Fox Hounded into Reversal
In an about face, Fox decided not to sign the drug decriminalization (possession of small amounts of cocaine, heroin, etc.) legislation and sent it back to the Mexican congress. Apparently, he reconsidered after U.S. outcries pertaining to the consequent creation of potential drug destinations for tourists and Mexican lawmakers' claims not to be fully aware of the extent of the decriminalization of drugs. How willl the Mexican legislature revise this bill? Amsterdam tourist officials are staying tuned.
