The different types of domestic abuse

Many New Yorkers believe that domestic abuse only involves physical violence. While physical violence is a form of abuse, it is merely one of many tactics that abusers may use on their victims.

Despite pledges, minorities in NYC continue to be targeted for low-level drug offenses

For decades, marijuana’s inclusion on the federal government's list of Schedule 1 controlled substances has been the subject of much debate and controversy. In more recent years, the possible medicinal benefits of marijuana have come to light and 23 states and Washington D.C. passed measures legalizing the drug for medical use. Additionally, today four states and D.C. have passed laws legalizing the recreational use of marijuana and several cities, including New York City, have passed measures to decriminalize the possession of small amounts of the drug.
