Just an observation:

Many Professionals do Pot, she was not nailed with Cocaine. It's only a story because she won the Lottery and it's quite possible that she has invested the bulk of her money.She may have had this BF before she won & you don't dump someone you love simply because you now have money. Her choices may be poor at present but let's not cast stones at this woman. Perhaps she will make changes moving forward. 

Skeptical time will spin a most curious yarn from this point forward ......

but lets take a look back at a wee bit of history   and a hard bit of truth

    Why is it always way too easy for losers like this to win?

    I play HARD, play trends, work hard, never been arrested, not into drugs and I can't win Jack sh*t!  It isn't fair for real!

    Oh well, when she blows all her jackpot on drugs and bail money, she'll just win another jackpot because it's way too easy for her to win.  But instead of screwing us all out of another jackpot maybe she'll end up in prison where she can't buy tickets, or will just overdose and off herself.

    " For Losers like this to win"..She is Not a loser, she WON. The Losers are you & l who are seen tearing up their tickets after checking them against the results.

      Thanks for referencing this previous post, because seeing the comments that were posted then it is very very obvious as to why the negativity to this lady.  Too bad, she's black she won.  You didn't. Move on rather than showing your true colors and being sore losers.  Yeah she's made mistakes now and maybe had a part of living off the system ( though seem to have left out was due to her having a disabled child) but its her life her wins.  The majority of lottery winners are not black. So the majority of lottery winners who screw up their winnings are not black either.

      Take Risks: If you win, you'll be happy.  If you lose, you will be wiser...

        I was one of those people who disagreed with hearsetrax  back in spring because i felt it was unfair to speculate. Even with this knowledge of her recent arrest, i stand by what i said 5 months ago. There was nothing on that article to suggest she would waste that fortune. So the only thing left to explain the prediction of her losing the money is/was jealousy.

        That money's gone fo ever

          I don't believe that JJ was referring to "winning the lottery" as much as he was to her lifestyle choices and associates current activities. But I could be wrong

              Fun, Nobody on this site cares whether she's black(which you mentioned three times in 7 sentences), white, green,orange or sky blue pink. What we all talked about was her choices in life and what could happen if she wasn't careful. Now she's been arrested because of her lifestyle choice, which has nothing to do with skin color.

                Oh l get that, boy do l get that. My point was & still is the fact that since Miss Holmes was accustomed to a certain lifestyle long before she hit it big. To suddenly abandon friends and move in a different direction is extremely hard for some. They need to wean themselves off their former lifestyle & in many cases associates. When l first read her story, l felt good  knowing that  her one child with special needs will be well taken care of moving forward now that  her newfound wealth could ease her concerns & anxieties. I continue to believe that she can and will do right because anything is possible. We all make mistakes & hopefully she can learn from this experience.

                  For all that what's to know where I saw that she still lives in a trailer,  it was written in Inquisitr , goggle it .      Yes, indeed she is making poor choices and now her children might be taken from her. Let's see where she will be in a year. It's just sad.

                    Problem is that it's way too easy for her to win!

                    Why not buy more tickets instead of drugs, win more jackpots and become a billionaire.

                    Winners don't need to invest, all they need to do is buy more tickets and keep winning.  Are they not smart enough to realize this?

                      Well, she paid her gang member boyfriend's $3 MILLION dollar bond!

                      Google "Marie Holmes Dailymail" and the article comes up.

                      She probably used a bail bondsman and only paid 10%, that's what Linsay Lohan's multiple stints in jail have taught me.

                        I think a lottery winner has to be careful about a lot of things, but from my reading and research (about anonymous claiming), there are four major dangers one would need to guard against:

                        4.  Strangers - people they don't know - out to rob them of their money.  It's rare, but it has happened.

                        3.  Trusting the money to shady investment firms and allowing them or someone else to have total control of the funds.

                        2.  The winner's family. (or even close friends)  This can be a threat that should not be taken lightly because more lottery winners have been murdered by family members than by strangers.  A huge jackpot can be a blessing, but it can also be a curse if it brings about envy and greed in one's family.  I'd also include a form of the previous one on the list in this one as well;  many people cannot say "No!" to their family (or friends), "loaning" them huge sums that will never be paid back or buying them expensive gifts such as cars and houses, or backing them in poorly thought out business schemes. 

                        And the number one danger:  Himself/herself.  (which is relevant to this winner) I've read about people who used some of their new-found fortune to better their life and health and that of their loved ones, but I've also read about far too many who had bad habits only magnify those bad habits with the aid of their instant wealth.  A recreational drug user who only gets high on weekends because that's all they can afford will suddenly discover they can afford to get high every day of the week, or will graduate to something harder.  Someone who drinks too much will decide they're just going to move up from rotgut vodka to that pricey top shelf stuff....and either one will ruin their health just as quickly.

                                                                           We   "NEED"  more, more, much more $tuff

                          When U me or it (my dog pukie) hit's the BIG WON we will only buy more  $tuff >>>>>>>>>>>>>$$$

                          (1) cars, boats and jet a plane or two

                          (2) houses, furniture and more McMansion $tuff

                          (3) gold, silver and all that kinda bling $tuff

                          Everybody gona look at yoou, me or it (don't forgit pukie) and say, there goes "BIG $TUFF", they hit the lottery

                          for $590,000,000, but they will be broke by next week and come trying  to borrow money from me again, I bet!

                          Some gona think why can't I be like them that git's cause I, me or it (pukie loves $tuff) deserves the best too.

                          But, and we all know there is a BUTT out DARE somewhere, Psyko will be changing name to BIG $TUFF (pukie) too.

                            You do realize this was weed, right? This wasn't crack or heroine. I have yet to hear any story where someone got so strung out on weed that they lost their home and was turning tricks to support their habit, so just dial the crazy down a tad.

                            In any case, since your ongoing rants have always been about how easy the jackpots are to win, then she didn't screw you out of anything. It's so easy, how can you not have gotten your cut yet? Things that make you go hmmmm.
