Vicente Fox Backs Mexico Drugs Legalization

BBC News - Vicente Fox backs Mexico drugs legalisation
Former Mexican president Vicente Fox has called for the legalisation of drugs, arguing that prohibition has failed to curb rising drug-related violence and corruption.

Mr Fox said legalisation did not mean that drugs were good.

But he said it was a strategy that could reduce the power of the cartels.

Prohibition creates black markets. Black markets benefit and create thugs and gangs and violence. If you didn't learn that from alcohol prohibition in the U.S., maybe you'll listen to the former President of Mexico.
