No, and only if it was a violent crime should they be life in prison.

No, and the death pendalty should be abolished because the legal system can be wrong.

@9JCVJ9GDemocrat from Oregon answered…3mos

Yes only if they are repeated offenders and there is proof someone died form the drugs they trafficked.

As long as there is a fair trial, I have no problem with the death penalty. But, I do think that the number of drugs involved and how far the connections reach should be highly considered.

@9HY2B36Green from New York answered…3mos

A lot of drug traffickers are being blackmailed or manipulated. Focus on the source of the drugs instead.

@9HSD5HWPeace and Freedom from Ohio answered…3mos

Possibly, in the case of multiple offenses, after a fair trial, multiple death occurances in relation to the crime, extensive efforts for rehabilitation, and extwnsive psychiatric evaluations.

@9HS9ZN4Peace and Freedom from California answered…3mos

Decriminalize and regulate drug production and use. Take the money out of the black market and put it in the economy and social programs.

@9HJWKS2Justice party member from Minnesota answered…3mos

I do not support the death penalty except for rare occasions. The traffickers should stay in prison though.

@9HHY7RMLibertarian from California answered…3mos

No, the marketing, sale, and use of drugs is a free market affair and should be decriminalized immediately.

@AJONES9Constitution from Texas answered…3mos

Yes, they should but only if what they are trafficking is killing others and they have repeated the offense multiple times.

@9HC5N9KWorking Family from Kentucky answered…3mos

Yes, but ONLY if they're repeated offenders of trafficking or if someone died from the drugs they trafficked. Human traffickers SHOULD get the Death Penalty because human trafficking is WORSE than drug trafficking.

@Joan-ThompsonVeteran from Texas answered…3mos

No, unless he/she has also committed violent crimes such as attempted murder, or first degree murder, or in any other way seriously injures someone as a result of doing

@9H6P9KPSocialist from Ohio answered…3mos

No, they should be required to attend therapy sessions as well as community service, education, and skill building. For repeat offenders, a graduated program of time spent in jail, ending with life in prison.

I feel that I do not know enough about this topic to contribute an answer.

@ray522Democrat from New York answered…3mos

Undecided on this topic, it is very controversial. I agree with elements on both sides.

@9GXV2CXWomen’s Equality from Colorado answered…3mos

There should be a trial to see if it is an option, the death penalty should not be the first option but it should still be an option

@9GXQ97NPeace and Freedom from Hawaii answered…3mos

It would depend on their offenses — if they committed murder, etc. Still, I don't believe in the death penalty. Life in prison without parole, I believe, is just as bad as death.

@9GXL9RDDemocrat from Connecticut answered…3mos

@9GVY5GTTranshumanist from Colorado answered…3mos

No, I do not support the death penalty. Have a fair trail and if convicted have life in prison without parole.

@9GVJYLXWomen’s Equality from North Carolina answered…3mos

@9GVCN7TDemocrat from New Mexico answered…3mos

Not the death penalty but unless someone died it would be a different situation

@9GS7YNPWomen’s Equality from New Jersey answered…3mos

no, only if they have been convicted of other major crimes such as direct murder

@9GRXZNXGreen from Texas answered…3mos

@9GQYRKXSocialist from Indiana answered…3mos

No one should be subjected to the death penalty no matter how big the crime

@9GQ8J5JSocialist from New York answered…3mos

@9GKJXC9Libertarian from Florida answered…3mos

The war on drugs should be ended, which would eliminate the idea of drug trafficking. Anyone who commits murder, however, should be given the death penalty.

@9GNP3XTPeace and Freedom from Minnesota answered…3mos

This should be re-worded as "Should people get the death penalty if their only crime was selling/dealing drugs?". The answer to that question is NO. Cartel/gang leaders usually commit or direct lots of other violent crimes that would make them eligible for the death penalty. Local dealers might not be committing any crimes besides distributing/selling the drugs; they should NOT be eligible for the death penalty.

@9GJ4LTRLibertarian from Indiana answered…3mos

@9GK9PSDTranshumanist from Arizona answered…3mos

Yes, if convicted of other crimes such as rape, murder, etc.

@9GHRS63Veteran from Nebraska answered…3mos

Yes but only if the umber of years to appeal is limited, otherwise the death penalty is merely a life sentence.

@9GHDRD5Veteran from Illinois answered…3mos

yes, but only if they are repeat offenders AND the definition of "drug trafficking" needs to be rewritten so that it only applies to large amounts specific to high level trafficking.

@9G6LY63Working Family from California answered…3mos

@9G3YQYQWomen’s Equality from California answered…3mos

No. Drugs should be decriminalized thus eliminating the need for drug traffickers.

@9G3PCZTPeace and Freedom from Idaho answered…3mos

All drugs should be decriminalized, regulated and distributed through rehabilitation centers that help addicts get clean. Treating a disease, which is often caused by poverty, as something to be met with punishment and exploitation is counterproductive.
