Considering a legal battle regarding mesothelioma and asbestos exposure can be a scary prospect. However, with the right mesothelioma legal professionals, the process can flow much smoother and most often with better results; including mesothelioma settlements. There are number of questions that many people may have regarding mesothelioma settlements. Below are just a few of the concerns we have heard in recent years.
Are mesothelioma settlements typically subject to income tax fees and requirements?
Generally speaking, settlement money earned from a personal injury is not taxable by most states. This same principle applies to a mesothelioma settlement. However, taxes are charged to the representing Attorney who earns profits from a mesothelioma settlements contingency fee. If mesothelioma settlement monies are invested, then taxes will be applied to interest earned from this personal injury.
What options exist for individuals with limited income, when seeking a mesothelioma settlement?
Quite often, attorneys will offer a special contract for legal services. This contract provides all the necessary legal guidance and representation, with no upfront costs. When a mesothelioma settlement is achieved, the attorney will take a portion of the payoff as their contingency fee. If a mesothelioma settlement is not possible, the contract releases a client from all financial responsibility. With this type of contract, a client has virtually no risk in attempting to obtain a fair and deserved mesothelioma settlement.
How does the Statute of Limitations affect a potential settlement?
In all personal injury cases, each state permits a certain amount of time to pass before the ability to bring a lawsuit expires. This time period varies depending on the state, but in many cases it runs around two years. With an illness thats characteristic evolution involves several years, or even decades, of dormancy, like mesothelioma; there are some difficulties in meeting the typical Statutes of Limitations throughout the United States. For fairness, most states have adopted the Discovery Rule, which enables individuals to bring suit within a specified time period after diagnosis from any latent illness, like mesothelioma. The Discovery Rule is just another way the legal system has responded to right many of the negligent wrongdoings of companies and organizations; ensuring justice and protection for any individuals seeking their rightful, mesothelioma settlement even decades after asbestos exposure.
How soon should an attorney be contacted after diagnosis?
For the best mesothelioma settlement possible, it is highly recommend that an attorney be contacted soon after a diagnosis is received. This ensures that the individual receiving legal assistance is in sound mind and body for initial testimony and official depositions regarding their experience with asbestos contamination.
Policymakers in the United States claim that marijuana use is hazardous, often leading to the use of more potent drugs, such as cocaine and heroin. As of 2000, eight states had passed laws allowing seriously ill patients to take marijuana as a prescription pain-control substance. However, people who grow, buy, or use the drug for such purposes can be arrested and prosecuted under federal law.
Marijuana is the product of Cannabis sativa, a hemp plant, and it refers specifically to the plant’s leaves and flowers. Used for centuries as a painkiller, it has become popular as a recreational drug that produces a general feeling of well-being. Marijuana is known by a variety of alternative names—including marihuana, pot, weed, and grass. It is illegal in most countries, although some nations have lowered the penalties for owning or using small amounts of the drug. Movements have formed to legalize marijuana, at least for medical purposes, but critics of such efforts argue that the drug does more harm than good.
Usually dried, crushed, and smoked in pipes or hand-rolled cigarettes, marijuana can also be consumed in food or drink. Users may experience both physical and psychological effects. Physical effects range from red eyes and dry mouth to an increased heart rate and loss of coordination. Some effects—including relief from pain and nausea, increased appetite, and reduced muscle spasms—are considered beneficial for medical conditions such as cancer, AIDS, and multiple sclerosis.
Psychological effects may involve hallucinations, impaired judgment, and mood swings. Some studies have linked marijuana use to short-term memory problems. Although marijuana does not cause physical addiction, users can develop a psychological dependence on the drug.
A treaty called the International Opium Convention of 1925 was the first attempt to control the international trade in marijuana. In the years that followed, many countries passed laws against growing, selling, possessing, or using marijuana. In the United States, the possession and use of marijuana was declared illegal in 1937. Marijuana is currently regulated under the Controlled Substances Act, part of the Comprehensive Drug Abuse and Control Act of 1970. This federal law classifies marijuana as a Schedule I drug, which means that it has no safe medical use and a high potential for abuse. Despite these regulations, marijuana is the most widely used illegal drug in the country. In 2000, about 14 million Americans were current users of illicit, or illegal drugs, and 76 percent of them reported using marijuana, according to the National Household Survey on Drug Abuse.
