Fatal crashes increase on marijuana holiday

Tennessee drivers concerned about traffic safety and marijuana usage may have reason to worry. The American Medical Association's periodical JAMA Internal Medicine recently detailed an epidemiological study that shows a spike in traffic fatalities on April 20, the unofficial holiday upon which marijuana activists promote its usage.

2 facing charges after authorities seize MDMA

Tennessee man accused of trafficking large amounts of cocaine

A Drug Enforcement Administration investigation has resulted in indictments against 12 people. Agents allege that they were part of an organization bringing cocaine into Tennessee, and they have identified a man from Memphis as the possible ringleader.

Shoplifting in Tennessee can cause serious issues for you

With the rise of self checkout systems, more and more people feel tempted to shoplift. After all, with no one there to ring you up, it's easy to imagine getting away with ringing an item up incorrectly or even just not paying for something in your basket or cart.

Being at or over the legal limit of .08 percent can lead to mandatory jail time as well as costly fines and the suspension of a driver's license. A new federally funded study is arguing for a lowered drunk driving threshold in order to improve roadway safety and cut down on fatal crashes.
