Alcohol can enhance the side effects of medication. Avoid mixing alcohol with any medications, and ask your doctor about possible consequences if you do.

Provide safe transportation for your party guests, as well as non-alcoholic beverages.

He said none from the Highlands County Sheriffs Office have ever failed to be certified. We train year around, said Albritton, whose K9, Mico, performed well in the test. Highlands County deputy Steve Worley said the K9s receive 200 hours of training before becoming initially certified. Typically when training a dog for drug detection, he said, they use marijuana first because it has the strongest odor. The dogs are trained to recognize odors from other drugs as well, including cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and Ecstasy.
