    Pot & Cocaine



    Mexico must have other plans for their jails than filling them with pot
    users.

    Owning marijuana, cocaine and even heroin will no longer be a crime in Mexico if the drugs are carried in small amounts for personal use, under legislation passed by the Congress.


    Police will not penalize people for possessing up to 5 grams of marijuana, 5 grams of opium, 25 milligrams of heroin or 500 milligrams of cocaine, under a bill passed by senators late on Thursday and earlier approved by the lower house.


    People caught with larger quantities of drugs will be treated as narcotics dealers and face increased jail terms under the plan.


    The government says the measure allows police to focus on major drug dealers, and President Fox is expected to sign it into law.


    "This law provides more judicial tools for authorities to fight crime,"

    Well, maybe heroin is a bit over the line.. but still, I never saw it as a
    jail offense.
