Goodness, you people are mean. Have none of you ever made a mistake or had any problems in your life?
Give the poor girl a break. She seems like a kind, nice person who is going through a rough patch. Most first-time offenders don't spend significant time in jail, whether they are celebrities or not.

The drugs do not have to be illegal for you to be under the influence. The laws ARE explained clearly that items even such as cold medicine can get you a ticket for being under the influence. It is quite common to get tickets for being under the influence of prescribed and over the counter medications. The medication bottles don't need to tell you. It isn't their responsibility either. When was the last time you were drinking a beer and on the side of the bottle it said "warning: it is illegal to drink and drive"?

Division 11, Chapter 12, Article 2> Section 23152 (a) It is unlawful for any person who is under the influence of any alcoholic beverage or drug, or under the combined influence of any alcoholic beverage and drug, to drive a vehicle.

Notice it said ANY drug. That should be simple enough for anyone to understand.

Wow!!! there are a lot of mean spirited people ready to attack this woman. WHY? Because shes beautiful? Because she's successful? Because she might already be suffering and in pain? WHERE IS YOUR MERCY PEOPLE? YOU ARE NOT HERE TO JUDGE HER OR ANYONE ELSE...Stop the hate.

Here is an idea: go out an help someone less fortunate than yourself. Then write down how good it made you feel and why you would want to share this experience with someone else and pursuade them to do likewise.

Seek forgiveness for your hate

i can not believe some of the mean comments being said about HL --- i grew up with HL in the same neighborhood and went to high school with her, i was a few years older and shy but what i remember of her ---- i thought she was a really nice down to earth girl, she had that look of being stuckup but she was nice, i remembered i liked her mom alot she was really cool i used to chat with her at times when i was working at one of the local grocery stores when i was a bagboy, when getting shopping carts in the parking lot her mom was enjoyable to talk to, i used to hide behind her mom's open drivers side car door kneeling down so my bosses would not see me when her mom and i would be talking away....
