Mexico ready to give drug addicts a break


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."

They 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.

will they continue to throw people in jail for no reason whatsoever and leave them there for months without charges while giving them little more than rice and water?
