1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.
    PLEASE HELP

    So even though the death penalty is mandatory for these crimes it is done anyway - further proof, if any was needed, that increasing the punishment does not decrease the occurance of the crimes. The eastern part of Malaysia has a strong element who believe in the implementation of Sharia law, so it is unsurprising that the punishments are so strict - even though, in my view, neither the Hadith nor the Qu'ran demand the prohibition or even abstention from drug use.

    Malaysian gangsters can be very tought. Such things as throwing grenades into police stations and shooting with rifles at police happens there. I guess their logic is simple: Kill before the law kills you.

    I don't know the figures, but I think the drug-dependence among Malaysians are more than double than among Europeans.
