Location of Brunei

Brunei, officially the Nation of Brunei, is a sovereign state located on the north coast of the island of Borneo in Southeast Asia. Apart from its coastline with the South China Sea, it is completely surrounded by the state of Sarawak, Malaysia; and it is separated into two parts by the Sarawak district of Limbang. It is the only sovereign state completely on the island of Borneo; the remainder of the island's territory is divided between the nations of Malaysia and Indonesia.

Legislation

A fiercely Islamic state, Brunei has some of the harshest sentences in the world for cannabis violations, and does not tolerate weed in any form. In fact, anyone caught with more than 600 grams of the plant would probably face the death penalty. [1]

In October 2004 the Brunei High Court sentenced Malaysian Lam Ming Hwa to death by hanging for possessing a slab of cannabis weighing just under a kilogram.[2]
