mexico legalizes possession...
of small amounts of recreational drugs including marijuana, cocaine and heroin. Read about it in this LA Times article. It's a small step, but at least it should open up some jail space for violent criminals.
MEXICO CITY — The Senate approved a bill Friday decriminalizing possession of small quantities of drugs for personal use — including heroin, cocaine, LSD and Ecstasy.Bwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!! Mommy, the big bad Mexicans didn't warn me that they were going to decriminalize possession of all those drugs! What am I gonna do! Boo hoo hoo hoo hoo!
President Vicente Fox's office indicated that he would sign the bill, which has already passed the lower house of Congress. Mexican officials say they hope the measure will allow police to focus on large-scale trafficking operations rather than minor drug busts...
...But the legislation came as a shock to Washington, which counts on Mexico's support in the fight against smugglers who move large quantities of drugs through Mexico to U.S. users.
"I would say any law that decriminalizes dangerous drugs is not very helpful," said Judith Bryan, spokeswoman for the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City.
A delegation from the House of Representatives visited Mexico last week and met with senior officials to discuss drug control issues but was told nothing of the upcoming legislation, said Michelle Gress, a House subcommittee counsel.
Gimme a break, you losers. Shut up and start decriminalizing the stuff in this country, so peaceful citizens can live freely and police can concentrate on real criminals.
