Algeria, officially People's Democratic Republic of Algeria, is a country in the Maghreb region of North Africa on the Mediterranean coast. The country is bordered in the northeast by Tunisia, in the east by Libya, in the west by Morocco, in the southwest by Western Sahara, Mauritania, and Mali, in the southeast by Niger, and in the north by the Mediterranean Sea.
Algeria’s drug laws are strict; possession and use of cannabis is punishable by six months’ to two years’ imprisonment, and trafficking and distribution is typically awarded sentences of ten to twenty years’ imprisonment. Algeria still retains the death penalty, but does not apply it to drug-related offences, and has not carried out an execution since 1993.
