Mexico Leads the Way on Civil Rights Issues

It appears that the Mexican government has decriminalized possession of small amounts of marijuana and other drugs such as LSD, heroin and amphetamine.

I have long believed that any laws which function to dictate what a person chooses to do with his or her own body are unconstitutional on their face and contrary to the principles of freedom and justice. I applaud Mexico for taking this brave stance on civil rights, against extreme pressure from the US government. It is high time we start treating drug addiction as a disease, not as a crime.
