Death penalty and meth

Re: Drug bust at airport 

Cheeeehooooo! Another Meth bust... it’s like while all we have been fed are Marijuana busts for like two blunts or a pipe... the Meth was perhaps flowing freely.

Suddenly those signs when you enter the UAE or Kuala Lumpur airports for eg would resonate perfectly here in Samoa. If you are caught with a certain class of prohibited drug in any quantity... you could face the death penalty.

In fact putting it on our customs/ arrival forms and tourist literature would send a clear message ... especially since direct flights to Tonga have begun. 

Of course I realize we don’t have the death penalty in Samoa anymore... my question to that is: for certain types of crime-perhaps this option should be reconsidered?
