Will Mexico Say NO...

To the United States, that is?

CNN ran a story a couple days ago about Mexico's Congress passing a bill decriminalizing small amounts of illegal drugs. El President Fox is expected to sign the bill. I was reminded of it this morning when I saw the story featured on the Sierra Times web site.

I'm wondering if Fox will cave to U.S. interests over this? Our government repeatedly tries to strongarm other countries, most notably Canada, into following the U.S. line on drug law enforcement. I suspect the pressure on Fox to veto the bill will be enormous.

I think Fox will sign the bill.
