British Man Gets Dealth Penalty in UAE Marijuana Case

10

Note to all readers: Do not bring marijuana to the United Arab Emirates…

The British Embassy has confirmed that a British man has been dealt the death penalty after he and an associate were found guilty on marijuana-related charges. A spokeswoman from the British Embassy stated, “We can confirm that a British national is facing the death penalty in the United Arab Emirates.” She continued to say, “We will remain in close contact with him and continue to provide the appropriate consular assistance.”

Due to embassy policy, all details will be in the realm of anonymity – no details or comments were made in regards to this case. The unnamed Briton and his Syrian colleague were not fortunate with the results of the verdict unearthed to them by the courts – the two men were found guilty. They were found trying to sell about ¾ of an ounce (yes…20 grams) of marijuana to a cop who was undercover.

There has also been reports that that the 2 stoner buddies were found guilty by a criminal court in Abu Dhabi and the Brit was 21, the Syrian only 19 years of age – just 1 year of eligibility of having a medical marijuana card.

The country is saturated with skyscrapers soaring up to the heavens, shopping malls comparable to ones you may find atop Mount Zeus, and glitz for all to have and spare – Albeit their legal system is solidified in archaic values that criminalize drug use and indecent behavior.

Initial verdicts from the courts are normally up to appeal in the Emirates. It isn’t unusual for the emirate rulers to excuse guilty criminals and also to lighten sentences.

Executions are a rare breed in the United Arab Emirates, but they do happen. In early 2011, a man that was found guilty of violently raping and murdering an innocent 4 year-old boy was executed by a firing squad inside Dubai city limits. To find marijuana involved in a death-penalty case perplexing ones logic. In the courts eyes, to equally compare someone selling less than an ounce of marijuana versus a deviant pedophile sounds about right? Sounds about wrong…

In the prison system, case-study someone with a marijuana related case to someone with a case of pedophilia/murder – You think they will both be treated equally among their peers?

    Yes – it is a tragic verdict. But those 50,000+ deaths and executions in Mexico are also a tragic verdict handed down by the governments of Mexico and the United States. All such are unjust and inhumane. The day will come…

    What do you expect from people who are stuck in the 14th century? With the exception of Israel, they are all totally fucked in the head. I don’t feel too bad about bombing the fuck out of them now. Its really all they understand anyways.

    This is insanity to the max!

    And I thought my 5 years in US Federal Prison for a pot offense was off the charts. Especially after watching armed bank robbers come and go in as little as 20 months.

    When I went to the parole board after more than 3 years ‘behind the wall,’ I pointed this out to the panel members. Their response: “You must understand that yours was a very serious offense.”

    I laughed about that for another 2 years (as I still sat in prison)…then wrote my book:
    Shoulda Robbed a Bank.

    No, it is not a treatise on varying sentences, but a humorous look at what the ‘marijuana culture’ is really about.
    People pursuing happiness in their own way. Harming no one…nor their property.

    That’s my contribution to helping point out just how ludicrous our pot laws truly are.

    I hope you check it out…at least read the reviews, the first chapter, and ‘Table of Contents’…a story in itself.
    It’s available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Smashwords.

    And I pray that the young Briton is released…NOW!
