Glad you could clear that one up, so it's the death penalty for passing a spliff, makes sense, sounds a lot more like UKIP than Nige's comments.
Ok legalise Weed, but anything harder is scummy.
Heroine, Magic mushroom, Cocaine, LSD etc.

I'd bet this thread will provide far more useful answers than this outdated joke.

It's not a joke. This is a forum, it's for discussion. If you want facts then you should use Google.

Clearly not in the way you have used it because that search was pretty useless.

While the OP might have been looking for facts, these threads tend to generate discussion about the subject.

I hoped it would but unfortunately UKIP seem like they really don't like the topic. Living in a safe Tory seat with UKIP the only possible challenge I could almost be tempted to vote UKIP if their policy matched Farage's comments. I'm not particularly bothered about the EU either way, the war on drugs costs us far more and i'm going to end up with a right wing fruit cake MP no matter what. It could get interesting if we went into the election with the smaller parties united against Labour and the Conservatives on drug policy.

After UKIP head offices very speedy initial response i've not been able to get anything else out of them.

Best i could find is this quote from Farage:

(Original post by Nigel Farage)
UKIP as a party takes the same view as Hitchens, that we haven't really enforced the law properly and that we have to get generally tougher.
So it seems UKIPs drug policy is to take a puritanical moral approach to drugs, preaching that all drug use is evil, pretending the drugs war never existed, that addiction doesn't exist and that we should look to Japan and Singapore with its mandatory death penalty for possession of relatively small amounts of drugs along with mandatory drug testing for how to go about enforcing the law.

Japan doesn't have capital punishment for drug possession.

Singapore has the death penalty for just about everything, because it's an insane fascist state.

If you ask me, Singapore would be what you'd end up with if you created a TSR state.

An absurd dictatorship if insecure STEMM-worshipping idiots.

As far as I know they have released very little policies at all. I would be surprised if they openly wanting drugs legalised or something. There are really no parties you can vote for if you want total legalisation bar maybe some minor libertarian party that doesn't stand anywhere.

Lib Dems probably your best bet for laxer laws?

Sometimes I wonder whether we'd be better off without UKIP, just simply because the population doesn't deserve them, they deserve to have the upcoming financial apocalypse put upon them and have large swaths of the population killed off, that's imo the only way to rid this country of the left/NIMBY's, because even if UKIP get a majority, it's going to have issues rolling back NIMBY laws, whether it's drugs, gun etc.

Not sure where you got that info, Farage is pro-legalization and most of the inner core are libertarians.

Nigel Farage: 'Hitchens and I disagree on this fundamentally. UKIP as a party takes the same view as Hitchens, that we haven't really enforced the law properly and that we have to get generally tougher. My own view is different. I think the war on drugs was lost many years ago. Hitchens will say it was never fought, I know. But we are where we are and drugs are now openly available not just in the streets of London, but in little hamlets and on the North Cornish coast. This isn't even an epidemic it's endemic. The history with prohibition as we saw with alcohol in America is disastrous. I feel a huge amount of crime, they call it petty crime but its not so petty if its your Grandmother is it? Who's been bashed over the head and had her handbag taken and I feel the more we can do to take drugs and the whole drugs industry out of the hands of the racketeers the better.’
