Lawyers vow to protect and defend their clients the best way they can. They are their clients’ legal representatives and their primary pillar of support in between court hearings. Ideally, lawyers are clients’ legal protectors, ensuring justice will be served.

Criminal defense lawyers, like any other attorneys, also share the same responsibilities. Criminal defense attorneys are legal practitioners who specialize in defending citizens and corporations accused of criminal misconduct. One can either hire their private defense attorney or if the budget’s a little tight and a person is financially struggling, a public legal representative, if the defendant passes all the qualifications needed, will be appointed by the court to help him with the trial.

Below are some criminal cases defense attorneys usually handle.

Domestic Violence

For people accused of cases that include violence such as child abuse, rape, kidnapping, and the likes – a criminal defense attorney is needed for the defendant to be represented in court. While these situations may appear severe and brutal, you can’t dispute that defendants are wrongly charged under certain circumstances. And, if the justice system doesn’t give them the chance to appeal their cases and plead their innocence, jail time will forever ruin many innocent lives, and criminals run free from the abuses they made.

Defense lawyers do their job to prevent this from happening and prevent their clients from getting serious charges such as loss of custody over their child, visitation rights, and even the loss of a job or hard-earned high reputation.

 

Driving under the influence (DUI)

Driving under the influence might not look that serious compared to other misconducts considered criminal cases. Still, scenarios under these circumstances can be pretty heavy just to let the defendant get a fine or get a smaller charge. A standard penalty for a person accused of DUI is losing a license or a year in prison. For cases where another person’s life was at stake or even lost, more severe punishment can be sentenced to the accused.

This is why in DUI cases, having an excellent criminal defense attorney is essential. While drivers are highly encouraged to avoid driving under the influence, defense attorneys will help you get a lesser degree of punishment when they find something that will help mitigate your situation.

 

Drug-Related Crimes

As all people know, drug-related crimes are among the gravest criminal crimes in all countries, with one of the heaviest charges. No punishment under the spectrum of this crime is considered easy and light- from solely being caught for having it as your possession to the most grave, a serious one – selling it. All of these cases have very long years of jail time and may even get someone registered as a drug offender, making it harder for him to process legal documents.

However, there are times when the person is innocent of the crime and was just being framed. It happens most in people trying to work as overseas workers. Without their knowledge and permission, their luggage will be placed with illegal drugs, leading to an arrest for drug trafficking, possession, or manufacturing. Criminal defense attorneys handle cases like this. They will investigate, gather evidence, and prove their client’s innocence to help them get free from the charges.

Defense attorneys are not just legal representatives of the client within the court. They will be the ones guiding the client and helping them with the case in and out of the courtroom. From preparing all the necessary paperwork to meeting with all the possible witnesses that can help with the case, defense attorneys go through it thoroughly to ensure their client’s welfare and advantage.

We all deserve to indulge ourselves every now and then. But the key is making sure you indulge responsibly. Here are 7 ways that can help indulge without guilt!

Buy a treat for someone else

By buying a treat for someone else, you are still allowing yourself to indulge without feeling guilty about it! Plus, giving back can make you feel really good inside. Try baking some cookies or cupcakes and deliver them to your neighbors. You will be surprised how great of an effect this one act can have on other people around you as well.

 

Don’t forget about others when it comes to treating yourselves! There is no need for guilt when buying something nice or going on an amazing vacation because by doing so, our happiness can be given to other people around us which benefits everyone involved even further than expected! It doesn’t take much effort at all but the results speak volumes.

Make a coffee pleasure list

Instead of splurging on coffee in the morning, try making a list of all your favorite ways to indulge. Then save up for it! It is not only good for you but also creates anticipation and excitement that will keep you motivated through every step until the big day when you get to indulge with everything on your list! Plus, this can be really fun once there are several items on your pleasure list ready to indulge upon. Don’t forget about coffee blends when trying something new or indulging in some luxury products because having an idea what kind of things would make us happy before buying brings so much joy into our lives which leads us even further than expected towards happiness overall. 

