On my form load I have the code: Me.RichTextBox2.AllowDrop = True

Then I have the code below but the DragDrop event doesn't fire (even though other regular text boxes accept the drop)

    Private Sub RichTextBox2_DragEnter(sender As Object, e As System.Windows.Forms.DragEventArgs) Handles RichTextBox2.DragEnter
        e.Effect = DragDropEffects.Copy
    End Sub

    Private Sub RichTextBox2_DragDrop(sender As Object, e As System.Windows.Forms.DragEventArgs) Handles RichTextBox2.DragDrop
    <CODE HERE DOES NOT FIRE>
End Sub

It's possible if there's no valid data the dragdropeffects.copy may not take affect.
also try setting allowdrop in the designer to make sure it's taking.
try this in the drag enter event:
   If (e.Data.GetDataPresent(DataFormats.Text)) Then
      e.Effect = DragDropEffects.Copy
   Else
      e.Effect = DragDropEffects.None
   End If
