    Hmmm, I will never understand the Arabs, when it comes to these sort of things. Dealing coke and Hashish perhaps is bad, in some societies but 'the path of evil', to the extent he deserves to die.

    However he wasnt messing around:

    This is nothing. People get the DP in Malayasia for possession of weed (possession of over half a pound of weed is automatically considered trafficking, unless the defendant can prove otherwise :bugeye:...and the punishment for trafficking is execution).

    But punishment aside, it's good to see that royalty gets the same deal as the rest of the people. Silver lining!
