A 'Blow' Against the War on Drugs

Via Reuters:

"President Vicente Fox within days will sign legislation that allows the personal use of cocaine, LSD, heroin and other drugs, his press secretary confirmed Tuesday, despite heavy criticism from the United States and within Mexico that the law will invite more problems than it intends to solve."

AND NOW, the money quote:

"In my judgment, this is a BLOW to the fight against the consumption of drugs in Mexico,'' said Jaime Olaiz, an international-law professor at Panamerican University in Mexico City. Olaiz, an expert on drug policy, speculated that the measure would increase business for dealers who sell small quantities of drugs.

0.5 grams is not that much of a blow.
