Mexico moves towards legalization

The other big news of the week is Mexico's move to legalize personal possession of all drugs. It's an enlightened piece of legislation coming from a country that the xenophobes in the US like to characterize as backwards.
Mexican officials hope the law will help police focus on large-scale trafficking operations, rather than minor drug busts.
The Mexicans are looking like visionary genuises with this approach, especially compared to the prohibitionists here who are still stuck on self-defeating punishment models out of the Dark Ages.
