Mexican President Considers Debate on Legalizing Drugs


Since about 28,000 people were killed in drug violence since 2006, Mexico’s president Felipe Calderon thinks about legalizing drugs.  In 2006 he introduced legislation to crackdown cartels.


According to agency director Guillermo Valdes approximately 84,000 weapons had been confiscated.  Valdes presented the statistics during a meeting with the president and representatives of business and civic groups.


The latter, however, suggested a different strategy.  They called on the Mexican government to consider a debate on legalizing drugs.  Moreover they want the government to cut off funding of organized crimes.



"I'm not talking just about marijuana," analyst and writer Hector Aguilar Camin said in proposing the debate Tuesday, "rather all drugs in general."





Legalizing Drugs Has Presidential Support


Former President Vicente Fox has made it clear that he supports the legalization of drugs.  Fox stated education and public awareness ultimately affect an individual’s decision to consume drugs.


Fox’s statement was made from his web-site.  A point about Mexico’s military, in that it was not designed to take on organized crime.
