There is no question Mexico is seriously considering legalizing marijuana. They have moved beyond outright denials to non denials coupled with comments about it being a "debate that needs to be taken seriously" Watch this interview with the Mexican Ambassador to the US. http://stopthedrugwar.org/chronicle_blog/2009/apr/14/
The US, of course, stands in the way.
But even in the US things are improving. California’s has by far the most liberal marijuana laws on the continent and with the feds all but out of the picture an industry is all but taken root there. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/04/11/AR2009041100767.html?hpid%3Dsec-health Only in Canada are things moving backwards and fast. The Conservatives are revamping the drug war and Canada’s so called Liberal party is going right along for the ride. Only Keith Martin rails against the tide and even he is afraid to say the L word.
