It's official: Amsterdam ain't got nothing on Mexico. Presidente Fox is about to sign a bill that legalizes a host of drugs for personal use. Which drugs, you wonder (unless you've read this in every other news outlet that's written on this)? Well, these ones: Cocaine. Heroin. LSD. Marijuana. PCP. Opium. Synthetic opiates. Mescaline. Peyote. Psilocybin mushrooms. Amphetamines. Methamphetamines.
I checked out a few of the articles on this and I'm liking the one that ran in the LA Times. Many of the articles only mentioned that drugs would be permissible for personal use, but they didn't break it down. The LA Times gives potential Spring Breakers much-needed specifics.
And the per-person amounts approved for possession by anyone 18 or older could easily turn any college party into an all-nighter: half a gram of coke, a couple of Ecstasy pills, several doses of LSD, a few marijuana joints, a spoonful of heroin, 5 grams of opium and more than 2 pounds of peyote, the hallucinogenic cactus.
Got that, students? Don't go to Senor Frogs with a dozen joints in your pocket. Take one or two. Ditto ecstasy pills.
The main problem I have with the article is it doesn't tell you where you can go to procure a personal amount. But maybe this is information you can get from your travel agent.
Am I going to run to Mexico once this bill becomes law? No. I'm going to walk. Because I don't have a drug problem. When I take PCP, I take it in a recreational manner. I'll do a line of PCP with dinner. Unless I'm having steak. If I'm eating steak, I'll do a line of heroin to really bring out the flavor. Obviously, if I'm having fish, coke's the way to go. The point is is that I'm a recreational user. It's great that Mexico is finally recognizing users like me.
