You'll only be executed for possession of over 500 grams (just over a pound), which they deem "trafficking". Possession of any amount results in "only" a $20,000 fine and/or 10 years in jail.They will execute you for possessing marijuana. Singapore also has anti-gay laws.
I do appreciate that strong anti-drug laws may be controversial to those accustomed to a lifestyle of liberal drug-taking. However, the law and its strict enforcement has served its purpose and deterrent effect. I believe this is the message that Singapore wants to send, and does not shy away from doing so. One can either choose to accept it, or stay away.They will execute you for possessing marijuana. Singapore also has anti-gay laws.
