China is currently the world leader in annual executions, and drug offenders are often the ones being put to death. In accordance with Chinese drug laws, anyone caught trying to smuggle a kilo or more of heroin into the country could face the death penalty. And the same fate could befall anyone found carrying more than 50 grams of other narcotics, including cocaine, opium, and cannabis.
The state also gets to conclude whether or not you’re a drug addict. If you fail the arbitrary, non-medical drug test, you could be in for a bad trip. Addicts are given no less than three years in a prison-like detoxification center. After that, they have to spend a minimum of another three years in a compulsory community rehabilitation center where they’re assessed as to whether or not they can be allowed back on the streets unsupervised.
Despite being criticized for its harsh policy by a number of international watchdog groups, China has remained defiant about its current drug laws and warns travelers that they will subject to severe penalties should they disobey.
