On April 20th, 2014, the Scottsdale HOGS Chapter put on a HOGS with Hearts charity ride in order to raise money to send kids with muscular dystrophy to MDA summer camp. Our attorney, Craig Rosenstein donated to the cause in hopes to raise enough money to give perhaps a few children the opportunity to have fun and just be a kid at summer camp for a week.
This past weekend, Rosenstein Law Group was happy to kick off the holiday weekend on Saturday at Wingstock held at the Mesa Amphitheater. The event kicked off with an Easter egg hunt at 10:30 am, and at 11 am was open to the public for a fun-filled day of wings, beer, and live music.

In a recent court case, Maricopa Judge Katherine Cooper ruled that the use of marijuana extract, a variation of the plant used to make marijuana products such as candies and lollipops, is legal. Judge Cooper's decision overruled a view held by some that the 2010 Arizona Medical Marijuana Act only allows the consumption of actual pieces of the marijuana plant.
This weekend the Rosenstein Law Group was at the Chandler Great American BBQ and Beer Festival, where BBQ smells filled that air, the San Tan beer was flowing, and award winning headliners Blues Travelers closed the event with a bang!
On Friday, February 28th, 2014, Kerry Kennedy, daughter of the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, and former wife to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, was acquitted on DUI Drug charges.

As many know, a breathalyzer is a machine that police officers and prosecutors often use to measure a person's blood alcohol level (BAC), when they feel a person is driving under the influence. How a breathalyzer works is, it takes a small sample of a person's breath and estimates how much alcohol is in the sample. Then the officers and prosecutors use these results to estimate how much alcohol is in a person's blood. In the state of Arizona, the legal limit of a person 21 years and older is a BAC of 0.08%. If a person is asked to perform a breath analysis test and the machine records the person's BAC as over the legal limit, then they will be arrested and prosecuted for DUI, and the breathalyzer results could become central to the prosecution's case.
This past weekend the Rosenstein Law Group attended the bi-monthly Medical Farmers Market, hosted by CAMP 420. CAMP 420 is the Campaign Against Marijuana Prohibition, a local activist group in Arizona. These activists are proud supporters of the medical marijuana law, Arizona Medical Marijuana Act (AMMA). CAMP 420 works to educate communities about cannabis, and change Arizona's severe marijuana laws.
Nowadays, with technology being essential in daily life, there is an "app" for pretty much everything and anything you want. Recently BACtrack, a breathalyzer brand trusted by schools, hospitals, and law enforcement, released a new form of breathalyzer called the BACtrack Mobile Breathalyzer. This new product is a compact breathalyzer, which costs around $150. It also has a mobile app anyone with a smart phone can download and use to track their blood alcohol content (BAC) whenever they've had an alcoholic beverage.
