Since 1999, the executions of drug smugglers have become more common in Indonesia, Iran, China and Pakistan. In March 2018, U.S. President Donald Trump proposed executing drug traffickers to fight his country’s opioid epidemic. 32 countries impose the death penalty for drug smuggling. Seven of these countries (China, Indonesia, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Vietnam, Malaysia and Singapore) routinely execute drug offenders. Asia and the Middle East’s tough approach contrasts with many Western countries who have legalized cannabis in recent years (selling cannabis in Saudi Arabia is punished by beheading).
if it is a high end drug or a major life threatening drug like heroin, methamphetamines, cocaine, or party pills yes most definitely, but drugs like marijuana or other drugs that are permitted legal in other countries shouldn't be treated as a life threatening drug
It depends on how bad of an effect the drugs have on people, however, I don't think it's worth the death penalty. For example, if it's marijuana then a minor sentence is required, but if it's methamphetamine then a harsher sentence should be put in place.
i believe if the drug trafficker's did it on purpose then they should be in jail for life because by giving drugs to addicted people can led to many deaths and over doses. but if a person trafficked the drugs without knowing or was being blackmailed the deserve a fair trial and a bit to none jail time.
No. Death penalty should not be implemented for any crime as statistics show that states with death penalty generally have higher homicide rates. This is because the theory is that government is instilling this idea that it is okay to take the life of someone who has done something wrong by you. Therefor the death penalty becomes a learned behaviour in the general public.
