No More Death Penalty For Drug Offenses!

Common Sense for Drug Policy - Link to home page1

Notable QUOTES:
"Of the 64 countries that retain capital punishment, half apply the death penalty to drug-related offenses, the majority of these being in the Middle East, North Africa and Asia Pacific regions."

"In Malaysia, for example between July 04 and July 05, 36 of the 52 executions carried out were for drug trafficking."

"In many of these countries the death penalty may be applied to people convicted for possession of illicit drugs, not only to those convicted for trafficking offenses."
