I was happy to read this news report - Pacific Coast Business Times - Mexican ex-president calls for free trade, legal drugs which quoted former Mexican president Vicente Fox saying:
"If it wants to end drug-related violence in Mexico, the United States should consider legalizing drugs"
"We need to end the war . . . It's time to debate legalizing drugs. Then maybe we can separate violence from what is a health problem."
Of course, it would be nice to find more politicians speaking out against the drug war while they are still in office!
