This story is out today from The Associated Press:

MEXICO CITY (AP) -- Mexico's Congress approved a bill Friday that would legalize drug possession for personal use -- decriminalizing the carrying of small amounts of marijuana, cocaine and even heroin.

The only step remaining is the signature of the president, whose office indicates he will sign the measure, despite the implications for the war on drugs.


"The presidency congratulates the Congress for approving the reforms," said presidential spokesman Ruben Aguilar. "This law gives police and prosecutors better legal tools to combat drug crimes that do so much damage to our youth and children."

The bill legalizes possession of small amounts of heroin, cocaine, ecstasy and marijuana.

"No charges will be brought against ... addicts or consumers who are found in possession of any narcotic for personal use," the bill reads.
What! This law may, in fact, help police and prosecutors. If it's no longer be a crime to possess small amounts of heroin, cocaine, ecstasy and marijuana, then police and prosecutors don't have to bother with that part of the drug problem at all. That does, indeed, make it easier for police and prosecutors, but I fail to see how that is going to help the "youth and children."

This is the country from which millions have come illegally into our country. Hundreds of thousands have been marching to protest the U.S. government's getting tough on illegal immigration from this country. Are we to accept that we should continue to allow people from a county where it's legal to possess heroin and cocaine to come into our country without any screening at all? Are we to believe that it would be racist to build a wall to keep people from this country from illegally crossing the boarder into our country?

Simply incredible!
