I think Mexico should just understand the drug cartel is here to stay and people will keep coming to the USA as long as they condone slave labor.
Seems like Mexico wants the same for the USA-rich and poor and no middle class.

The "war on drugs" in Mexico is nothing more than an attempt

by the current Mexican govt. to take business from one cartel

and hand it over to another.

Californians must be getting very weary of outside agencies influencing their political process. From outside religious organizations on prop 8, to out of state Big Oil trying to kill prop 28, to Mexican officials attempting to sway the government on marijuana legalization. If I were them I'd be getting a miffed by now.

The Mexican gov. is afraid of the competition. This is corruption on display by politicians at the highest levels (no pun intended) in Mexico city. Drug cartels and corrupt government officials fear losing market share especially when you're talking about the largest state in America. If prop 19 passes it will unequivocally have the reverse effect and the gov in Mexico knows it

If you have any "keen sense of the obvious"..you will know that if we legalize it.it will eliminate the criminal factor...FACTS ARE FACTS!...Of course they are fighting it..means drug cartels cant use it for blood money anymore!!...And cant use federal land ( like they do now !) to grow it anymore if it becomes legal in California.Mexican cartels use our federal land here in California to do secret illegal grows!..Wake up people!

The legalization of marijuana in California would be only the second indication in my lifetime that human beings possess an ability to eventually learn from their societal mistakes . It would be a shock to me , and a pleasant surprise . And it would be the best news of the year of 2010 .

Of course legalizing marijuana will increase the demand. I personally feel whether it is legalized or not if they want it they will possess it somehow. However, I do feel that this drug causes short-term memory loss among other issues and should be used with extreme caution. Although, I truly feel it shouldn't be used in any form. Legalization will cause more issues and the repercussions will and can be damaging in the long run, more so than now.

We should criminalize alcohol and tobacco while we're at it.

Legalize cannabis and restructure the war on drugs to impact herion, opium, cocain and excasty.
Problem solved.

Why would officials from Mexico have any say whatsoever on American law regarding the legalization of marijuana? They aren't American citizens, so what they think about it is completely irrelevant.

Corporations aren't citizens either. They give $$$. As do criminal cartels.

If this isnt a sign that the Mexican goverment depends on our pot heads....Look make the stuff legal,sell it like you do booze allow people to grow their own set limits on how much you can grow if possible.The black market south of the boarder would be damn near crippled.Even our own "homegrown" dealers would be thrown in disarray and the prices will drop then they will fade out all together.Now cops are free to chase real crooks weed is cheap,the national debt is wiped out in about 2 years or so and everyone is happy....Just sayin.

belied the contents of the actual study.

"We believe that legalizing marijuana in California would effectively eliminate Mexican
DTOs'" -- drug-trafficking organizations' -- "revenues from supplying Mexican-grown marijuana to the California market. As we elaborate in this chapter, even with taxes, legally produced marijuana would likely cost no more than would illegal marijuana from Mexico and would cost less than half as much per unit of THC (Kilmer, Caulkins, Pacula, et al., 2010). Thus, the needs of the California market would be supplied by the new legal industry. While, in theory, some DTO employees might choose to work in the legal marijuana industry, they would not be able to generate unusual profits, nor be able to draw on talents that are particular to a criminal organization," concludes the report. It adds that if California goes on to export its pot crop to the rest of the country -- a likely scenario -- cartels could lose a fifth of their revenue."

Based upon this excerpt, shouldn't Pelosi be embracing legalization?

She would be opposing both Democrat Senators from California plus the Dem candidate for governor if she did.

The officials are lobbying against it because they are ALL CORRUPT and their cartel kick backs will dry up.

This is Mexico we are talking about here. Every single official is complacent, corrupt and looking out for number 1.

F' Mexico

What a pile of BS! What they should say is that corrupt government officials will lose their sources of revenue if the US legalizes pot. So please! Just continue to imprison Americans and destroy kids and families for corrupt government officials can stay rich.
