Don't go to Dubai

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/7234786.stm

There have been loads of cases lately of people being locked up for even minor drug offences. Fair enough some people may say. The trouble is people are being given 4 yr sentences for microscopic amounts. 0.002gm on your shoe for example - you could pick that up anywhere. people are even being done for having taken things with codeine in or even tanning pills that are openly on sale - even in Dubai. One bloke got 4 yrs for having poppy seeds from a bagel on his sleeve........

When will countries realise that if they treat tourists like this they will stop coming???
