 1    proffer based upon reliable information offered by the  State
 2    or  defendant.  All  evidence  shall  be  admissible if it is
 3    relevant and reliable  regardless  of  whether  it  would  be
 4    admissible under the rules of evidence applicable at criminal

 6    committed by the defendant was related to or  in  furtherance

29        offense involving possession or delivery of  cannabis  or
30        possession  or  delivery  of  a  controlled  substance as

 2        information  of a law enforcement official contained in a
 3        written report as to the amount seized and  such  proffer
 4        may  be  used by the court as to the current street value
 5        of the smallest unit of the drug seized.
 6        (c)  When a person is charged with an offense  punishable
 7    by  fine  only the amount of the bail shall not exceed double
 8    the amount of the maximum penalty.
 9        (d)  When a person has been convicted of an  offense  and
10    only a fine has been imposed the amount of the bail shall not
11    exceed double the amount of the fine.
12        (e)  The  State  may  appeal  any  order granting bail or
13    setting a given amount for bail.
