    The headline made it seem like some "Queenpin" had been arrested. This lady had less than 2lbs of weed and she has a list of trumped up charges and a $145,000 bond. The guy who was caught last week after trying to rob someone and had a rifle and 3 knives, while wearing a bullet-proof vest had a bond of $35,000. Our criminal justice system is a joke. $145,000 for weed?!?! Silly.
