.- The Archdiocese of Mexicoâs weekly publication, âFrom the Faith,â published a strong editorial this week rejecting a proposal by the Legislative Assembly of Mexico City that would legalize the use of marijuana.
âDrug trafficking and corruption in Mexico are an embarrassment,â and therefore the idea of legalizing marijuana in Mexico City is an âinappropriate and insensitiveâ action, the editorial stated.
âHow is it possible we can find lawmakers who dare to propose the legalization of drugs? How is it possible there can be such a lack of reflection and depth regarding such a serious human problem?â the editors asked.
They warned that the legalization of âlight drugsâ would only open the door to the approval of harder drugs.