 

You don’t need fancy at all but instead, you just need a small idea of what would make your day or morning even better.

Spend time with loved ones (or yourself!)

Think about activities you love like painting, singing karaoke, or cooking dinner together. Then indulge in it with someone you love! It doesn’t have to be expensive nor does it have to include anything extravagant because the point is spending time together. With loved ones, there are so many benefits that can come from indulging yourself in their presence whether they are around or not.

 

There’s no need for guilt when planning a day filled with quality activities and experiences because by doing so, our happiness will multiply even further than expected just through sharing memories which could possibly last forever depending on how well we indulge ourselves within them too. Quality over quantity is important here but sometimes, both matter equally as much!

Take on a new challenge in your life

Learn how to code, do yoga, or take up rock climbing! Or indulge in anything that interests you, just do it! Indulging yourself isn’t about buying a fancy new dress or going on an amazing vacation even though these things can be included. It is all about challenging ourselves to try something we always wanted to but never got around to doing.

Download a new app or game to indulge your curiosity

Do your homework and indulge in a new app or game that interests you! It doesn’t have to be costly but it should provide some kind of challenge. Or think about how many times we indulge by exploring an idea, concept, or curiosity all through the help of technology now available for free at our fingertips with so many apps and games available too which can really boost our quality of life as well as keep us entertained wherever we go even if there isn’t anything else around nearby too.

Treat yourself to an experience instead of a purchase

Instead of buying something you want, indulge in an experience like booking a weekend trip to Disneyland or taking cooking classes with friends. The memories and stories created from such experiences will always be worth the cost even if it is not as expensive as what we would normally pay for most items nor does it have to break your bank either.

 

Indulging ourselves doesn’t just mean spending money on luxury products because there are so many other ways which can bring us happiness too once we indulge our curiosity and challenge ourselves by doing new things!

Don’t forget about your health

For example, we can indulge by buying nourishing and delicious healthy foods which will keep us feeling good and satisfied for hours after indulging too! Or indulge through other means like giving ourselves regular massages or taking time off from our busy schedules just to relax every once in a while whether it be alone or with others.

We know it can be hard to indulge in your favorite things without feeling guilty, but we’ve got seven tips that will help you do just that!  The last one is very important because if you’re not taking care of yourself first everything else falls apart really quickly!

Finding the best ballroom dress for your figure can be quite a difficult task. Most women have either an hourglass, pear, or inverted triangle shape. With these simple shapes, women have a few different options. They can choose to go the sexy route and wear a revealing dress with big slits, a plunging neckline, or even lace up the middle to create an hourglass shape.

Or they can choose to go classy and wear a satin ballroom dress with a big ruffled skirt or even lace the whole thing up to create an inverted triangle shape.

The trick with deciding the style is finding a dress that compliments your figure and doesn’t make you look bigger than you are. With a bit of research, the good news is that you will find that most ballroom dresses come in several different body shapes. It’s just a matter of finding the right one.

Most ballroom dresses will run large, so you may want to size down at first

If you are an hourglass shape: Look for a dress with underwire and boning in the bodice. Make sure it’s tight enough to hold in your bust and tummy but not too tight to make you look pregnant. The skirt should flare out at the bottom to create a larger silhouette. Make sure the waist is slightly higher, and the shoulders are slightly lower than your own.

If you are a pear shape: Look for ball gowns with high waists and big ruffled skirts. The length should be below your knees to create a long and lean look.

If you are an inverted triangle shape: Look for dresses with ruffles, lace, and layered skirts at Jeravae.com. Make sure the bodice is fitted but the skirt is full and flowing. The length should hit just below your knees for an elongated look.

