I'm not sure what the point of videos/articles like this is.

This could just as easily have been entitled "Extreme judgement fail results in death" as a Darwin Award entry on the Onion.

Wow, you smuggled hard drugs into a country with some of the harshest policies in the world regarding this issue and got caught. The locals, predictably, didn't take it easy on you. You died. The end.

I view these things more as cautionary tales than anything else.

And yes, the fact that drug dealers/smugglers/manufacturers are some of the least sympathetic people on the planet doesn't help any either.

It's the irony that now in the Philippines the same people would have been shot in the street with no questions asked.

In the game of foreign policy, nation/states know which side their bread is buttered on!
THe Philippines can get away with calling POTUS the son of a whore but it does not work with China

In gen, I agree with the Philippines pres. sentiment. I don't think he called the POTUS that but said he would if questioned about
what actions he was taking as the leader of the Philippines.



United States drug laws are often considered harsh, but the penalties for carrying or trafficking drugs in other countries, particularly those in Central America, South America, and Southeast Asia, can be much more severe. Here are twenty countries in which you do not want to be caught carrying or selling drugs.

Malaysia
In Malaysia, those who sell drugs can be punished with death. Just for having drugs in your possession, you can be fined, jailed, or deported. Driving drunk is also punished harshly in Malaysia.

China
In China, if you are caught with drugs, you could be forced to attend drug rehab in a facility run by the government. Execution is the penalty for some drug crimes.

Vietnam
In Vietnam, drug crimes are taken very seriously. If you are arrested with more than 1.3 pounds of heroin, you will automatically be executed.

Iran
Iran is not known to be tolerant of criminal offenses in general, and drug offenses are no different. The use of opium is a particular problem in Iran, in part because it is produced in neighboring Afghanistan. If you are caught with drugs in Iran, the best case scenario is a large fine and the worst-case scenario is the death penalty.

Thailand
In Thailand, those trafficking narcotics may be put to death. Drug users are frequently sentenced to mandatory rehab.

Dubai
Dubai is known to be very intolerant of drug abuse. Many prescription drugs that are legal in other parts of the world can get you put in jail in Dubai. It is typical for drug offenders to be sentenced to four years in prison and then be deported. Failing a drug test can be grounds for incarceration Dubai, even if you are not in possession of any drugs.

Saudi Arabia
The sale of drugs in Saudi Arabia almost always results in the death penalty. Saudi Arabia and judicial authorities are not inclined to make exceptions. Alcohol use is illegal in Saudi Arabia, and possession or use of alcohol or drugs can be punished by public flogging, fines, lengthy imprisonment, or death.

Singapore
Singaporean police will assume that you are selling drugs if you are caught with relatively small amounts. If you are convicted of selling drugs, you will be sentenced to death.

Cambodia
In Cambodia, you can be sentenced to many years in prison or even life in prison for possessing drugs. Unlike many other South Asian countries, Cambodia does not mandate the death penalty for drug trafficking.

Indonesia
Indonesian drug laws are harsh. If you are caught with marijuana, you can get up to twenty years in jail. Other drugs carry jail terms of up to twelve years, and the sale of drugs is punishable by death.

Laos
If you’re caught with drugs in Laos, you could pay up to $35,000. If you are found with narcotics, you could spend ten years or more in prison.

North Korea
Foreigners rarely visit North Korea, but there are several tour groups that can help you visit the reclusive nation. Do not bring drugs into North Korea, because you could find yourself sentenced to an extremely lengthy stay in a prison camp. You will have no contact with your friends or family, and it may be very difficult for the United States government to intervene.


The Philippines
In the Philippines, drug traffickers are sentenced to death. You may be presumed to be a drug trafficker if you have more than a third of an ounce of a drug in your possession.

Turkey
Penalties for drug possession in Turkey include large fines and long prison sentences. Penalties for selling drugs can be even stricter.

Costa Rica
As in other South American countries, possession of drugs in Costa Rica can land you in jail for a lengthy stay.

Columbia
If you get caught with drugs in Columbia, you will spend a long time in a very unpleasant prison. Police make several arrests a day at airports in Columbia, catching many foreign nationals.

Saudi Arabia on Wednesday beheaded a Syrian national convicted for drug smuggling, bringing to 75 the number of executions in the kingdom this year.

Ridwan Awad Mohammed Awad was caught trying to smuggle "a large amount" of amphetamine into the kingdom, according to the interior ministry.

His execution focuses attention not only to Saudi Arabia's judicial system and public beheadings but also to the prevalence of drug use in the hyper-conservative society.


Last year a committee of members of the ministries of interior, justice and health proposed the end to beheading in state-sanctioned executions. A "shortage in official swordsmen" and their "belated arrival to execution yards" were two of the reasons given for the change.

wow a "shortage of head choppers" and they'er late getting to work....maybe things will change...

Personally, I favor public hangings for state run execution.

It generally isn't messy, in no way elevates the status of the criminal being executed (i.e. no one ever looks cool by dying from a hanging unlike a firing squad) and is impervious to "do-gooder" lawsuits. Unlike electrocution and lethal injection, no one ever survives the process if the neck break happens as designed.

Yeah, they should assassinate the prescription drug users first.

1st _ using/growing/etc., plants or their concentrates should be legal .

Most of the country's with "killing for drugs trafficking " law - simply protect domestic market, for the locals mobs.
and
in addition - why somebody has the rights to tell me what I can eat , drink or smoke? WTF?
Its against basic,

Because some things that you eat, drink or smoke have negative social consequences, according to those who make the rules, and some of those are pretty obviously harmful, while there does seem to be a theme against getting high your own way in our society.

Mike, I would totally accept that argument ... except for three things: alcohol, tobacco and firearms. They'll kill more in any day than some illegal drugs will in a year, or a decade. But, they're all protected by God and freedom, and they turn a nice profit. So, the only drugs that will be legalized or decriminalized will be those that are profitable to the people whose products they would compete with. There are also profits to be made in the incarceration of drug users, which is probably unique to the US.

In the past, the US gov't poisoned drugs in order to prevent them being sold or used; but, it didn't work. The people who grew them didn't care. Recently, while some have marveled at the number of people shot in Chicago, more people overdosed in New Hampshire. It's been in the news. Anyway, flooding the market with super-potent product is a much easier way to get rid of users. It has been done.

The alternative to legalization or incarceration could be hospitalization, but that costs money and sympathy. That won't happen, imo.

I've never heard of this before. Can you elaborate on how that works? Why would that get rid of users as I thought users are always looking for potent products?

Really? Starting in the 70s, there was spraying of marijuana plants. Afa today, there's a strain of heroin on the street labelled "Batman" that is laced with fentonyl and/or elephant tranquilizer. That's today. It's an easy Google search. There are also books on how the CIA introduced crack into particular neighborhoods http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/10/1 ... 61748.html.

Steve, yes. Some things are potentially too dangerous to be totally uncontrolled, but we have some inconsistent logic on what they are.

World’s 10 Most Deadly Street Drugs that Will Quickly Tear Your Body Apart
http://anonhq.com/worlds-10-deadly-street-drugs-will-quickly-tear-body-apart/

In 2010, prescription opiates accounted for 60% of overdose deaths in the United States — a country which spends over $51 billion a year to fight the drug war. Fentanyl, a synthetic opioid 50 to 100 times more powerful than morphine, is now considered America’s new deadliest drug. That’s just a few statistics about the USA; every year, chemical drugs kill scores of people worldwide.
