When considering whether to impose the death penalty in a drugs case, the court should consider whether a sentence of life imprisonment would also have a deterrent effect.

Muhammad Janas v. State (2010 SCMR 1016)

The mere discovery of narcotics near to the accused is not sufficient to uphold a conviction under the CNSA for drug trafficking.