Your age and activity level also plays a part in the type of dress that you buy

If you are a teenager or in your early 20’s: You can’t go wrong with a dress with a sweetheart neckline, sleeves, and a form-fitting bodice. If you are dancing in the summer months, try to find one with elegant chiffon fabric. Satin dresses may look great when sitting on the dance floor, but they can get hot when you are on the dance floor all night.

If you are in your 30’s: Choose a dress with sleeves and minimal detail. Satin and silk are also great fabrics for this age group.

If you are in your 40’s or older, choose a sleeveless dress with a large cutout in the waistline. This will help cover over any problem areas that you have in the midsection.

Remember, the dress you choose must be something that you can wear while dancing

It’s imperative to remember that the dress you choose to wear must be something that looks good on you and can be worn while dancing. The dress must be functional as well as fashionable. The last thing you need is a dress that can’t be worn during the dance and winds up taking up space in your closet.

Ballroom dresses that are the wrong size will affect your performance. If the dress is too small, it will make you feel self-conscious while dancing. On the other hand, if you wear a dress that is too tight while dancing, you will find that it chafes your skin and can wind up causing rashes. The last thing you need is to feel uncomfortable during the dance and look like a dowdy old grandmother.

The greatest thing about ballroom dresses is that you can find them in almost every size and color imaginable. With a little bit of research, you will be able to find the perfect dress to compliment your figure and make you look stunning on the dance floor.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is one of the popular treatments to cure many diseases. The therapy involves 100 per cent of the oxygen that heals the wounds. According to medical research, wounds are treated with the help of oxygen. More oxygen content in the body helps the person to fight against diseases. A hyperbaric chamber is of different types; let’s have a look below.

Hard Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers

In clinics & hospitals, hard hyperbaric oxygen chambers are used. These chambers are certified that are approved for certain types of diseases. Generally, the use of these chambers has a positive impact on a patient’s health. Hard-shell chambers are steel enclosed chambers that deliver 100% oxygen with great force. Before installing these chambers in the medical facilities, professional meetings are held that cover the safety & few other aspects.

 

Soft-Sided Hyperbaric Chambers

Mild HBOT is also known as soft-sided chambers. These chambers are portable that cover with a zipper. In the Justin Bieber seasons, Bieber used the mHBOT seal with a zipper which was secured by his wife, Hailey Bieber. Apart from the medical concerns, many mountain climbers use the chambers and carry them while trekking. It’s because as they climb high mountains, the oxygen level decreases.

 

Reasons for Using Chambers

The common reasons for using HBOT chambers are :

 

  • Radiation injuries
  • Infections
  • Crush injuries
  • Burns
  • Certain skin grafts & flaps
  • Diabetes-related wounds

 

Any Side Effects

Hyperbaric chamber side effects are relatively rare; in case it occurs better to consult your doctor:

  • Pressure-related injury to your ears or nose
  • Decompression sickness
  • Collapsed lung
  • Low blood sugar
  • Nearsightedness
  • Seizures

Few people dealing with poor heart health have observed some problems with the functioning of heat after the therapy. However, every health condition is different; it’s always recommended to consult the doctor before using oxygen chambers.

 

What Happens During the Procedure?

In some facilities, there are many chambers and vice versa. You can look for a “Hyperbaric chamber near me” online and look for the facilities that can easily offer you therapy. Let’s learn what happens during a hyperbaric oxygen therapy session:

 

  • Firstly you will be asked to replace your clothes with a medical gown which is pure cotton. Not allowed to take anything else into the chamber.
  • You will lay on a table that takes you into the monoplace chamber. It’s a clear plastic tube that’s approximately 7 to 8 feet long.
  • You will be explained to relax and breathe normally during the procedure. Just think like you’re sleeping on the bed at night.
  • Your therapist will be near you to talk if required or to feel comfortable throughout the process. Moreover, the therapist can see & speak to you at all times.
  • Once the patient is comfortable, the chamber will be sealed & filled with oxygen.
  • Then the pressure will rise to 2.5 times the normal air pressure. In the beginning, you might feel discomfort, but no need to stress up; just be normal. The session will last anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours.
  • Once the therapy is at the closing point, the technician will gradually depressurize the chamber.

