Evidently the death penalty and decades long prison sentences are not deterring drug users or drug dealers.

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.

What percentage of them are being caught? What percentage of them can we hope to catch in a free society?

Good to hear!
