It's true, look on google for death penalty and drugs and you get a site called www.deathpenaltyinfo.org
looks pretty legit.
Non-homicide crimes which may result in a federal death sentence:
Espionage (18 U.S.C. 794)
Treason. (18 U.S.C. 2381)
Trafficking in large quantities of drugs (18 U.S.C. 3591(b))
Attempting, authorizing or advising the killing of any officer, juror,or witness in cases involving a Continuing Criminal Enterprise, regardless of whether such killing actually occurs. (18 U.S.C. 3591(b)(2))
FUCKED UP!!! The death penalty's wrong anyway but that is beyond a joke.
All you kids who slated this guy, perhaps you should spend 2 minutes checking first.
