The Mexican government just voted to decriminalize the possession of heroin, cocaine, and marijuana in small amounts for personal use. The reaction from the jack boots in Washington – including Bush – will be most interesting.

The legislation came as a shock to Washington, which counts on Mexico’s support in its war against drug smuggling gangs who move massive quantities of cocaine, heroin, marijuana and methamphetamines through Mexico to U.S. consumers.

“I would say any law that decriminalizes dangerous drugs is not very helpful,” said Judith Bryan, spokeswoman for the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City. “Drugs are dangerous. We don’t think it is the appropriate way to go.”

A small but important win for freedom.
