Thinking about smuggling $2.5 million worth of cocaine into Bali? Don't do it.

When British citizen Lindsay June Sandiford traveled to the resort island of Bali for vacation in May, she took with her a suitcase full of party favors - $2.5 million in cocaine to be exact. It turns out that it will be a decision she will regret for the rest of her life which today was determined by an Indonesian court to be ended by firing squad. Not good. The judge sentenced the 56-year-old Briton to death for smuggling drugs into the country against the pleas from the lady that she was forced to carry the drugs by a local gang or they would kill her family. 114 prisoners currently sit on death row in Indonesia because of drug related crimes. While we don't agree with the drastic and over-the-top sentencing, we have learned one thing from this story: where we won't be traveling for spring break.
