Mexico Votes to Decriminalize Some Drugs

Now I guess that wall will be used to keep junkies like Rush Limbaugh in the U.S. instead of Mexicans out.

MEXICO CITY – Mexicans would be allowed to possess small amounts of cocaine, heroin, even ecstasy for their personal use under a bill approved by lawmakers that some worry could prove to be a lure to young Americans.

The bill now only needs President
Vicente Fox’s signature to become law and that does not appear to be an obstacle. His office said that decriminalizing drugs will free up police to focus on major dealers.

“This law gives police and prosecutors better legal tools to combat drug crimes that do so much damage to our youth and children,” said Fox’s spokesman, Ruben Aguilar.

  1. Cool! Now, I wonder if all the fascinating experiments in psychedelic psychotherapy that were ended here in the mid 60s will pick up again in Mexico City.

  2. This will be a good chance to see the social changes in a country allowing everyone to use drugs at will. For people that are consumed by it… thinning of the heard.

  3. Why not? If coke were made legal here, would you start using it McGee?

    Why not regulate it rather than spend billions fighting it.

  4. Ahead of the USA in drug program,put the big time pushers in prison instead of the nickle/dime user/seller.Prisons would be for the real killers ect.wouldn’t have to build/maintain as many.Of coarse would mean less income for courts/lawyers and so called lawmenthat are allowed to terrorize the public.
