Bail is too low. We need to get harder on these drugs (heroin, coke, pills, molly) They are destroying our towns and turning these kids into thieves and whores just to get their fix. I hate to say it, but I've never seen an overdose on marijuana, or anyone craving so bad for a joint that they robbed a house. Maybe we should stop wasting time and money on the potheads and start really bashing these hard drug user/dealers. I'd rather my tax money go to that.
