Death Penalty

Fujairah, United Arab Emirates
Fujairah criminal court has awarded the death sentence to Lisa Tray, who delivered a package containing about 5 ounces of narcotics to an undercover cop. The woman claimed to be unaware of the contents that had been given to her by her step-father.
While there are a few countries who regularly execute people for selling drugs, that’s not yet true in the U.S. (although Newt Gingrich once proposed the death penalty for smuggling marijuana in certain circumstances).
So far, the U.S. tends to stick with long sentences, such as the 55 years for selling three bags of pot, and now in Virginia, a man has been sentenced to 40 years in prison and $500,000 fine for possession of 14 rocks of crack cocaine.
