Hummmm...I think that story does not ring true. I could make a really bad joke...but I will refrain. Think about it...it just cant be true. Really...all drugs. '___' and Heroin too? Nah....Urban Legend, Rumor, but not true!
It is true, someone on the other thread posted a link to a news story.
Mexico's Congress has just passed legislation that would decriminalize the possession of small quantities of illegal drugs. If President Vicente Fox signs the legislation (and despite some pressure from the U.S. government, it appears that he will), Mexico will join the ranks of the Netherlands and several other countries that have abandoned the "zero tolerance" model embraced by the United States.
Under the new law, possession of up to 25 milligrams of heroin, 5 grams of marijuana (about four joints), or 0.5 grams of coc aine (about 4 "lines") for personal use would no longer be a criminal offense. Small quantities of other drugs, such as peyote or amphetamines, would be treated in the same fashion.
