I Thought Asia Was Legalizing Weed, So Why Are They Still Hanging People for Cannabis Possession?

It’s very disappointing to see that while the rest of the region, and world, have long been discussing how to reform their drug laws to keep up with research and modern times, that Singapore has stayed the same. A 46-year-old Singaporean man named Tangaraju Suppiah, was sentenced to death in the Changi Prison for his attempt to traffic some 2 pounds of weed to Singapore back in 2013. Suppiah was accused of working with two others to bring in the marijuana though he never received the drugs he supposedly ordered.
