Senators call for debate on the issue of drug legalization

The new president of Guatemala, Otto Perez, asked legalizing drugs as well as 19 states in the American union

MEXICO CITY, Feb. 23. – Senators from the PRI, PAN and PVEM demanded to initiate discussions on whether or not to decriminalize drug use involving parents, teachers, doctors and the general public, not just political parties.

In an interview, the senator of the Partido Revolucionario Institucional (PRI), Rosario Green, said the debate should be opened as the drug problem is very delicate, but probably will oppose this, “the rights and probably the churches,” he said.

However, the former chancellor said that Mexico has already decriminalized the carrying and use of marijuana “in small amounts for personal use, but many people do not know.”

Even the Foreign Secretary Patricia Espinosa, said on Wednesday that “she and President Felipe Calderon do not oppose to open a national debate on the issue,” Green said Macias.

Meanwhile, the president of the Public Safety Commission, Senator National Action Party (PAN), Felipe González, said that while the political institution has the position “that the solution is not to approve the use of drugs, this is the time to discuss the issue. “

“We are hearing what they say lawmakers and parties, but this must be open to society to view the topic, and parents are the most authoritative for us to listen and tell us what you think about this issue,” he added.

Gonzalez insisted that this is the time since in 19 states of the American Union already legalized the medicinal use of marijuana, and the new president of Guatemala, Otto Perez, asked to legalize drugs.

In turn, the legislature of the Green Party of Mexico (PVEM), Rene Arce, sued the Senate to approve his proposal to call ‘a great national debate’ to decriminalize certain drugs, like marijuana, and regulate the market of drugs.

“I insist on the issue because this is the time that in Mexico we must give way to reflection and debate on legalizing and regulating drugs,” the legislature by the Federal District.
