Gingrich: Executions for Drug Possession

It's an All Gingrich Tuesdee here. Here's Newt endorsing the Singapore drug policy which executes people for possession:

If you’re serious about the latter view, then we need to think through a strategy that makes it radically less likely that we’re going to have drugs in this country. Places like Singapore have been the most successful at doing that. They’ve been very draconian. And they have communicated with great intention that they intend to stop drugs from coming into their country.

So what would happen to someone who was illegally acquiring and ingesting massive doses of, say, Oxycontin? You know, buying it on the street and sucking it down like Coca Cola. Would that hypothetical person -- we'll call him Flush Flimbaugh -- be sentenced to a state execution? Or perhaps because it's a prescription drug, would the sentence be reduced to life in prison? Seriously, we deserve to know what would happen to Flush Flimbaugh under a President Gingrich administration!
