FUNNY HOW QUIET THE NORMALLY HYSTERICAL U.S. drug warriors are being about this sudden burst of sanity on the part of Mexico. Whassup with that? When Canada made itty-bitty noises about lightening up on pot, the fedgov acted as if it intended to invade and crush the Evil Iceborne Resistance and all of its Drug-Crazed Rebels. Now Mexico plans to say that even heroin possession (in small amounts) is nobody's business. And not a word out of Washington. Strange, strange, strange.
But good on you, Mexico. How 'bout that? A government in this day and age recognizing that individuals can still have private business and maybe even a tad bit of self-ownership.
Keep this up and the "flood of illegals" will some day be headed in the other direction.