Some European countries have decriminalized the use of marijuana, regarding the drug as no more harmful than cigarettes and alcohol. Policymakers in the United States, by contrast, claim that marijuana is hazardous, often leading to the use of more potent drugs such as cocaine and heroin. As of 2000, eight states had passed laws allowing seriously ill patients to take marijuana as a prescription pain-control substance. However, people who grow, buy, or use the drug for such purposes can be arrested and prosecuted under federal law. Some argue that permitting marijuana to be used for medical purposes would lead to an increase in recreational use and pressure to legalize the drug.
In some parts of the United States, farmers have lobbied to legalize the growing of hemp, a plant related to marijuana that has industrial uses as a fiber. However, their efforts have been unsuccessful due to the association of hemp with marijuana.

Point of View 1: Marijuana Should Be Legalized Because Its Prohibition Unnecessarily Taxes Law Enforcement
The responsible use of marijuana should be legalized since it is fundamentally no more dangerous than the use of legal drugs such as tobacco and alcohol. Evidence is lacking in regard to both marijuana’s addictive quality and its potential as a gateway drug. Because of investigations, arrests, trials, and incarcerations involving marijuana, law enforcement and judicial resources are unnecessarily burdened. Millions of Americans who smoke marijuana with little negative impact on society at large are threatened by a climate where the penalties for engaging in marijuana use are too severe. The currently illegal marijuana trade promotes crime by contributing to a dangerous black market for unregulated marijuana. A policy that allows for the decriminalization, legalization, and regulation of marijuana use for responsible adults is needed to give Americans freedom of choice in deciding whether to smoke marijuana.
Marijuana use among adults should be allowed in the spirit of the legalization of such drugs as tobacco and alcohol. Prior to the “Marihuana Tax Act” of 1937, people used marijuana without restriction. R. Keith Stroup, executive director of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, argues that the 1937 law was passed in a climate where marijuana was demonized by media and political interests.
The Federal Bureau of Narcotics declared that a marijuana user “becomes a fiend with savage or `cave man’ tendencies. His sex desires are aroused and some of the most horrible crimes result. He hears light and sees sound. To get away from it, he suddenly becomes violent and may kill.” Newspapers also made hyperbolic claims; among them the Journal of Law and Criminology reported on the habit of marijuana use, alleging that “[i]f continued, the inevitable result is insanity, which those familiar with it describe as absolutely incurable, and, without exception ending in death.” Throughout the remainder of the century, further legislation resulted in harsh penalties for people possessing, growing, using, or selling marijuana. This legal climate has hampered investigations into the possible benefits of using marijuana to alleviate nausea and suffering caused by certain medical conditions. Although some states have put measures in place that protect citizens from severe consequences for marijuana possession and use, the vast majority recommend jail time or impose stiff fines for convictions.
Law enforcement and judicial resources are disproportionately wasted on crimes involving marijuana. While few argue against arresting irresponsible users of marijuana, many believe that the general effort to restrict its use keeps people from focusing on more severe and violent crimes.
Criminalizing marijuana creates the false impression that it is as dangerous as more addictive drugs of like heroin and cocaine. Making marijuana legal and regulating it would take the criminal element out of its trafficking. Stroup, in testimony before Congress, criticized the disproportionate attention that marijuana offenses receive, stating: “By stubbornly defining all marijuana smoking as criminal, including that which involves adults smoking in the privacy of their home, government is wasting police and prosecutorial resources, clogging courts, filling costly and scarce jail and prison space, and needlessly wrecking the lives and careers of genuinely good citizens.”

