    Dr. Fleming, Great talk. Given what you’ve said here on the evident need in a death penalty I wonder how to apply that to the so called War on Drugs or drug problem. So many of our crimes seem drug related. It makes me wonder if drug dealers (hard drugs, heroin, cocaine) at some point deserve the death penalty. These drugged ppl often murder and rape.
