Mexico's Fox to Sign Bill Legalizing Drugs :arrow:

Mexican President Vicente Fox will sign into law a measure that decriminalizes the possession of small amounts of marijuana, cocaine, heroin and other drugs for personal use, his spokesman said Tuesday.

Spokesman Ruben Aguilar defended the law, which was approved Friday by Mexico's Senate, despite criticism in the United States that it could increase casual drug use.

"The president is going to sign this law," said Aguilar, who called the legislation "a better tool ... that allows better action and better coordination in the fight against drug dealing."

"The government believes that this law represents progress, because it established the minimum quantities that a citizen can carry for personal use," Aguilar said.

Lao Tzu: Tao Te Ching
(Translated by Brian Browne Walker..1996)

Tao is beyond words
and beyond understanding.
Words may be used to speak of it,
but they cannot contain it.

Tao existed before words and names,
before heaven and earth,
before the ten thousand things.
It is the unlimited father and mother
of all limited things.

Therefore, to see beyond boundaries
to the subtle heart of things,
dispense with names,
with concepts,
with expectations and ambitions and differences.

Tao and its many manifestations
arise from the same source:
subtle wonder within mysterious darkness.

This is the beginning of all understanding.

However, the bill stiffens penalties for trafficking and possession of drugs — even small quantities — by government employees or near schools, and it maintains criminal penalties for drug sales.

It also gives local police more power to go after small-scale dealing.


Seems that is not the goal, the tourism will prosper when the party isnt interupted by a beaner cop wanting a bribe.

Seems that all types are heading tword the party!!

Before they were caught at the border, the men were arrested in Mexico carrying Greek passports. They were held almost a month for entering Mexico illegally. But we’re told the Mexican government released them and told them to “go north”.

We’re told they are still in the Valley and are being questioned about why and how they got here.

Since October, 11 Iraqis have been caught entering the U.S. illegally.
