I have mixed feelings about this. She was wrong for providing the drugs to him; however, did she hold a gun to his head? I am TRULY sorry for the loss to his family. But, we do make choices; some good, some not.

Man that sucks! f#@! that s@#% Each person is personally responsible for their own bodily integrity, no one else can make you od, this aint murder in the least, maybe you could consider a crime was committed but sho as heck aint no murder. Prayers for this lady and her family to get through all this o.k.

She needs to be provided with drugs too: an appetite suppressant, fat blocker, B-6 and B-12. Too bad we cant execute this one, she stands to eat the prison out of business.

The state law is, if you give or sell a schedule 1 or schedule 2 drug to anyone, and are not licensed to do so, you can be charged with second degree murder. That's the bottom line. It's up to the court to decide from this point forward.

Her providing an addict with drugs is the same as giving a serial killer a gun and telling him to go after someone. An addict will finally OD if they are continually givem drugs to use.
She is just as guilty as if she had of put a gun to his head.

I've not read anywhere what drug it was, so I'm assuming they were either illegal drugs or prescription drugs. Either way, it was illegal for her to supply them to him. No, she didn't put a gun to his head, but for all we know she could have been giving him one thing and telling him it was tylenol.

This boy knew what he was getting, and knew what he was doing with it and to his body,and he didnt care ,he was obviously an addict, he could just as easily drank himself to death, or taken a bunch of coricidin or nyquil and died,and then who would be getting a second degree murder charge, the walgreens?!? the liquor store?!? for all you know he was sitting around all day shooting up and she sold him a joint,this punishment certainly does not fit the crime.

I agree with your post. If he had not have gotten the drugs from tubby, he would have found them from another. Addicts don't care where the drugs come from. I am not saying that I agree with what she did, but most of the responsiblity is/was his

Well, it looks like the junkie/"oinker(?) hung the both of them, but I do believe the hanging is a thing of the WAAAAAAY PAST! Come back to 2008. BTW... I think even if hanging were still a thing of today, they would have to find a different execution style for tubby!

An addict is an addict.If he knew she had drugs he probably worried her to death for the drug.He knew what he was taking and probably took too much of the drug to stay high.I don't think she should be charged with murder,if it wasn't her,he would have gotten it somewhere else.It's not like he wasn't an adult.He just didn't give a damn,like most addicts.

as much information as there is on tv, radio, magazines, papers etc. about drugs & thier effect & damage on your mind & your body, then a person obviously doesn't give a hang about themselves to get into them in the first place. why start? if they want to destroy themselves there is nothing anyone can do to stop them. this woman didn't deliberately kill anyone. she should be charged with sale of whatever. looks like they get more time for that than killing someone anyway as far as serving the actual sentence.

I wish they would start charging more of these drug addict trash with murder. It would make our world a lot better place. If you ask me what has the world really lost with either
