I'm against the death penalty in all cases. Even if there were a crime where I thought the death penalty was fitting (and there isn't), there's no justice system that I'd trust to administer it.

But the death penalty for drug smuggling isn't just wrong morally, and it's very wrong morally, it's also completely useless as a deterrant. The people who make the profit from drugs are just another set of capitalists, they don't care what happens to their transport, they don't care if they face life imprisonment or are executed.
