Finally, justice for the victims and survivors of Robert Reaves drugs. His drug dealers the lying daughter Melissa and her lying boyfriend caused heart ache and pain to many families in Paris. They somehow had everyone convinced that the bath salts and synthetic marijuana were safe. I'm sure they never did any of those drugs otherwise they would not have been able to function and they would have ended up in the hospital like all their victims did.

The 2 million dollar loss in Robert's assets is nothing compared to the heart-wrenching loss of lives, health, disaster, devastation, horrible tragedy, loss of homes, broken families, divorces, loss of reputation, and I could go on that Robertís drugs inflicted on his victims. I was one of the fortunate ones whose family was able to spend thousands of dollars to have these drugs extracted out of my system. These drugs left me with too many health issues of which I will struggle with for the rest of my life. From this day on I will cheer the financial destruction of Robert Reaves and his family.

Everyone needs to be very careful now that the drug dealers are shut down because the problem is about to become a nightmare for the town of Paris, the with-drawls are worst than the drugs. If the users are not able to get the drugs they could be very dangerous if they don't get cleaned out thru Rehab. Hopefully they have a clinic setup to help the victims while they are with-drawing. My prayers are with the victims of Robert Reaves drug peddling.

Weak people get hooked on drugs, and regardless of the laws, people will still get them.

Making anything illegal only makes more money for the drug dealers, and takes more taxes away from working people to "fight" the drugs, by creating bigger government and more government jobs. It is a viscious neverending cycle, and that is why certain drugs are illegal, because there is more money and more drug abuse by keeping them taboo.

Certain drugs are illegal because they have dangerous consequences, especially in the hands of youth.

Some of the drugs that are prescription should be illegal, for the same reason imo.

If people are going to abuse the drugs, they need to suffer consequences, not the kids or other people who have to suffer consequences of the bad choice that they made.

People who sell and deal with that form of misery, namely "hell" should be put away, so that they will no longer be a consequence and cause more needless suffering to others.

This is not a victimless crime. It's a crime that usually hurts more than death, and keeps people in fear all of the time that has to be around it.

Learn to cope people. These drugs are a living hell in a bottle, and they need to be erradicated.

Nah. The government cares about the money they confiscated, not the victims.

Yep. The more something is made illegal and taboo, the more that people will want it, and the more common it will become. Prohibition doesn't work, never has, never will.

Social engineering: War on drugs, war on religion, war on conservatives, banning gays, banning guns, political correct movement, etc, always backfires on them in the long run.

Live and let live people. Vote out the facsist Democrats, the race-baiters, and the religious zealots. Vote Libertarian, Independent conservatives, or true Republicans, not RINO's. Wake up before America becomes another failed state.

Oh, crock of $hit. If people want something that is illegal and screws up your brains, they have something wrong with them.

I'm all about live and let live until it infringes on my rights, and my family with misinformation...one thing, these idiots telling people there are no medical consequences..now there are legal consequences too.

And speaking of rights, and live and let live, these little kids, who love their parents, who love the drugs more than they love their kids, and would sell them for money to buy drugs, sell there bodies for money to buy drugs, neglect them and everything else.....the people that do this stuff, do not care.

They only care about the next fix. There is not enough foster care to take in all the kids affected by these drugs.

It's really time to step it up. If we have two million from raids from this stuff, that money should go to helping drug addicts cope with something and get them clean. It should go to fight all of the other crime that these drugs have caused, and cut it to the root.

You say saying no is what is causing the problem, that it is legislating the problem.....No.

Like murder, we know not to, and people don't do it because they they are told no. It's a boundary, it's a line, there is a reason we don't murder...it hurts the murderer, the murdered, the murdered's family...and the list goes on.

The same reason applies why we shouldn't use these drugs. The only people that don't seem to get that are the already drug addicted brain, which is more than half the population I'm guessing.

Sounds like you want a police state. So much for the land of the free. If a weak person wants to ruin their lives with drugs, nobody can stop them, and certainly no law will. Just make it easier to kill them when they rob, steal, rape, kill, or abuse people, as that will help curb their kind.

More drug law = more drugs and crime. Study history. Don't become a Socialist NAZI.

Nothing is further from the truth.

The land of the free is free to those who respect the rules.

Being "free" doesn't mean you can murder someone and get away with it.

Being "free" doesn't mean that you can do drugs, go out of your mind and steal from other people and neglect your kids, rape, rob or abuse people.

I personally think we should get rid of some rules, but drug abuse is not a victimless crime, nor is drinking and driving. We all are responsible for ourselves, drug induced or not.

Drugs are not an excuse for behavior, but it causes bad behavior and studies have shown it. It costs lives, and not just their own, but for other people who cross their paths. This shit creates psychopaths. Might as well be a zombie apocolypse, and if you have ever seen a kid, that was hooked on drugs that goes from a sweet innocent kid, to a raving lunitic, gets locked up in jail, then the light comes back on in their eyes, and they see what they have done in their drug induced stupor, and the saddness that creates, and the guilt, then you would know what I am talking about.

I'm talking about real, live people here. I'm talking about kids, who not ONLY do not have the ability to make those decisions for themselves...it should be the equivilant of raping a child to sell drugs to minors. It kills their tiny souls, like a rapist kills tiny wombs.

Thank you so much for your post. I am a mother who has been going though this with my boys. Your statement is heart warming. I am heart broken even though my children are adults now. People don't realize that these drugs hurt the whole family.

I'm a mid fifty something attractive male who had a a weak spot for younger women. Mid life crisis of sorts
InMarch of 2011, I was introduced to bath salts by a young lady. This substance was legal and readily available for purchase in local head shops.
I became highly addicted to the substance and on the morning of May 27,2011 I jumped out of bed like any other day grabbing my phone off the night stand on my way. I fell flat on my face and couldn't get up. Thank god I'd grabbed my phone because I could not have reached it from the floor.
I called my neighbor to come help me up however I couldn't stay up and we called 911
EMS told me it looked like I'd had a major stroke which was confirmed at the hospital.
Thus the end of my mid life crisis. I
I heard through the grapevine that the young lady had died of a brain aneurism but,not confirmed.
I lost everything including my home and business.
I spent 6 months in a rehab hospital where I made a goal of walking my daughter down the isle the following December. A goal I'm happy to say I made.
Then a year in a nursing home with limited therapy.
I'm currently in assisted living with my left arm and leg still mostly paralyzed
