Deterrence

TalkLeft has a post on handling drug dealers in Vietnam.
Our lawmakers seem to think if they just pass some harsher laws, they’ll be able to deter drug dealers. And yet, in Vietnam, despite 18 executions already this year, it didn’t deter this 48-year-old woman from transporting 3/4 of a pound of heroin, even though she knew she’d be tied to a stake and shot by a firing squad.
You want to deter criminal drug dealers? Eliminate their profits by ending the drug war.
