The Archdiocese of Mexico’s weekly publication, “From the Faith,” published a strong editorial this week rejecting a proposal by the Legislative Assembly of Mexico City that would legalize the use of marijuana.
“Drug trafficking and corruption in Mexico are an embarrassment,” and therefore the idea of legalizing marijuana in Mexico City is an “inappropriate and insensitive” action, the editorial stated.
“How 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?” the editors asked.
They warned that the legalization of “light drugs” would only open the door to the approval of harder drugs.