 

Finally, After the Procedure

Once the therapy is completed, the patient feels lightheaded or tired. Such symptoms will vanish away after a short period of time. Plus, the number of sessions depends on the patients’ health.

The roof is one of the most important parts of your home. You need to make sure it’s structurally sound, water right and well-insulated. A problem with the roof can lead to numerous problems with the property later on. If you are renovating your home or looking to a buy new property, you might need to take a closer look at the roof. Here are the different types of roofs around and their pros and cons.

 

Gable roofs

The gable roof is also known as a pitched or peaked roof and is one of the most popular models in the UK. Their triangular shape sheds water and snow easily and provides more space in the attic. A gable roof adds a beautiful feature to the outside of your property and gives it an old-fashioned element.

However, gable roofs can be a problem with high winds  – especially if the frames are not properly constructed with supports. High winds can cause materials to peel away and uplifts to form underneath the roof. You can cover gable roofs in pretty much any material, including asphalt composition shingles, metal, clay and concrete tiles. If you’re after a specific look for the exterior of your home, gable roofs provide plenty of flexibility. You can customise them in multiple ways.

 

Hip roof

A hip roof has slopes on all four sides and comes together to form a ridge at the top. Hip roofs are much more stable than gable roofs, and the inward slope provides durability. The hip roof allows snow to slide off with no standing water if you live in a snowy area.

You can pitch the roof to an 18.5-degree angle if you live in an area with high winds. Just bear in mind that hip roofs can be a little more expensive and complex in design. You may have to buy more building materials for the construction process. There are more seams in hip roofs, and therefore, more places for water to leak into the valleys. You can use additional roof membranes to seal these areas and reduce the risk of leaks.

 

Flat roof

The flat roof has a slight pitch to allow water to run off, even though it looks completely flat. They are often used in commercial or industrial buildings – such as on the top of high-rise apartment buildings.

Flat roofs offer additional living space on top of the house –  like a patio or garden. People often store heating and cooling units on flat roofs to keep them out of sight. Flat roofs are not recommended in high rainfall and snowfall areas, as they are more susceptible to leaks.

Consider where you live and the style of your property when choosing a roof.

The latest climate report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change led to the Secretary-General of the UN to call it a code red for humanity. António Guterres said burning fossil fuels, emitting greenhouse gases and cutting down forests is putting billions of people at risk. The animal kingdom is suffering with us, and we need to act now to prevent catastrophic damage to the planet.

As well as changes on a national scale, we all need to do our bit to help the cause by reducing our own carbon emissions. And although getting the loft insulated, switching the TV off at the plug and changing to a more eco-friendly mode of transport might not solve the world’s climate problems, it will help contribute to a more sustainable world.

In 2019, domestic transport produced 27 percent of all the UK’s emissions, and this hasn’t changed much in the past 10 years. It is, therefore, an area where we can all try to reduce our carbon footprint.

 

What are the worst offenders?

As you’d expect, most of the emissions come from road traffic – a whopping 91 percent, to be precise. More than half of these emissions are from cars and taxis, with 18 percent coming from heavy goods vehicles and 17 percent from vans.

The carbon footprint of each transport-type is measured by the number of grams of carbon dioxide equivalents per passenger kilometre. Domestic flights are, as you might presume, the most poisonous to the planet at 255g per passenger per km, but petrol and diesel cars are not far behind at 192g and 171g respectively.

 

What are the alternatives?

Obviously, nothing beats walking and cycling when it comes to minimising your impact on the environment. But in many instances, this just isn’t practical, especially if you’re travelling long distances, you need to get somewhere quickly, or you’re carrying something bulky. In this case, one of your best options is to go by train. This cuts your emissions to just over a fifth that of driving.

