The Murder (Abolition of Death Penalty) Act 1965 is an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It abolished the death penalty for murder in Great Britain (the death penalty for murder survived in Northern Ireland until 1973). The act replaced the penalty of death with a mandatory sentence of imprisonment for life. In the U.K. citizens may be charged with possessing an illegal substance if they are caught with drugs, whether they’re yours or not. If someone is under 18, the police are allowed to tell your parent, guardian or carer that you’ve been caught with drugs. Your penalty will depend on the class and quantity of drug.
I strongly believe drug traffickers should receive harsher punishments as I think they are a major problem in todays society and a bad influence on the younger generation. Answering the question I think in certain circumstances a death penalty should be brought but only as a last resort.
What about drug companies which are still allowed to operate and sell drugs, which are responsible for killing plenty of people too, if we are to give drug traffickers the death penalty, then those pharmaceutical companies at fault for killing negligently/knowingly should also face the death penalty in the same way.
