Maybe this will be the time they take action and do the right thing. CEMS employees open your eyes to the truth . He was sentenced a year ago to attend mandatory drug treatment meetings and be drug tested on a regular basis. He tested positive whole bunch of times. What has your employer done to stop this why was he allowed access to narcotics? They don't care. Get the other people that own this company go with them and start your own. It's pretty clear they don't care about your job or you.
Getting license back next week watch entire interview on ABC News 24 Hallum said they already talked to state of Arkansas and will have license back next week and back up and running. It's not that big of a deal.
Thankful

They didn't care who they voted for then and will not care in the next elections. Whoever is buying, they will be selling.
I'll say it again for those who have comprehension problems. People have been selling votes for years. They don't care who they are voting for, they only want to be compensated. It's just the way it is.
The FBI got involved because people got caught and it's a federal offense. If someone else gets caught, they will be involved again. It's going to happen in elections all over the world. Count on it! You can't change that fact and neither can the FBI.
It led to not only breaking the law here but also to what is going on at Crittebden EMS. Thank God for those who uphold the law and serve and protect us.

I don't forsee any candidate currently running assuming they are above the law and being this desperate to repeat this type of behavior.

Common sense and a little integrity is all that is needed.

One two three. One two ..... Three. 1. 2. 3
3x12= 36 months . 3 years is 36 months.
It hasn't been 36 months . It hasn't been 3 years. All together ONE TWO THREE years. 1 plus 1 plus 1 = 3 years. Your probation isn't over.

None of you has even the faintest idea of how corrupt this election was, or of the degree to which state officials nearly broke their necks looking the other way. If the FBI had not gotten involved, Hallum would still be in the state legislature. The kid glove treatment he and his daddy got in federal court was nauseating. I know that we need to reserve the prison beds for axe murderers, but couldn't we turn a pot smoker or two loose to make room for people who steal elections? Am I the only one who thinks that election stealing might be a more serious corrosion of our society than growing hemp? Home detention? You mean grounding the offender so he can watch HBO from his couch for 9 months? For STEALING AN ELECTION?
Come on people, get mad. We don't have to put up with this shit.

[QUOTE who="I got FU&%_D!!"]These guys rigged an election which put them in a position to dictate policy make laws and they were sentenced to home confinement and probation by a Federal Judge... Are you kidding me? I was caught with a few marijuana plants when I was 21 years old and they sent me to a Federal Prison for 2 years and went out of their way to effectively ruined my f'n life![/QUOTE]

This has nothing to do with drugs or the use of them by anyone charged. To compare these people to drug users is crossing the line.
