Hey Kids, Now It's Mexico for All Your Coke and Heroin Needs

PARTY TIME SOUTH OF THE BORDER. In yet another in a long line of DNA-deficient decisions, Mexico has decided to make itself even more attractive to junkies. Mexican Drug Bill Worries Police

"CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico - Police and business owners from Mexico's beaches to border cities say they are worried a measure passed by Mexico's Congress that decriminalizes possession of cocaine, heroin and other drugs could attract droves of tourists solely looking to get high. Mexican and U.S. government officials insist that the bill eliminates legal hurdles to prosecuting drug crimes large and small. But it also lays out specific amounts of drugs including marijuana, cocaine, heroin and Ecstasy that can be legally possessed for personal use."

What a country!

Hmmmmmm. Does that mean the "caught the rich Yankee tourista with drugs" scam will now require the fuss of repacking/weighing the drop-in bags?

Does new law come with larger penalties for holding a quantity above the allowed amounts?

Which would mean the Federali scammers can up bribe $$$$ to forget about it.
Inflation hits all of us.

Drugged up touristas are also easier to kidnap. So those given the "date rape" drug will be just part of the "new normal" scene.

Looks as if the drug lords wrote this law, lots of benefits for the criminal gangs/corrupt pols all around.

This is definitely a cloud with a silver lining. WHEN the Feds decide to grow back some cojones*, this situation comes very close to providing justification for introducing EVERYONE crossing north to Buddy, the Dope-Sniffing Dog. We don't even need to arrest them, just DON'T LET THEM CROSS. Not only would that keep many undesirable Mexicans out, but it would let us dispose of a lot of our own doper trash.

A few notes:

Drug laws in Mexico are virtual seatbelt laws here. Yeah sure they're taken seriously sometimes, but even when it comes to tourism it's pretty hard to get caught if you're in an area that's got some 'connections' to begin with. Conversely, I would hate to be caught in one of those non-connected areas with a stash. Not that I'm all junky or anything, just saying.

Mexico relaxing drug laws is going to get billed by the lefties as part of a Rove Conspiracy (TM) to allow the boarders to be locked down in a nastier way. Sadly, I'd suspect that there might be some truth to that.