Point of View 2: Marijuana Is a Harmful Drug that Should Not Be Legalized
Marijuana is a harmful drug that should not be legalized. Its use is associated with various health risks, impairs judgment, and might serve as a “gateway drug,” leading to the eventual use of more destructive and addictive drugs such as heroin and cocaine. Further, research indicates that marijuana users experience a higher likelihood of problems at work, home, and school than nonusers. Attempts to promote the use of marijuana to alleviate the nausea and suffering of people with certain medical conditions are considered by the opposition to legalization efforts to be politically motivated efforts to undercut the perception of marijuana as harmful. Unlike legal drugs like tobacco and alcohol, marijuana contains an ingredient that produces a euphoria that warrants its continued distinction as an illegal substance. Legalizing marijuana would send a mixed message to teenagers whose parents are able to use the authority of law to support their own opposition to its use.
Studies have shown a number of health risks for marijuana users. As with tobacco, marijuana contains a number of carcinogens (cancer-causing agents), and the act of smoking itself is linked to other non-cancerous respiratory illnesses. Research in animal and human populations also indicates that marijuana use negatively impacts such cognitive functions as concentration, learning, and memory. Rats exposed to delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the active ingredient in marijuana, have shown nerve cell and resultant memory loss in experiments. Additional research on humans shows an impact on learning that might last up to four weeks. Marijuana use impairs judgment in the short-term as evidenced by findings of the Department of Health and Human Services. Their studies indicate that Washington, D.C., emergency rooms deal with more than 2,500 cases a year in which marijuana smoking plays a part, with more than 10 percent of those patients under 18 years of age. Driving under the influence of marijuana also contributes to traffic accidents which regularly result in injuries and death.
THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, has a biological impact that distinguishes it from legal drugs such as tobacco and alcohol. THC releases dopamine, a naturally produced chemical that stimulates a feeling of euphoria; as dopamine supplies are exhausted, people using marijuana show withdrawal symptoms. In 1999, the National Institute on Drug Abuse categorized more than two million people as dependent on marijuana based on such criteria. Such findings contradict those who argue that marijuana is not addictive. Further, its reputed usage as a “gateway drug,” is especially dangerous, as more addictive drugs like cocaine or heroin are considered far more dangerous than marijuana.
Commenting on the high produced by marijuana use, Damon Linker, associate editor of First Things, a publication of the Institute on Religion and Public Life, regards the behavior as contributing to “a pathology of the soul.” He states, “[I]nhaling marijuana smoke, however pleasurable, can only lead to an ersatz satisfactionbecause it involves nothing praiseworthy. Thus it is that, after its effects have worn off, marijuana leaves its users with little more than a feeling of emptiness and a craving for another high.”

Point of View 3: Marijuana Use Should Be Allowed to Alleviate the Nausea and Suffering of People with Certain Medical Conditions
Although marijuana use is regarded as illegal by the federal government, an exception should be made for people whose suffering and nausea can be relieved by its use. Legal alternatives to marijuana with the same active ingredient do not work with all patients. Regardless of the negative impact that marijuana can have on a person’s health, benefits eclipse the hazards for some patients. Further research into the positive effects of medicinal marijuana use has been hampered by the drug’s classification as an illegal substance. Allowing further scientific investigation into the use of medicinal marijuana would help clarify when its use might be most appropriate.
Studies have shown marijuana can benefit people with certain medical conditions and symptoms. Prior to its prohibition in 1937 with the passing of the “Marihuana Tax Act,” some members of the medical community touted marijuana as a drug with the potential to alleviate various adverse health conditions. Regardless of its status as an illegal drug, marijuana has been promoted as a possible treatment when applied under strict supervision; it has been shown to be an effective means of reducing nausea and vomiting experienced by chemotherapy patients. While alternatives such as Marinol, a legal form of the active ingredient in marijuana, exist, some patients do not respond as successfully to its administration. Marijuana has also shown some promise in relieving the pain felt by people who suffer from glaucoma, a debilitating eye condition that can lead to blindness, as well as in suppressing appetite gain and inducing muscle relaxation, conditions associated with a number of illnesses.
Even though marijuana use has some irrefutable negative effects on health, for some people its benefits outweigh its drawbacks. Smoking marijuana has been demonstrated to have a negative impact on the lungs over time, while studies also show a link between marijuana and impaired learning and memory functions. But for some patientsespecially those with terminal conditionsthe alleviation of suffering in the short-term trumps concerns about marijuana’s long-term effects on health.
