"APAIC reviewed drug use in Indonesia and found the following; between 2006 and 2010 the use of meth, barbiturates, heroin, and cannabis resin increased, while the use of ecstasy and cocaine remained about the same. APAIC also found that domestic production of meth and ecstasy is on the rise. Evidently the death penalty and decades long prison sentences are not deterring drug users or drug dealers." - http://reason.com/blog/2012/05/30/you-can-sometimes-reduce-drug-use-if-you

Well, I bet the folks being executed don't deal or abuse drugs anymore. Don't get me wrong, I'm libertarian on drug use. No. I do not. Smoke dope. I don't want anyone in my family to, either. But if, God forbide, they do, I don't want them going to prison for it.
