When you think about drug crimes, you probably think of drug rings pulling illegal drugs into the streets from foreign countries. You might imagine hardened gangsters or people with troubled pasts. What you may not have thought about is the number of normal people who sometimes get caught up in drug trafficking allegations.

Spring break in Wisconsin is a welcomed season by many in-state and transfer college students alike. Final exams are complete and it's time to relax and enjoy a little rest and relaxation.

Since many of these events include beverages that contain alcohol, it's good to come up with ideas to prevent becoming intoxicated, especially if you plan to get behind the wheel of a car.