Travelling by coach will also lower your emissions significantly, but with trains you also have the benefit of speed (and not getting stuck in traffic!). London is a significant CO2 emitter, so the next time you’re travelling to the capital, consider looking up train times to London instead of driving there. You won’t have to suffer the stress and expense of trying to park either!

You might see the UK as a small player when it comes to solving the climate crisis. And while our overall CO2 emissions are a fraction that of other countries, we’re all obliged to do our bit, and if we lead from the front it increases the chances of others following our carbon neutral footsteps.

Several new housing regulations have recently come into play in the UK. However, even with all the new regulations, the moving house process remains largely the same.

You still might need conveyancing solicitors and self-storage to assist with the move or help from removal companies, like a man and a van service. Here are five of the new housing regulations you need to know about in the UK.

Covid bailiff band to end.

In the coronavirus pandemic, the government introduced an emergency ban on bailiffs. Under the band, bailiffs could not carry out an eviction on anyone living in a property with covid-19 symptoms or someone self-isolating. The ban was lifted on the 31st of May 2021. Bailiffs can now use enforcement action to evict tenants when required.

 

More rights to pet owners

Landlords can no longer automatically ban tenants from having pets in their property. The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government introduced the new guidelines under the Model Tenancy Agreement. Usually, landlords issue a blanket ban on pets across the properties they own.  If you have lived in a rental property, you will be all too familiar with pet bans.

Fortunately, consent for pets will now be the default position, and landlords will have to object in writing with 28 days of a pet request from a tenant. The landlord will have to provide a good reason, such as property size or surrounding tissues. For example, the property may be in a block where owning an active animal is impractical.

Landlords can charge higher deposits for tenants with pets so long as they fit within the cap of five weeks’ rent.

 

Eviction notice periods reduced to 4 months.

Notice periods were extended to six months in the pandemic as an emergency measure. They were decreased to four months at the start of June. Nearly half of landlords in the UK own one property and are vulnerable to rent arrears. The new measures will allow them to evict non-paying tenants and access justice.

 

Lifetime deposit

A lifetime deposit allows tenants to transfer their deposits between landlords when they move to a new property. Renters can move their deposits electronically instead of paying a deposit to their new landlord while waiting for a refund from the former landlord. Hopefully, the scheme will ease the pressure on renters to fund a second deposit while money is tied up elsewhere. Especially, as the average rental deposit in England is £1040 and around £1,750 for London – according to the Deposition Protection Service.

 

Help to Buy

The Help to Buy ran from 2013 to 2021, and many applications were extended until the 31st of May due to covid. Only first-time buyers can be involved in the new scheme, and loans are capped at 1.5 times the average first-time buyer home in that area.

Stay updated on housing regulations in the UK if you are moving house or renting.

A necklace can be the perfect finishing touch for any outfit, which goes for bridesmaid dresses. There are so many options for lengths, colors, and styles to choose from. How can you find the perfect bridesmaid necklace that will complement the wedding theme and flatter your bridesmaid’s dresses? Here are some tips that might help:

1. Keep it within your wedding theme

You will need to consider the theme of your wedding to narrow down your options. You’ll need accessories that fit the setting and location of your wedding. A casual lock necklace is a better choice for an outdoor wedding or beach wedding. You might choose a light, delicate necklace with freshwater pearls sprinkled on it or a simple chain with a gemstone drop. A formal wedding allows for dressier bridesmaid necklaces. Evening weddings are an excellent opportunity to shine with sparkling necklaces made of crystals and gemstones.

2. Choose a color

Your selection will also be affected by the color of your bridesmaid gowns. You don’t have to match the color of the bridesmaid dresses or the theme of your wedding necklaces. There are many shades of gemstones, freshwater pearls, and crystals. It is better to choose a chain that complements the colors than a necklace that matches them. Many brides choose neutral colors for their bridesmaids’ jewelry, such as champagne, clear crystal, white freshwater pearls, or light-colored gemstones. Warmer colors, such as ivory and champagne, will look great with accessories in warmer tones like champagne and champagne. Cool-toned accessories can be paired with cool-toned dresses in more excellent colors, such as purple, blue, or pink.

