Michigan's Wetland Wonders

Paul Bohn, Esq.

Fall brings about many changes to the environment, especially in Michigan, allowing for a great opportunity to explore the wildlife. Michigan has many Wetland Wonders scattered across the southern portion of the state. These areas offer excellent wildlife viewing, bird watching, paddling, and hiking opportunities.

Drones Are Taking Over Human Insurance Inspection

Paul Bohn, Esq.

While drones are becoming increasingly popular for recreational use, they are also entering the market in a more practical fashion - insurance evaluations. The long, irritating process involving home or car insurance claims is being accelerated by the use of drones. Traditionally, an insurance claim begins with the customer contacting the insurance company, waiting for a representative to inspect the damage, and within what could span several weeks, receive their reimbursement.

What Every Parent Should Know About Teenagers and Vaping

Mark Mandell, Esq.

Vaping is a new trend that has come about in the last ten years. Its popularity has risen due to claims that vaping is much safer than regular tobacco products. Vaping is accomplished through e-cigarettes or vape pens, which use an atomizer to heat liquid to create a vapor that can be inhaled like a regular cigarette. Vaping is a popular party "activity" for teenagers, even as young as seventh grade. Teenagers are attracted to vaping due to the availability of fruit flavored oils that are then vaped and emanate a fruit smell and taste. Teens will also have competitions when vaping, such as an activity called "cloud chasing," during which participants will compete to blow as much smoke that person can create with his or her vaping pen.

The Reality of the Marijuana Industry

Paul Bohn, Esq.

On January 1, 2018 the nation's largest source of marijuana economy, California, will legalize marijuana for recreational use. While many current and future dispensary owners are excited about the new legislation, there is a significant road block to creating a fully functional business - lack of financial support. Lack of financial support isn't a reference to revenue, attracting consumers isn't a problem, but lack of financial support from banks is. Many banks around the nation are hesitant to support businesses that are still illegal under federal law, which leaves many dispensaries with more cash than they can handle.

EPA Moves to Repeal "Waters of the U.S" Regulation

Paul Bohn, Esq.

The Trump administration has taken another step to remove environmental regulations created under the Obama administration. Last Wednesday, they formally moved to repeal the 2015 Waters of the U.S regulation which will allow them to re-evaluate the definition of U.S waters. In addition to the previous rescinding of the 2015 Clean Water Rule, these decisions align with President Trump's Feb. 28th executive order.
