Police say people who smoke weed have 'green tongues,' though there's no scientific evidence. From USA TODAY: Police say people who smoke weed have 'green tongues,' though there's no scientific evidence Police officers across the USA have used the observation as one of several signs to justify probable cause and make arrests in criminal cases. Police officers across the USA alleged in some DUI cases that people who recently smoked marijuana had green tongues. Law enforcement is told to look for a "possible green coating" in one specialized training program that's taught all over the world. Police point to no scientific studies that show marijuana causes someone's tongue...

Forensic Problems in the Criminal Courts

There is a big difference between civil courts and criminal courts. The obvious fact is one deals with money in large part and the other, the loss of liberty: jail or prison. The rules of evidence that govern both systems are essentially the same. Or so one would think. The reality is that criminal courts have come under large scrutiny for not following the rules of evidence when it comes to bogus science. The National Academy of Science and The National Institute of Justice were both contracted to perform a comprehensive study on...

The New Fake Deferred Adjudication DWI Law

The New Fake Deferred Adjudication DWI Law Warning Don’t be fooled by the new fake DWI deferred adjudication bill. Those who are uninformed may choose to get a fake dismissal not knowing it is fake. The best thing to do is to analyze your DWI case properly and review all options to determine the best course of action. What is it?

The Serious Problems with Texas’ Breath Test Program

In my last trial, Tarrant County Criminal Court no.2, cause no. 1528525, the State's expert readily conceded facts about Texas' breath test program that are unacceptable.   (fig. 1) The Intoxilyzer 9000 1. The breath test program for the entire state of Texas is run by a law enforcement agency, The Texas Department of Public Safety. The Scientific Director for Texas DPS comes up with the regulations and oversees the program.  For scientific integrity, a law enforcement agency should never be in charge of forensic, scientific evidence. There are no checks and balances in this system. Power is very dangerous when it...