3. Take a look at the necklines

Consider the neckline of your bridesmaid dress and decide what necklace you will wear with it. A necklace should be cut to fit a V-neckline or scoop neck. You will find a necklace that is 16-18 inches in length works well.

A simple choker necklace can be worn to complement flatter jewel (high cut round) or bateau necklines. You can choose a chunky or straightforward necklace with multi-strands, but any length that extends to the neckline should be between 15 and 17 inches. This will complement your neckline.

Strapless and sweetheart necklines are very versatile and allow for a lot of space to display a gorgeous necklace. You can use almost any kind of necklace, choker, or pendant. You should choose one less than 20 inches long, so it doesn’t overhang the top of your dress.

Brides are increasingly choosing to have their bridesmaids wear different dresses. You should consider the different necklines of the dresses if this is the case. There are many options if you don’t want to buy the same necklaces for all your bridesmaids. There are several styles of chain that can be worn with any neckline. A simple necklace with one pearl drop might be the perfect addition to your dresses. If possible, look for necklaces with extender chains that allow them to be adjusted in length by at least 1″. This will enable you to adjust the necklace to fit different necklines.

Lariats and long necklaces can be worn in many different ways depending on the neckline. Necklaces with lengths ranging from 36 to 46 inches may be worn single-, double or even triple-stranded. Lariats, which are long, open-ended necklaces with no clasp and can be wrapped in many different ways, come in various lengths. You can purchase the same long chain for all your bridesmaids, and they will be able to wear it in the way that flatters their dresses.

Keeping your home clean offers many considerable benefits to your health. Vacuuming and dusting the carpet can help you breathe easier. A cluttered home can lead to stress, which can affect the body. If you have dirty, damp carpets in your bedroom, you may struggle with mold growth. If you don’t practice personal hygiene, you might develop harmful bacteria. In addition to all of these benefits, keeping your home clean can contribute to your overall well-being. So what illnesses can you prevent from maintaining a clean abode?

Stay Away From Harsh Cleaning Chemicals

Cleaning chemicals are subject to a common misconception that they are safe to use and do not harm human health. This is a false belief. The mildest of them can have toxic effects on our bodies, according to research. Their poisonous substances can contaminate soil, water, and air, harming plants, animals, and humans alike. If you want to go the extra mile with your health, you should opt for an eco friendly disinfectant instead of harsh chemicals. Their most notable benefit is that they are made with non-toxic chemicals with minimal or no harm to the environment. Additionally, they have a unique scent that makes them more appealing to consumers than other brands. Not to mention, they are great alternatives for those who don’t want to expose their family members or pets to potentially harmful chemicals like chlorine and ammonia, which can lead to respiratory problems in children and pets, respectively.

Why Keeping Your Home Clean Is Good For Your Health

A clean home makes you feel better about yourself and helps optimize your health to reduce your risk of diseases. Some significant health benefits of a clean home include:

 

  • Reduce stress levels: Studies have found that people who had the cleanest and most organized homes felt less stress and were more likely to sleep well.
  • Decrease risk of cancer: Scientists have found that living in a dirty home increases the risk of certain cancers. These cancers are caused by poor-quality air.
  • Increase energy levels: When you have cleaner air in your house, it allows for better breathing and helps regulate temperature, increasing energy levels.
  • Improve immune system: Washing your hands regularly can help improve your immune system by strengthening your body’s natural defenses against opportunistic infections.
  • Stops diseases entering the home: Insects and rats can carry harmful diseases, and a dirty house is far more inviting to these pests than a clean one.

A Clean House Can Reduce Allergies

Allergies are caused by more than just pet dander and dust. They can also be caused by many everyday things like your makeup, cleaning products, and even certain foods. Nevertheless, the accumulation of dust, dirt, animal dander, is and other common allergens in the bedroom are a major cause of asthma and other health problems for millions of people worldwide. The best way to prevent these is by using a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter and changing the filter regularly.

