Legislation to establish medical marijuana program in LA, P.2

In our last post we began speaking about a bill currently sitting on Governor Jindal’s desk that would officially establish medical marijuana as a regulated industry here in Louisiana.

Even minor charges like misdemeanors and underage drinking convictions can prevent you from getting the job, home or car that you want. Employers, landlords and lenders all look at criminal records when deciding whether or not to hire, rent to or loan money to you.
