Drug dealers are not all the same. There should be different punishments for
selling different substances. Weed
should be legalized and sold for medicinal or recreational use. There should be mandatory minimum sentences
for selling crack or meth because they are so destructive. Drugs like ecstasy should be legalized, but
carefully regulated to control potency.
I think that only drug lords who murder a lot of people should be jailed
In countries, such as Saudi Arabia, public execution for people involved in illegal drug trade. This itself hasn't actually curtailed illegal drugs in Arabia. Jailing people for life would prevent any hope of rehabilitating dealers. First time offenders of a non-violent crime should never be jailed indefinitely. Allowing criminals to be rehabilitated and returned to the population can let them become role models and may help rehabilitate others and/or prevent others from being jailed.
