It's not that uncommon, there are many nations that have a policy of executing people for drug possession. In Singapore the penalty for simple drug possession is death by hanging. Most of these nations are in Asia or the Middle East (not surprisingly. Several former British colonies in the Caribbean also have the death penalty for drugs although it's very rare for someone to actually be executed since the British Judicial Committee of Privy Council remains the highest court of appeals and they normally refuse to allow them to execute people.

If you can show me the first person in the history of the world to OD on weed or start a war over weed I will agree 100% with you. Weed isnt the problem ever and if a government kills people over it then I guess that is a problem, to me anyway.

Get over it guy. Its weed. Tell me why it is so bad for someone. They dont smoke it all day at work but they do enjoy it regularly. They are blue collar and white collar and they are fine. Alcohol is much worse for people but because it is legal you think that it is better for you?

Did you hear about the sequel?? It's a little more serious, maybe too serious.

Tell them you JUST purchased this bag of marijuana from a major drug dealer in your neighborhood and would like to report it as a crime. They will drive right back to the scene and throw him in jail. Showing them the drugs is irrefutable evidence of a crime!
This is the biggest load of non-sense I've ever heard. I don't believe for a minute you ever did such a thing.

" Showing them the drugs is irrefutable evidence of a crime. "

That only works on tv shows my friend.
