As reported by the American-Statesman’s Mark D. Wilson, Hays County sheriff’s deputies have arrested a Dripping Springs High School student on drug charges. Authorities had responded to three separate drug overdose calls in a week involving Dripping Springs High school students, and found that they had ingested LSD. Alyssa Qualls, 18, has been charged with delivery of a controlled substance to a child, a second-degree felony, and the manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance, the sheriff’s office said.
Lilly C Tai: I really hope all the people who OD’d go to jail as well.
Zoë Love: They should go to rehab. Long term. Jail only creates professional criminals.
Eric Hoffmann: If you’re for jailing people who have used drugs simply because they committed a crime, I suggest you think about the implications of that, especially since sentencing requirements are entirely arbitrary as are most drug laws.
Santos Antonio Garcia: She committed a crime. She hurt people. Her choice.
Stefan Adamcik: She is young she made a mistake. Glad no one was hurt. She deserves a second chance after she pays her dues.
RM Jones: She’s a drug dealer. I wonder what if any time she will serve.
Lachelle Nettles: Praying for Alyssa, the other children affected by this, and all of our children.
Alejandro Carb: Somone is offended. If you sell drugs in school, you deserve to do time. Serious time for a serious drug. Don’t like guns in school? Well I don’t like drugs in school. Period. This girls deserves jail time.
Seamus All: She made a mistake, chalk it up to youthful ignorance. Feel free to chime in if you’ve never made a mistake.
