No, it’s dumb. I’m absolutely against executing people for selling drugs.

A guy can be held responsible for an addicted customers death when he sells some drugs/toxins but not others?

Eh. They have declined so far to go into specifics but any way you do it the court battles over this are gonna be ridiculous...

The first guy they attempt to give death for drugs alone better be a totally irredeemable scumbag.
Singapore have mandatory death penalty for anyone caught with even little amount of illegal drugs, including foreigners despite international pressure for extradition. Queen of Netherland herself has begged Singapore not to execute one Dutch citizen but to no avail. The result is...well for the most part Singapore is drug free.

The argument is, with a policy like that, you may kill some small timer or even innocent people. But very likely you've saved thousands of lives and better society.

have an open mind here. really. a drug dealer that sells and provides these hard drugs to addicts on a regular basis. and these addicts will die in early age because of their abuse. their families are greatly effected. I wouldnt mind a death sentence for serious drug dealing offenders. they dont have a conscious on how their making their money by destroying lives and neighborhoods.

how less severe of a crime is it between a dealer than a manufacturer?

death penalty for someone confirming to you that the world is as ugly and as corrupted as you imagined and expected?

so it's probably down to possession for use or actual dealing, and honestly, the users just aren't willing to make the profit of dealing because of the risk associated with it

why are there manufacturer's anyway? because the demand of a humans' physical and psychological makeup, has nothing to do with the skills they possess


here's the piece for abortion

that would actually be morally wrong. the rules for selling drugs are borderline arbitrary, what we agree on in society at that specific moment. 5 years ago selling weed would be illegal now selling weed will be fully legalized here in canada in less than a year. politicians, seasoned cops, pretty much anyone with life experience is investing in the industry

hard drugs are a slightly different story. people will always do what they have to do get their fix. depriving them doesn't solve anything. if anything helping them get what they "need" in a safe controlled environment is better for society. no one likes seeing junkies and needles in the street


all drugs should be legal IMO and society should do everything to demonize the hard drugs. don't enable these junkies.

I certainly do. Laws and regulations do nothing to curb drug use.

Legalize them all.

I'm sure making drugs easier to obtain, cheaper and more accepted would curb the drug use

I promise you that's the only path that makes sense. That's a fact of human nature. If I'm not mistaken drug use even went down in the netherlands...
