Mexico Passes Law Decriminalizing Marijuana And Cocaine (27)

"Under a bill passed by senators late on Thursday and earlier approved by the lower house, police will not penalize people for possessing up to 5 grams of marijuana, 5 grams of opium, 25 milligrams of heroin or 500 milligrams of cocaine.

However, under the new bill, people caught with larger quantities of drugs will be treated as narcotics dealers and face increased jail terms under the plan."

I think you mean "decriminalizing possession of ...". What point is there in allowing possession of trivial amounts if buying and selling are illegal? This ain't going to help with the drug crime problem at all, though it may well be more humane toward opiate addicts who'll be able to control their withdrawal symptoms with opium, given the amounts. The rest is just the rancid candy of zero tolerance in a new wrapper.

(How much is 25 mg of heroin anyway? And more importantly, are the fuzz going to do a highly involved chemical analysis to see how much actual heroin is present in your average mostly-filler street shit?)

That much is just enough to do a demonstration at the local elementary school, OR to get a local elementary school kid high.

President Fox Decides Not to Sign Drug Legalization Bill
"MEXICO CITY — President Vicente Fox reversed course Wednesday and decided not to sign a drug legalization bill"

Just before that, "U.S. officials began meeting privately with Mexican officials this week, trying to discourage what they described as a welcome mat for drug tourists and the expansion of the domestic market for Mexican drug cartels."

The so called "War on Drugs" is beyond laughable. Name a victory in that war?
Are we winning? <VBG> Did we win the War on Booze? How about prostitution?

Legislating morality only results in a profitable black market. If clinics were free legalizing drugs would end drug crime and Darwin would sort out the losers.

yeh let's legalize murder too. let darwin sort out the rest. shut up already.

13 Name: Unverified Source : 2006-07-04 09:21 ID:jA++8kNZ

that was a pretty stupid final amendment of >>11's. however, it's true that drug crime exists mostly as a result of how difficult we make it to obtain them.

We as humans will just get worse and worse and eventually end up with no censorship and no drug laws. Or maybe not. I could do with less censorship though. That is why the internet rocks.

16 Name: Unverified Source : 2006-08-28 12:53 ID:Heaven

Context matters.

1) Fix your shift key. All lowercase makes you look stupid. er.
2) Drug use doesn't infringe on others' rights. Murder does.

It messes with your senses which causes you to act irrationally thus making it a lot more likely that you will infringe on other peoples rights.

Also, druggies are fuckups, okay. If drugs were made legal, there would be a lot more people who take drugs, become addicted and lose touch with the real world thus screwing up society.

>It messes with your senses which causes you to act irrationally thus making it a lot more likely that you will infringe on other peoples rights.

Drugs are not nearly as great a cause of crime as other circumstances, especially poverty (race is more a coincidence). Even if you accept that drugs can lead to violent crime, you cannot successfully argue that legalized use in a controlled environment (i.e. bars, within the home) is worse than illegalization and the violence associated with resulting illegal trade.

>Also, druggies are fuckups, okay.

Refer to >>21. Most people in Amsterdam don't smoke pot, and Amsterdam has one of the most educated populaces in Europe.

I wouldn't let kids be raised by stupid druggie parents on a controlled environment (e.g. home), that's for sure.

24 Name: Unverified Source : 2006-09-20 16:45 ID:aTGlBjwf

Not your kids lol. God, I hate these fuckers who care so much about other people's kids and want to seperate them from their parents because they don't like the parents.

25 Name: 23 : 2006-09-20 17:09 ID:o19z58iY

Well, I care about my cousin when they got separate from their dad who abused them physically, mentally and financially because of his drug fix. :/

26 Name: Unverified Source : 2006-09-21 19:37 ID:Heaven


That is indeed unfortunate, but that kind of behaviour isn't exactly limited to illegal drugs. Plain old alcohol is likely a much bigger culprit in these cases.

27 Name: 23 : 2006-09-21 20:34 ID:o19z58iY

I don't like kids to be raised by parents who have an alchohol problem either. But I rest my case.

Everyone has the right to do what they want with their body (even kill themselves) as long as they don't harm others.
