POT is harmless HEROIN kills people and passes disease. i care that scum like him are selling heroin to people. he is helping others ruin their lives. helping spread diseases. and do u know where heroin originates from? heroin passes thru the hands of the alkida. each time someone buys heroin they are funding terrorism! him selling it is funding terrorism which has been destroying our nation. destroying peoples lives destroying families. does pot do that? no. u smoking pot has nothin to do with this.

This is true that Janes was arraigned in Herkimer Village Court and sent to Herkimer County jail in lieu of $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 bond, police said? http://www.nonfaithbased-drugrehab.org/our-st...

his bail was more like $50K not $5k. If the troll who copied and pasted the original story bothered to actually link to it instead of plagiarizing, you'd know that. But again, that scumbag posting with the Syracuse IP is a piece of shit.

Not for Ben Janes. His bail was set at $25K cash or $50K bond.

The arrest of another guy a few days later was less, around $5k.

sorry i got it backwards. Janes was the second arrest and had the lower bail. It was the first guy who was arrested a couple weeks earlier with the very high bail. He got busted with a lot more dope.

http://www.wktv.com/news/local/Herkimer-man-f...

Micah J. Battalio, 22, of the residence has now been charged with third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, and second-degree criminally using drug paraphernalia.

Battalio was arraigned and committed to Herkimer County Correctional Facility in lieu of $25,000 cash bail or $50,000 bond.

The Herkimer Police were assisted by the Herkimer County District Attorney's Office in the investigation and say additional arrests are pending.

I suspect Janes' arrest was a result of that first arrest. The dominoes start to fall.

I don't care if he is black,white or any other color. He is selling heroin and that is dangerous, yes, it does support terrorism, and yes, it does ruin families. If the police start cleaning up the supply, then hopefully the demand will lessen. Then with any drug money confiscated, we build non traditional rehab centers in every city and instead of jail time, the user gets a chance in a 90 day rehab to stay out of jail and get clean. http://www.biophysical-drugrehabs.org/non12st...

if you totaled up the losses to the economy from heroin versus pot smoking your figures would prove to be VERY INACCURATE, Pot is the social media that alcohol was 30 years ago. MORE scwewed up POT HEAD people than heroin users doesnt sound like progress to me.heroin might kill you quicker but the death from POT is LONGER lasting, potheads think its a clean high, look at willie nelson..thats your future at best, (dont forget the part of your body that will lose its libido at about the age of 45..)bill clinton anyone..HOGGER TIME
