Give me your drugs and your life

It's that time again. As in years past, in the weeks prior to the UN's International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking, China has sentenced dozens of dealers to death and one man was executed in Shanghai for smuggling in 1.8kg of heroin and other executions took place across the country.
Amnesty International made an expected appeal to Chinese government asking it to abandon the long standing practice of executing the smugglers since there is no statistical evidence it has any greater effect on drug trafficking than other methods of punishment. One expects their pleas for humane treatment will once again fall on deaf ears.
