Mexican Congress On Crack

By on 4.29.06 | 5:06PM

Just in time for the national walkout, back in the home country the Mexican Congress makes us all feel a whole lot better about our southerly neighbor's contribution to law and order by handing Vicente Fox a bill decriminalizing the possession of drugs. Which drugs? All drugs. In what amounts? "Small" amounts -- though the definition of smallness is as liberal as the rest of the bill.

Read it and weep:

"This law gives police and prosecutors better legal tools to combat drug crimes that do so much damage to our youth and children," said Fox's spokesman, Ruben Aguilar.

Better tools -- like bent spoons and broken light bulbs. Fox will sign. Junkies will multiply. Deaths will accumulate. Mexico will rot.
