Over the weekend of September 21-22, the sea.hear.now Festival welcomed more than 35,000 people to Asbury Park. From sea to Shore, Asbury Park rocked and resonated with music from dozens of bands headlined by the B52s, the Dropkick Murphys, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts and the Dave Matthews Band. Lots of live music, but also a surf contest, art demonstrations, food and drink. 

The sea.hear.now Festival was the place to eat, drink, rock out and be merry – say goodbye to summer and hello to fall.

When You Need a Criminal Defense Attorney For Belmar and Lake Como

Summertime, and the living is frenzied. Belmar is jumping, and spirits in Lake Como are high. Maybe a little too high, and that can lead to municipal or superior court, and that can lead to a need for representation – to keep the summer fun flowing.

During the summer, Belmar and Lake Como are two places along the Jersey Shore where many citizens get away from the hot inland turf and get loose near the sunny surf. Some people eat, drink and get a little too merry, and the local police are kept busy with arrests for underage drinking, fake identification, ordinance violations, simple and aggravated assault, criminal trespass, outstanding warrants and interference with business.

New Jersey’s New and Lenient Expungement Laws Help You Clear Your Record

If you are worried that your criminal record is holding you back in applying for schools, applying for jobs, applying for the military – you could be right. Your past is messing with your future. What can you do in the present to fix that?

MEDICAL = YES, WITH RESTRICTIONS.

RECREATIONAL = NOW, NO! BUT COMING SOON IN 2018, MAYBE.

Marijuana advocates in Vancouver, Canada send a message resonating all the way to New Jersey.

Recreational marijuana is not (yet) legal in New Jersey. And offenders who possess or distribute marijuana are dealt with harshly. But that could all change when New Jersey undergoes a regime change from the Christie Dynasty to whatever is coming next.

It is important to know the differences and the laws, because the difference could lead to arrest and conviction for possession or distribution of marijuana – which could lead to years to decades of prison time, harsh fines and a permanent criminal record.

And if you’re in the slammer when the rules (possibly) change a couple of months from now, you’ll miss out on all the legal fun.
