Latin America: Mexican Decriminalization Bill Now Law of the Land

No one here has mentioned the topic of Mexico's bill to decriminalize the personal use of drugs so I thought I would post one of the first and very best articles about it that basically gets straight to the point. Although news of the bill is not directly related to 9/11 truth, I think it's important that people know about it as the drug wars and 9/11 wars are inextricably tied.

Latin America: Mexican Decriminalization Bill Now Law of the Land

from Drug War Chronicle, Issue #598, 8/21/09

A bill that decriminalizes the possession of small amounts of drugs for personal use in Mexico is now the law of the land, although it will not go into effect for one year to give states time to adjust their laws. It was published Thursday in the Official Daily of the Federation, the Mexican equivalent of the Federal Register. (To read the complete text of the bill in Spanish, go to page 83 of the Official Daily.)

A very well built documentary about cannabis and drug prohibition. Does the drug prohibition work? Have a look and think for yourself.

British Columbia's illegal marijuana trade industry has evolved into a business giant, dubbed by some involved as 'The Union', Commanding upwards of $7 billion Canadian annually. With up to 85% of 'BC Bud' being exported to the United States, the trade has become an international issue. Follow filmmaker Adam Scorgie as he demystifies the underground market and brings to light how an industry can function while remaining illegal. Through growers, police officers, criminologists, economists, doctors, politicians and pop culture icons, Scorgie examines the cause and effect nature of the business - an industry that may be profiting more by being illegal.
