Mexico's New Drug Law

As most of you know, MexPrez Vincente Fox is expected to sign into law a new bill that decriminalizes, as the NYT reports, possession of up to "5 grams of marijuana, 5 grams of opium, 25 milligrams of heroin or 500 milligrams of cocaine."

That's not accurate. Other drugs, including Ecstasy, are also included in the decriminalization.

Scanning the blogosphere, it's no surprise most blogs -- liberal or dopehead in nature -- think it's a great idea. Well, most blogs are written by idiots.

My wife has made a film that chronicles what happened to four families because of the casual -- not big time addictive, but "safe casual" -- use of the drugs Ecstasy and Ketamine. In it, she tells the story of Erin, who now struggles painfully to get through life because of a severe brain injury caused by "safe casual" use of Ketamine, an anaesthetic used primarily by vets. (You can meet Erin at the link above; there's a preview.)

The Ketamine Erin took was purchased in Mexico and brought back to California. It was easy for the boy who bought it to accomplish the trick, as you can see from this photo of a Mexican pharmacy. Now the trick will be done with heroin, opium, coke, various methamphetimine drugs and pot.

That's very bad news for our kids.

And it's bad news for our border police, who are already overwhelmed with the human illegals, and now will have to deal with the drug illegals, too.

More and more, Mexico is our neighbor, but not our friend. And you know what they say to do when you've got a bad neighbor: Put up a good fence.
