    Mexico ready to give drug addicts a break

    Last Updated Fri, 28 Apr 2006 16:18:10 EDT


    Mexico is set to legalize the possession of small amounts of marijuana, ecstasy, cocaine and heroin.
    The Senate approved a bill setting out the new rules in a 53-26 vote with one abstention. President Vicente Fox still needs to sign the bill into law, but he is expected to do so.
    Proponents of the bill say it's meant to free up resources to battle major drug dealers. Hundreds of people, including police officers, have been killed in a continuing drug war between authorities and competing drug cartels.
    "The presidency congratulates the Congress for approving the reforms," presidential spokesman Ruben Aguilar said. "This law gives police and prosecutors better legal tools to combat drug crimes that do so much damage to our youth and children."
    The will also decriminalize the possession of small quantities of other drugs, including amphetamines, LSD and hallucinogenic mushrooms.
    "No charges will be brought against ... addicts or consumers who are found in possession of any narcotic for personal use," the bill reads. However, those caught with larger amounts of narcotics will be treated as drug dealers and face increased jail terms.

    Wow. I guess all that means for Americans is that you don't need to have that extra $50 in your wallet anymore for "fines" :rolleyes: should something come up. What are all those cops gonna do for extra cash now?

    I know alot of y'all will get upset over this, but I think part of it is a good idea. Now before you fire up the flame thrower, hear me out. Our prison systems here in the US is busting at the seams. There are alot of dope users in there for nothing more then being caught with alittle dope. I'm not saying it can be used for a excuse by the thieven bastards, Fark them, they need too be hung !!!!!! But the guys that gets caught with a small amount of dope, and no other charges, shouldn't be sent to prison in my personal opinion. That would free up alot of bed space in our jails and prisons, you wouldn't have too pay more taxes too build more jails and prisons. Well, that's my personal opinion anyways.

    Personally, I think community service should be pushed a LOT harder. Long hours, and work getting done, on top of it.
