How do field sobriety tests work?

When someone is pulled over by police in Atlantic City due to an officer suspecting the driver is under the influence of drugs or alcohol, there are certain steps the officer takes to determine the driver's level of impairment. One of these steps is field sobriety testing. There are three individual sobriety tests that make up the Standard Field Sobriety Test. When properly administered, this assessment has been found to be quite accurate in determining one's balance, coordination and other abilities.

What does "schedule" mean in a drug possession charge?

Drugs are classified into five groups or schedules based on their potential for abuse or dependency and whether or not they have any legitimate medical use. When someone receives a drug possession charge in New Jersey the drug's schedule is specified. Schedule I drugs are considered the most dangerous because they have the highest potential for abuse, possibly causing both physical and psychological dependence. They have no known medical benefits. Examples of Schedule I drugs are heroin, peyote and ecstasy.
