Mexico's President says it's time to debate legalizing drugs.

President Felipe Calderon talked about the pros and cons at a security council meeting.

Drug violence in Mexico has grown so much, some fear it could affect Mexico's tourism and deter investment.

More than 28,000 people have been killed in drug-related violence since President Calderon took office.

Someone should relay to Presidente Calderon to realize that Mexico is fast becoming a failed state and will eventually need U.N. help to free it of the cartels. But then, what will the corrupt politicans from top to bottom do for a living?

Ha ha ha so thats your answer mexico? So now all this "legal taxable" item will go straight to your corrupt politicians pockets. Which will turn Criminal cartels to legitamite business owners and operators.

The president will have the jurisdiction to a-point which cartel will have goverment backing to be the sole provider of such a substance.

Who stands to make money other then the people in office now. This is amazing.

So this means each cartel just has to apply for a business license and then the head of that cartel becomes a CEO and then hires a lobbyist to send now legal bribes to the president to have him vote his cartel the contracts to produce the legal drugs.

So now caldron can accept money from a new million dollar legal business legally and line his own pockets.

What the hell are the people of mexico thinking in allowing this to go threw.

So in one fell swoop your president will wash away all the blood that these Cartels have done to your fellow mexican brothers and sisters. There is no way if this goes threw mexico's goverment can prosicute these people because they would have to have evidence prior to the passing of this law which will be hard to come by.

Cartels are the only ones with the finance to fill the qouta that will explode in supply and demand of these new legal substances to this country.
