This week in ethanol . . .
Coaching major college football is among the most stressful, pressure filled jobs on planet Earth.  It makes being a physician or a lawyer seem like a walk in the park.  You absolutely cannot function at a high level in such a job with a substance abuse problem.  Here's hoping Steve Sarkisian get's himself right and comes back better than ever.
Luke Gatti showed us how it only takes 9 minutes, an empty stomach, and an ample amount of ethanol to ruin your future employment prospects.  Fortunately, what we do at 19 doesn't define us.  Unfortunately, the internet has a long memory.

The city of Portland was one of the last communities to ban the sale of street urchins in city parks. These kindergartners seemed happy to find new families, all except the boy fifth from the left.

Can you identify the offensive cocktail from this central Oregon restaurant's menu? Hint: it helps to be over 50 or from the south.

What happened to you America?  You used to be cool.
A federal law that aims to curb childhood obesity means that, in dozens of states, bake sales must adhere to nutrition requirements that could replace cupcakes and brownies with fruit cups and granola bars.

Tonight, Alafair reads from her 10th published novel.  She began her career in the Multnomah County DA's Office.

A tip of the cap to Google.  What the Oregon Legislative Assembly couldn't or wouldn't do, Google has accomplished.  Many of my client's have already benefited.  An end is in sight to #mugshotextortion

There's not much doubt as to your guilt when you upload a video of your homicide on your twitter page and state your motive.  Screen shot of Bryce Williams' (Vester Flanagan) twitter page moments before it was taken down.

How does this man find time to coach Oregon Duck football and stalk Gigi Hadid in New York no less? That's the real story TMZ.

Oregon is one state that allows you to seal many misdemeanor and low level felony convictions after a waiting period.  Often times, an arrest that does not result in a conviction may be sealed as well.  The process can take several months to accomplish so its best to seek an "expungement" as soon as you're eligible.
Many people who have never faced charges, or have had charges dropped, find that a lingering arrest record can ruin their chance to secure employment, loans and housing.

Irrefutable proof that the New York bar exam is too easy.

This article from JAMA Psychiatry echos what I've seen in my practice over the past few years:  "[T]he demographic composition of heroin users entering treatment has shifted over the last 50 years such that heroin use has changed from an inner-city, minority-centered problem to one that has a more widespread geographical distribution, involving primarily white men and women in their late 20s living outside of large urban areas."

The JAMA's study further concludes:  "Part of this increase in heroin use and apparent migration to a new class of users appears to be due to the coincidental increase in the abuse of prescription opioids over the last 20 years, arguably accelerated by the release of OxyContin in the mid-1990s, which made large quantities of oxycodone hydrochloride readily available for inhalation and intravenous injection. Given that prescription opioids are legal, are prescribed by a physician, and are thus considered trustworthy and predictable (eg, the dose is clearly specified on a distinctive tablet or pill), many users viewed these drugs as safer to use than other illicit substances."

Sadly, these prescription opioids have provided us with a new generation of addicts.

Sometimes, as a condition of probation, you're required to complete a quantity of community service.  If the court allows you to do community service through a non-profit organization some options in the Portland area are set out in the link below.  

Oregon courts do NOT allow community service to be done "online" so don't fall for that scam.  Failure to do court ordered community service will result in jail time.   #communityservice
