The death penalty in Singapore is for trafficking drugs over a certain limit (I forgot what it is) and yes it includes weed.
Singapore is a good place to live if you're well-to-do or rich. Don't expect to have your human rights protected though. I have a love/hate relationship with my country.
Yeah I heard about the ban on tourists smoking in the cafes...looks like I need to look up Javi and/or GSMnadal when I go to the Netherlands.
