Cabinet of Family Services Employee Arrested for Possession of Controlled Substance and Public Intoxication
Darren Doyle, story:
A state employee has been arrested for public intoxication of meth and other charges according to the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office.
In a released statement, the Sheriff's Office said they responded to the parking lot on October 10, 2018 of the Cabinet of Family Services on a call of a possible intoxicated employee. While deputies were on their way to the call, they said they received another tip that the suspect was possibly passed out behind the wheel of her vehicle in the parking lot.
Deputies said once they arrived, they found Stacy Collins (35), of Bowling Green, who admitted to snorting meth earlier in the day.
According to the statement, Collins produced a small baggie that she said was meth. Deputies also found a cellophane wrapper in the floorboard of Collins’ vehicle and a rolled-up five-dollar bill, both with drug residue, believed to be methamphetamine.
Stacy Collins was arrested for Public Intoxication-controlled substance and Possession of Controlled Substance, 1st degree, 1st offense; she was lodged in Hart County Jail where she is being held on a $5,000 bond.
“People who hold positions of trust, like at the Cabinet of Family Services, should be held to a higher standard," said Sheriff Shane Doyle, "but regardless of the position or place of employment, the Sheriff’s Office will always enforce the law.”

Ruining people’s lives because of drug use does nothing to curb drug use, nor does it benefit the community or the user. The War on Drugs has caused untold of suffering and death, increased violence and shredded the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Drugs are a medical problem, prohibition is a social and legal problem. If prohibition was going to work there should be by now some positive results after all the loss of liberties and life not to mention the billions of dollars wasted. After 40 some years of this assault on personal liberty drugs are more potent, less expensive, and addiction/drug use is at an all time high affecting all segments of our society. It is time that we treat drugs as a health issue, reduce the danger and harm associated with drug use/addiction and place an emphasis on rehabilitation and abstinence. If illegal drugs were properly controlled we could: Destroy the profits/money associated from prohibition and end much of the violence. Prevent underage use of addictive drugs, criminals will sell to anyone. If drugs were provided in a clinical setting only adults would have access. Dosage and strength of drugs would be controlled preventing death from overdoses. Taxpayers would benefit from the decrease in crime and prison, cost of drugs legally produced is quite low. Addicts will not be selling drugs to your and my children to support their habits nor will they have to rob and steal.