Since marijuana can relieve the pain and suffering of people with certain medical conditions, further research needs to occur. Unfortunately, say supporters of research, in a climate where marijuana is regarded as illicit by the federal government, researchers might not feel the freedom to investigate its use. In 1997, the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy requested that the Institute of Medicine (IOM), a division of the National Academy of Scientists, provide a report on the benefits and drawbacks of marijuana use. All of the recommendations presented by the IOM called for further research of medicinal marijuana through strictly controlled studies and clinical trials. Gary Newkirk, a clinical professor and medical editor in Seattle, offered a direct challenged to the government: “Marijuana is currently a Schedule 1 drug, considered to be potentially addictive and with no current medical use. Marijuana needs to be reclassified as a Schedule 2 drug, `potentially addictive but with some accepted medical use,’ and studied to the hilt by the same impartial science that has brought this country to the forefront in medicine.”

Kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) is a tropical tree native to the jungles of Southeast Asia. It has been used by people in Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia for centuries mostly to increase endurance for manual labor. Unlike many herbal remedies, the active constituents of Kratom, mitragynine and 7-OH-mitragynine have been identified and characterized. Both compounds are chemically related to yohimbine, but bind to mu, delta and kappa opiate receptors in the body and brain (mu opiate receptors underlie the pleasant and addictive effects of opiates like morphine and heroin).
Previously unknown in the west, it is becoming increasingly popular due to the activities of internet retailers, many of whom advertise it as a “legal high”. While this is true, Kratom has many legitimate uses aside from intoxication and has enormous potential as an alternative medicine for treating some very difficult to manage conditions.
Effects: In low doses, Kratom appears to be stimulant-like, providing extra energy and endurance. It is in higher doses that Kratom’s opiate-like effects become clear and users experience sedation, nausea and euphoria. Due to binding affinities for opiate receptors throughout the body, including the brain, Kratom’s effects are similar to many opiate analgesics including codeine and morphine. It produces states of intoxication that are similar to Opium and can be habit forming, albeit in a less intense way. Side effects of opiates can also be also present including itchiness and constipation.
Doses: The strength of Kratom is highly variable depending on the strain, supplier and time of year. A low dose varies from 2-4 grams and a high dose ranges from 5-10 grams. Doses higher than 10 grams, especially of high grade Kratom invariably cause unpleasant side effects including nausea, vomiting and motor agitation. Overdose and death has not been recorded with Kratom alone though it was detected in the blood of at least at least one polydrug death in Asia involving a whole cocktail of more harmful substances.
Method of consumption: There are various methods of consuming or extracting Kratom which can be acquired in various forms including whole leaf, crushed leaf and as a powder. The powdered form is easiest to deal with and will produce the greatest effect for the least amount of effort.
The simplest method of consuming kratom is to simply swallow the dry powder. This can be done relatively painlessly by pouring a little bit of water in the mouth, tilting one’s head back so that the water covers the throat, dumping in a pre-measured amount of Kratom from a piece of paper folded in half and swallowing. If done right the Kratom eater may not even taste the Kratom.
Eating Kratom dry delays the onset of effects and prolongs their duration. For a more rapid onset, Kratom can be simmered briefly in boiling water and then consumed as a tea. Due to the low solubility of active alkaloids in water, it is recommended that the plant material be consumed with the tea rather than filtered out.
Extracts: Alkaloids in Kratom, including mitragynine and 7-OH-mitragynine cannot readily be dissolved in water but can be extracted with other solvents. However, the effects of Kratom appear to be mediated by a wide range of different alkaloids and it is for this reason that extracts, sometimes labelled 10x, 30X or even 100X are often less potent than unaltered 1X plain leaf although one reported case of a a deadly overdose in Thailand involved Kratom extract in combination with other very strong drugs.
Medicinal Benefits and Heath Effects: Kratom has been used in Thailand traditionally to treat diarrhea and studies in rats have shown it to be as effective as Loperimide (Immodium AD) especially for the treatment of severe diarrhea (Chittrakarn, 2007).
