    Hi you know I've been following a lot of the drug stories in Kentville area just due to the fact that it's shocking how a small place could have so many drug dealers..I give credit to the people who protest the use of street drugs and perscription drugs keep up the good work.you guys have to keep hounding the town abut this...but what really gets me is that the people above have been in this perdiciment for a long time and it's time for the law to step up and put these guys away for a long time not a slap on the wrist..That's like one of them in perticular in the story having some of the charges withdrawn it doesn't make since why you ask ? so she can go do it again or look after the drug dealings when everyone else is doing time..look you got to get these people off the streets fast in order to save innocent lives in this area..they are known in the area when it comes to drugs and trouble and it's time for the law to step up ..your not going to get rid of the drug problem here if you keep setting them free or some of them..it just isn't right how many lives does it take to be lost due to drugs before these people do hard time..it's got to come to a end..I will still keep following this story for I am shocked that there is so much drugs of all sorts in such a small area you expect this from a hard core place in the cities not a quite little town like Kentville such a shame.
