New DUI legal limit proposed for Oregon by federal government

Often people have an idea of how much they are able to drink while still being alright to drive. However, that might be about to change. Recently, the federal government has recommended that all states, including Oregon, lower their legal limits for driving drunk. Under the current law, a person cannot be charged with a DUI unless that person's blood alcohol content level is a .08 percent or higher.

Oregon couple's drug case involves state and federal courts

Both the state and federal governments have criminal courts. Each court handles different types of crimes and has rules and procedures that need to be followed. Drug charges typically are prosecuted in Oregon courts as a state crime. Drug offenses have a wide range of punishments depending on the specific charges, the amount of drugs the person is accused of having or dealing, the person's criminal record and the type of drug involved. However, some drug charges can be prosecuted in federal court. These charges are typically more severe and have heavier consequences.