Recently, chronic opiate users have begun to use Kratom for the treatment of opiate withdrawal (Vicknasingam, 2010). In most cases, Kratom can completely replace the opiate of abuse and relieves withdrawal symptoms even in very severe opiate users such as IV heroin addicts. Kratom itself can cause a physical dependance but its withdrawal symptoms are no where near as severe as that of illegal or prescription opiates and many addicts have found it useful to convert their addiction to Kratom first before quitting completely.
Because of its biological similarity to opiate analgesics, Kratom can successfully be used as an alternative for moderate to severe pain. It is less habit-forming than drugs such as oxycodone, morphine or hydrocodone that are traditionally used to treat conditions such as chronic back pain and may be just as effective.
Anecdotal evidence suggests that Kratom may be useful in alleviating symptoms of restles leg syndrome (RLS) although once habituated, withdrawal symptoms may make the condition temporarily worse.
Some of the compounds found in Kratom have been shown to have antioxidant properties and therefore are considered to be of significant health benefit. Additionally, consumption of Kratom can help add fiber to the digestive tract.
Legality: Kratom is completely legal in much of the west, including the United States and Canada. It is illegal to possess or sell in Thailand, Malaysia or Australia but is legal in Indonesia where much of the Kratom in western markets originate. It is not approved for human consumption by the FDA in the U.S. or relevant agencies in Canada and for this reason is not widely marketed at a large scale.
Sources: Kratom can be purchased in large quantities directly from growers but most customers in the United States and Canada prefer to order personal use quantities from reputable Kratom vendors in their own countries. Discretion is advisable when purchasing Kratom due to the large number of unscrupulous online retailers selling sub-par or even fake Kratom that is dangerous to consume.
Most Canadian customers buy from American sites but more Kratom stores from Canada, such as madamkratom.ca, have been appearing and offer lower shipping costs, faster delivery, and competitive prices. Nonetheless, many customers continue to order from American sources due to a lack of information or a perceived better value from U.S. sites.
Conclusion: Far from being just a “legal high” like Salvia, Kratom offers many health benefits for those interested in alternative medicines and may be a major godsend for those battling opiate addiction. While it is still largely unknown in the west, it is slowly becoming more popular and is readily acquired online.

Almost everyone knows how frustrating it is when you buy something new and it does not perform as expected. Since many people depend upon their cars everyday to get them from Point A to Point B, a car that does not work is not only exasperating but inconvenient. If you have a vehicle that isnt performing up to par, you may have a lemon. There is protection for consumers in this case. In the United States, the lemon law for cars covers such a contingency. It is simply a matter of finding out whether you and your vehicle qualify under the legislation.
Finding Information on the Lemon Laws for Cars
When it comes to finding information about the Lemon Laws in America, you can consult several sources. You need, of course, to be aware of the two different types of lemon laws that could be applicable in your case: federal and state. The federal government has its own lemon law. This is the MagnusonMoss Warranty Act. Yet, most individuals tend to rely on the lemon law for cars of their won state. This creates a problem. The laws for each state differ sometimes infinitesimally, but they do have differences.
Take the coverage in terms of how long the car has been in the shop requiring repairs and/or replacement parts. In New Jersey, the lemon law states they will cover a car that has been shop bound for 20 days. In California and Pennsylvania, the minimum period is 30 days. Other characteristics of the act may be more subtle. You can find the lemon law for cars on the internet. Several sites provide the basic information. Check to affirm their credibility. State legislative and vehicle-related sites may contain the specific information you require. They can quote the legislation or provide you with an overview. This may be enough to help you at the beginning.
Talk to a Lemon Law Lawyer
Yet, it is usually not enough to simply look at the lemon law for cars for your state. You need to be able to understand the fine points. This is one reason why you might need to talk to a lawyer. A specialist in this field can help you be aware of the exactly what the law requires and demands of you and your car before it can accept your case under the lemon law. Moreover, a lemon law lawyer is able to sort through the fine print of your warranty, talk to the relevant parties and get to the heart of the matter. He or she is also there to guide you through the process and help you if the manufacturer, through the dealership, decides to put up a fight.
