Hedaia’s Story

Six years ago in January, Lori Carlson’s daughter, Hedaia Madi, and her unborn daughter, Madelynn Nichole, were killed in car crash caused by a drugged impaired driver in the state of Virginia.  Hedaia was only 20 years old. She had everything to live for and instead of planning for a baby shower, her family was planning for a funeral. Her family still grieves.

The driver was only charged with reckless driving. Even though he had a host of prior drug possession convictions, tested positive for marijuana (and had more in his possession) and had a prior arrest for dealing, he was back out on the streets in no time. That is because Virginia does not have a zero per se law for all drugs.
