More people may face DUI charges over cannabis

A growing number of people in South Carolina and across the country report using cannabis recreationally, especially as a growing number of states and cities are moving towards decriminalization or legalization. This has sparked some concerns about an increase in driving while intoxicated although the science related to driving after cannabis use is limited and far less detailed than that related to alcohol use. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, around 20.5 million Americans admitted to driving while under the influence of alcohol while 12 million said they drove while high after consuming cannabis.

What to know about hacking laws

Hacking is among the more recognizable computer crimes that a person could commit. South Carolina residents who have been victims of data breaches or similar events have likely had their personal information stolen or otherwise accessed by a hacker. It is important to note that hacking is only a crime if a person doesn't have permission to access a network. In some cases, companies or other entities will invite outside parties to attempt to access their servers.
