined the substance abuse treatment outcomes of women in the criminal justice system. The purpose of this thesis was to assess the following hypotheses: (1) Women offenders with higher treatment motivation at intake into prison-based treatment will be more likely to participate in substance abuse aftercare following release; (2) Women who receive more community-based aftercare following in-prison substance abuse treatment will ...

Addicted to Courts: How a Growing Dependence on Drug Courts Impacts People and Communities finds that providing people with alternatives like community-based treatment are more cost-effective and provide greater public safety benefits than treatment that comes with the collateral consequences associated with involvement in the criminal justice system. "It is shameful that for many people involvement in the criminal justice system is the only way to access substance abuse treatment in this country," said Nastassia Walsh, author of Addicted to Courts and Research Associate at JPI. "We need to change the way we think about drug use and the drug policies that bring so many people into the justice system." Walsh added, "The dramatic increase in drug courts over the past 20 years may provide talking points for so-called tough-on-crime policymakers; however, there are other, better options that can save money and support people and communities. More effective, community-based programs and services ...

This paper explains the many trends in the public and institutional criminal justice system. These trends, starting from the past, push the research into the present and future with the implementation of continuing trends and perspective ideations to aid in the progress and advancement of criminal procedures. This paper starts with the history of community and commercial criminal justice and attaches the proceedings to the present-day standing. This paper also shows an idealistic and theoretical analogy of how the criminal justice system may look in the future based on current trends. Past Trends Stories mentioning jails are throughout history even back to biblical times, however, America did not have an official penitentiary until 1790 at which time Philadelphia constructed the Walnut Street Jail. It was during this time that the root word of penitentiary took on its new form. Prisoners in early times were sent with the aim of the punishment in the form of penance, thus with any luck resulting ...

The drug and alcohol testing market size, in terms of value, is expected to reach $6.3 billion by 2019 from $4 billion in 2014, at a CAGR of 9.5%. The market is categorized on the basis of products and services, sample types, end users, and regions. End users include workplaces and schools, law enforcement agencies and criminal justice systems, hospitals, pain management centers, drug treatment centers, and drug testing laboratories. The criminal justice and law enforcement segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR in the coming five years. This segments growth will be driven by the rise in roadside accidents due to DUI, government initiatives to curb DUI cases, and government support for the criminal justice system in the form of funding.. The major factors contributing to growth of the global drug and alcohol testing market include growing world population and aging population (that leads to an increase in the use of alcohol and prescription and illicit drugs), funding by U.S. federal ...

Stewart was troubled that "a person can be continuously guilty of this offense, whether or not he has ever used or possessed any narcotics within the State, and whether or not he has been guilty of any antisocial behavior there.". Establishing the criminal status of "narcotics addict" violated the ban on cruel ...
