TEHRAN: Iran threatened on Saturday to allow the transit of illegal drugs through its territory to Europe if the West continues to criticize the country for its practice of executing drug traffickers.
Mohammad Javad Larijani, the head of Iran's High Council for Human Rights, said Iran was sacrificing blood in fighting drug trafficking and suggested it is unfair that it is then condemned by the West for executing smugglers.
"Westerners have to either be Iran's partner in the fight against drug traffickers or we must think otherwise and, for instance, allow the transit" of drugs across Iranian territory, Larijani said in a comment posted on the judiciary's website Saturday.

If you truly believe anything will change in this election, you may have much bigger problems on your hands than this issue. It will be more of the same and continue to spiral down the rabbit hole. Republican or Democrat, sadly, it does not matter.

Man has been using drugs since the beginning of time nothing will stop this not even threat of execution. The governments of the world make billions and billion off drugs every year. I never understood why not tax the hell out of the drugs and make your money that way and leave the people to do what there gonna do no matter what. its like a stupid argument that we can stop drugs from getting to the people that want them we waste so much money putting MJ users in prision we could use that money to education our children and make college affordable for the poor. It all makes me sick!!!