Stress Can Be Relieved By Decluttering

Clutter is a stress-inducing factor. Clutter can cause stress because it makes you feel overwhelmed and unable to find what you need among all the clutter. Additionally, it can cause you to feel like there is never enough time to notice things since you are always running after your possessions instead of focusing on what is essential. Decluttering should therefore be your priority. Rather than throwing things away, keep them neatly tucked inside cupboards and cabinets. Alternatively, if there is anything that you can live without, donate it to a goodwill organization.

Rats Are Attracted To Dirt

A dirty house can entice rats and bugs inside, where they can bring disease. Rats are a common urban pest, but the danger of rat infestation has been known for centuries. They can spread disease and cause structural damage, and they can devastate food sources and contaminate water supplies. If you give them no reason to enter your home, you will avoid the trail of destruction they bring.

Cleaning Is A Great Workout!

You might not believe it, but the act of cleaning is a great exercise. Moreover cleaning is one of the most physically demanding jobs. When you clean, we are working out our bodies and minds. Consider how much effort you have to exert when vacuuming or moving from room to room. A fitness tracker will allow you to see how much exercise you are getting if you perform a deep clean once a week. What’s great is that it is free, and you will get a clean house in the process! In addition, the extra movement will tire you out, which in turn should provide you with better quality sleep.

You Might Eat Better

Your fridge and food storage also need to be cleaned regularly. If you keep track of what you are eating, you may be surprised at how unhealthy your eating habits are. This could, in turn, give you the push to start eating healthier.

The Importance Of A Regular Cleaning Schedule 

With the help of a regular cleaning schedule, you can prevent dirt and bacteria from building up in your home. Regularly cleaning your home helps keep it healthy and safe while also making sure that it has a relaxing effect on you and creates a sense of peace. Essentially, if you don’t clean at least once a week, the bacteria in your home can increase and eventually lead to germs and other infections. 

Establish a cleaning schedule, even if it’s just once every three weeks. Take one day per week to make sure everything is taken care of, and then clean for about an hour each day after that. When you have everything ready to go, setting up a schedule is much easier. For example, if you cannot find the cleaning equipment, it will result in unnecessary time and effort spent on the cleaning process. Therefore, you should ensure that you have a space for all of your equipment and cleaning fluids.

Keeping your home clean will be beneficial to your physical and mental health. By keeping your home clean, you will keep the environment around you clean. The benefits of owning a clean home are endless, and by keeping your home clean, you will reap these benefits.

2022 is going to bring the Jewish communities one of the greatest Pesach celebrations that they have had in a very long time. 2020, and 2021 celebrations were dampened by the existence of Covid 19. Hotels, resorts, and entertainment venues were closed to try and prevent the spreading of the disease. In 2022 the Passover programs in Europe, and the programs all around the world are going to be livelier, more inspirational, and possibly more meaningful.

Passover celebrations allow the Jewish people to celebrate their release from slavery and oppression.

Delta-8 is a man-made cannabinoid that has been legalized in the United States. While Delta-8 THC is still technically legal under federal law, there are many strict state laws that have banned D8 products.

This means Delta-8 being legal federally in the US does not automatically mean Kentucky will legalize its medicinal or recreational usage statewide. Because of how strictly KY laws cannabis, using Delta-8 would be illegal, and possessing it might get you in criminal penalties if you were to get caught with it.

To put things into perspective though, here is what has happened in other states with regards to legalizing Delta-8.

 

The Game-Changing 2018 Farm Bill

With the passing of the 2018 farm bill, which stated that hemp is legal, Delta-8 THC was made legal federally to be produced from industrial hemp.

This means that you can get approval for your research or use if it is being grown under an approved pilot program for industrial hemp containing less than 0.3% of the psychoactive ingredient THC, which KY has not done yet.

