TN care should summarily discontinue coverage of all narcotics. Then this would be a moot point.

Are you kidding me probation??????????It's fraud, hey Tennessee get off your butts and do something smart for a change, Isn't fraud a felony? Felonies go to jail or prision, WAKE UP TENNESSEE, NO WONDER YOUR STATE SUXS, PEOPLE CAN GET AWAY WITH JUST ABOUT ANYTHING, AND GET A SLAP ON THE WRIST FOR FELONIES.

This is certainly an absolute embarassment to all Tennesseeans. PROBATION?? I don't even know what to say. I think we need to expose these judges Nationally that continue to make a mockery out of our judicial system.

How in the world are we going to send a message to the rest of these crooks that are abusing our system if we continue to slap the ones we find on the wrist? I would like to see an investigation on this story. Let's expose the proscecutor, DA, and the judge. We cannot let this abuse continue as it is hurting all of us.

Hey USA Citizen, I realize that your state is perfect an all so since you think TN "SUXS" you can stop reading news from this area and concentrate on your own state.

You hit the nail on the head there! I could believe that. I use to see TN recipients driving luxury cars all the time too. Nothing made me happier than to see a pearly white lexus pull into the parking lot and have a fancy dressed lady come into the office and present her TN care card. I am glad they caught this woman but they need to dole out more punishment so that maybe the next tncare abuser will think twice.
