Mexico set to legalize

MEXICO CITY, Mexico (AP) -- Mexico's Congress on Friday approved a bill decriminalizing possession of small quantities of marijuana, ecstasy, cocaine and even heroin for personal use, prompting U.S. criticism that the measure could harm anti-drug efforts.

The only step remaining was the signature of President Vicente Fox, whose office indicated he would sign the bill, which Mexican officials hope will allow police to focus on large-scale trafficking operations rather than minor drug busts.

"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.

If Fox signs the measure and it becomes law, it could strain the two countries' cooperation in anti-drug efforts -- and increase the vast numbers of vacationing students who visit Mexico.

Well, the subject is not really political per se and the thread is progressing fine so far.

BTW, I'm a staff member but not an admin. Just a simple editor/reporter. :AH-HA_wink:

oh sure, let's promote people using addictive drugs.

my take: get all the immigrants out of the US.

You know, I heard ona talk show once, that the government should set aside a day that all illegal immigrants should have a bounty on them. That'll clear `em real fast =D

No ...Just those who enter without any legal documents, then start demanding

rights that are due to Americans who work hard and pay taxes.

Total bull$h!.

If you don't like being an illegal in America, get the F*CK out....

Don't take they day off and have a demonstration....

Clog our streets with stupid banners.

Speak English, follow the laws, pay the taxes, or git.

The rhetoric in this thread is bordering on flat-out racism. Anyone with Chinese, Eastern and Southern European, and Irish ancestry (along with others) should ask their great-grandparents how legal their immigration was. My great-great-grandfather, for example, had his boat from Russia turned around before docking in NY, so he jumped out and swam for land.

C-Spec times have changed since the past. China is going to be better than a America shortly.

For exapmle we have child labor laws now not back then. My ancestors left here from Ireland back in the day for here and made it and he worked for ford. my other half is almost unkown but traces can be linked back to the Slave trading days. as a trader and one day lost his son in a auction.

plus like now we have emmisons not back then. (had to make a car topic in here)

they can be here to survie ok but when they dont pay back to us and send all there money back to different countrys like pakistan, mexico, and spain. IT REALLY PISSES ME OFF!

Also Cocaine is a hell of a drug!

(as i quitely get banned from C-Spec today)

As Nancy would have said, "Say no to drugs." I'm proud to be an uncool geek in this manner.

I also say no to alcohol. Two big wastes of money and time.

What do you mean "better"? Richer? China is certainly not going to be better in terms of human rights and happiness of its citizens.

Child labor laws were made in the early 1900s, much before the second wave of immigration in the 1920s. Most immigrants from back then came specifically to send money back to their families, and had little allegiance to this country. German-Americans supported the Kaiser in WW1, along with the Irish because they despised the British. Immigrants from Europe were also bitterly racist against African Americans, because the Great Migration to the North threatened the low-paying factory jobs of immigrants.

And back to the subject of the usefulness of illegal immigrants, the Transcontinental Railroad was made by Chinese workers working in unbelievably dangers conditions because they had to blast through the Sierra Nevada. The railroad going the other way to meet with them at Promontory Point was mostly Irish immigrants.

On the subject of emissions, what are you referring to? (If it's cars, factories like Carnegie's steel mills polluted a hell of a lot more. You should look at photos of Pittsburgh from around 1910.)

I think he means emissions standards and he's trying to exemplify how times have changed since those days.

There are two sides to every issue, just like there are to the current immigration problem. The fact is we cannot simply deport tens of millions of illegals (not just Mexicans) nor can we allow everyone who wants to emigrate here to do so without some sort of process. The answer lies in immigration reform and all these silly Spanish-language anthems are just a veil over the real issue.