 

Delta-8 In KY Is Legal Federally for Research Purposes Only

Despite the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill in congress allowing Delta-8, only universities with official state documentation can produce and study Delta-8 legally according to the attorney general’s guidance issued in August 2019.

There are three universities allowed by the Kentucky Board of Agriculture (KBA) to do this: The University of Louisville, Transylvania University, and Murray State University.

As of now D8 cannot be sold to the public or used recreationally in Kentucky. These universities are limited to research only, and there is no set date for when permission will be given by KBA to sell D8 products to the public.

 

Delta-8: Still Fully Banned In KY

Although it is legal federally, that does not mean that Delta-8 THC is legal in other states with stricter laws on cannabis like KY.  KY state law still strictly bans all forms of marijuana derivatives and leaves no room for interpretation.

This means regardless of if you have a medical card or were carrying it illegally, being caught with Delta-8 would get you criminal charges under state law despite federal legality in other parts of the US.

 

No Delta-8 Dispensaries allowed in KY

As of now, it is also illegal to have a dispensary for selling Delta-8 in Kentucky, so the only way you can legally purchase it is if you go through one of your three above-mentioned universities.

There is a possibility that it will likely be legalized eventually in KY since hemp and CBD are now legal nationally in the US. The first steps toward legalization might come sooner than we would expect though as some of KY’s most populated counties have started asking lawmakers about legalizing medical marijuana.

As the people of Kentucky continue to show interest in legal medical marijuana, they might change their laws on Delta-8 THC in the future. Until then it will stay illegal to possess or sell under state law while remaining federally legal in the US.

 

Is Marijuana Legal in Kentucky?

Marijuana and cannabis are considered schedule 1 substances, hence illegal for recreational or medicinal purposes.

Any person found to be in possession of these may face a fine up to $250-, and 45-days jail time.

 

How Is It Extracted?

Delta-8 THC and many others like it are made from hemp oil, a substance containing trace amounts of THC (less than 0.3 percent). To produce Delta-8 THC, an extract from the whole plant is used to make a concentrate that can then be manufactured into products such as tinctures, massage oils, and edibles.

To be considered legal, these products must have no more than 0.3 percent of Delta 9 THC (the psychoactive compound found inside the flower of the marijuana plant).

 

Is Delta-8 Legal in All 50 States?

Delta-8-THC is federally legal under the Hemp Farming Act of 2018, but each state has the right to determine its own stance on Delta-8. Delta-8-THC is illegal in Kentucky according to state law. So far, only 11 states in total have banned D8 products.

These include Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Kentucky, Idaho, Iowa, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, New York, North Dakota, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont, and Washington.

The state of Colorado banned D8 THC once their hemp farms were prepared to enter commercial production at the end of 2018. But as long as you have a government license to grow it, you can continue producing high-THC hemp if you’re located in one of these states or cities without penalty from the law.

But even though Delta 8 is federally legal and considered safe for human consumption by many experts across multiple industries…this cannabinoid isn’t legal in Kentucky yet!

 

Can You Purchase Hemp Seeds in Kentucky?

Hemp comes from the same family of plants as marijuana but only contains 0.3% THC or less, making it an extremely low-THC and safe alternative to smoking Marijuana for those who want their feet in both worlds, so to speak.

So yes, this means you can purchase hemp plants and seeds at Kentucky stores legally because there are no laws against growing hemp products! But it’s not considered legal to sell anything with Delta 8 content until/unless Kentucky specifically changes its stance on D8 rules and regulations.

 

Can You Buy D8 Products Online?

Delta-8 can be easily bought online and delivered to your home. Now before you go running out the door and try buying some D8 online, make sure your state also has laws in place that allow you to purchase as well as consume these products.

Make sure you’re up to date on your state laws before hitting the “submit order” button online.

You can also check with your local government office for updates. This way when you go to purchase it—it’s 100% legal!
