Yes, but only if there is proof someone died from the drugs they trafficked

@97P78DMfrom British Columbia  answered…3wks

Individuals who traffic drugs are drug addicts themselves. They need rehabilitation not incarceration among other criminals. Jails and prisons create better criminals.

@96JJRBTfrom Ontario  answered…2mos

No, and we should nationalize the drug industry to reduce deaths and help them by discouraging the use.

@96BHBSGfrom Manitoba  answered…2mos

The death penalty is a completely unnecessary and unjust form of “justice”. Why is it legal for a government body to commit murder onto a person who has committed a crime against that government? This scenario is no different than gang violence reacting to one of their members being killed by a rival gang member.

@95YJRW3New Democraticfrom British Columbia  answered…2mos

Maybe. It really depends on how long they were trafficking drugs, why they were trafficking drugs, and if they were forced.

@955C627from Ontario  answered…3mos

No, and we instead focus on the issue of why people demand drugs in the first place.

@94VP9NSfrom British Columbia  answered…3mos

Yes, if a perpetrator has a criminal background (I don't mean speeding tickets) or has a history of trafficking hard drugs. If one is caught selling to minors, yes.

@9464L2Wfrom New Brunswick  answered…4mos

No but, punish them by sending them to prison and giving them 60 years

@945RR7Pfrom British Columbia  answered…4mos

Yes, in public execution and their families shall pay for the cost.

@93ZCWBCfrom Ontario  answered…4mos

@93KW88V from California answered…5mos

No, and the free import and export of all drugs should be decriminalized.

@fjamalConservativefrom Ontario  answered…6mos

Yes, but only if they are repeated offenders and were given a fair trial.

@92YHQCV from California answered…6mos

No. However the sentence should depend on why the person was trafficking drugs in the first place.

@933LMPXfrom Alberta  answered…7mos

Stiffer sentences potentially, with bracelet and probation aftercare.
Victim impact education possibly. Relocation programs perhaps, think victim protection almost and education and rehabilitation programs, funding.

Education, therapy, treatment should be the main; rehabilitate, dont exacerbate. These are human beings not animals. Treat them as such.

Focus should be on rehabilitation and investment.

@9334YP3 answered…7mos

Yes, if they have been sentenced to death or life in prison, and cannot or will not appeal.

@92X5HLD from California answered…7mos

No, the death penalty should be abolished and drug trafficking should be legalized

@92WX6NZ from Illinois answered…7mos

As long as they were given a fair trial, then yes, but only if there's proof someone died from the drugs they trafficked

 @MSelvig from Wyoming answered…8mos

@6LV5ZML from Washington answered…8mos

Yes, as long as they are given a fair trial; and, pharmaceutical companies, and all civil and governmental agencies involved in illegal and legal drugs are also categorically defined as "drug traffickers" and "drug dealers".

@8ZZ2TB6from Ontario  answered…8mos

@8M258QP from Indiana answered…8mos

Yes- only of their drugs are confirmed to be laced with harmful drugs not disclosed in the purchase to buyers

 @8ZH59GG from Washington answered…8mos

No, the bible says that the death penalty is only okay for murder.

@8ZR6F7Tfrom Ontario  answered…9mos

No, not the death penalty. If a drug dealer knowingly taints the supply with fentanyl etc, and anyone dies, charge them with murder one.

@8ZN4YG4from British Columbia  answered…9mos

No, I don't trust the government to decide use of capital punishment. There's simply too many things that could go wrong, especially considering that many death row inmates are actually innocent/potentially falsely convicted. Life in prison instead, and let's decriminalize drugs/even potentially legalize them like Portugal so that nobody dies from tainted drugs in the first place.

@8ZLZHD9 from Pennsylvania answered…9mos

Yes, but only if there is proof someone died from the drugs they trafficked and they lied about the content of the sold drugs.

@8ZJFSF6 from California answered…9mos

@8Y6XX9F from Massachusetts answered…9mos

Yes, but only if they willingly understood their drugs could cause death.

@8Z3NQVS from Michigan answered…10mos

Yes, If it is a major trafficking issue: very large amounts or involves the most dangerous. Meth, heroin, Opioids...
