Mexico decriminalizes small-scale drug possession
Mexico decriminalized small amounts of marijuana, cocaine and heroin on Friday—a move that prosecutors say makes sense even in the midst of the government's grueling battle against drug traffickers.
The new law sets out maximum "personal use" amounts for drugs, also including LSD and methamphetamine. People detained with those quantities no longer face criminal prosecution.
We can look forward to this culture continuing to make it's way north. This "makes sense" in the same way it makes sense to encourage your kids to do their chores by not punishing them when they watch tv instead of taking out the garbage.
Say it with me now: build the fence high and wide!
