Reality TV star Mama June arrested for suspected drug possession

Television viewers in Maryland familiar with Mama June Shannon, who has appeared in the programs "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" and "Mama June: From Not to Hot," saw in her headlines recently after she was arrested at an Alabama gas station. A press conference presented by the Macon County Sheriff's Office informed the public that she and her boyfriend had been involved in an apparent domestic violence incident. When deputies responded, they discovered that the 39-year-old reality television star appeared to be in possession of cocaine and drug paraphernalia. The sheriff's office awaits laboratory results to confirm that the substance was cocaine.

Younger Americans more likely to be arrested than older adults

People in Maryland and elsewhere in the United States age 26 and younger are more likely to get arrested than previous generations. This is what researchers discovered when conducting a study to evaluate arrest rates and patterns. In general, arrest rates are rising fastest for white Americans and women. The study also linked increasing arrest and conviction rates to reduced marriage chances and lower wages and family income.

Doctor shopping leads to criminal and personal issues

With millions of Americans struggling with drug addiction, chances are that there are few families who have not experienced the tragedy of seeing a loved one falling into addiction. For many, the trouble begins simply enough with legitimate prescriptions for opioid painkillers following a surgery or injury. A doctor may overprescribe or a patient may overuse the prescription, seeking refills after the pain of the original injury has subsided.
