MEXICAN PRESIDENT WANTS TO LEGALIZE DRUGS

October 15, 2008

Mexican President Felipe Calderon is mulling on legalizing drugs.

Wise and brave decision to make but will he survive it?

He will be up against a very formidable alliance of the most unlikely kind— of drug lords and anti-drug movements themselves— for two contrasting reasons.  Drug lords, because drug trade is more profitable and firmly under their control in an atmosphere of prohibition.  Anti-drug groups, for the old noble reason of shielding society from evil.
