Although drug abuse has a long history, Vietnam has recently escalated its fight against drug-related crimes. This paper first discusses the elements of drug-related crimes under the Criminal Code of Vietnam 1999 (as amended in 2009) and calls for a series of reforms. It then analyses sentencing under the Vietnamese criminal law in general, with particular focus on drug-related crimes and the granting of clemency.
