Libertarian Argentina?

Heard this on National Public Radio yesterday and this AP article confirms it: Argentina's Supreme Court just ruled that sending people to prison for personal possession of marijuana is unconstitutional.

"Each individual adult is responsible for making decisions freely about their desired lifestyle without state interference," their ruling said. "Private conduct is allowed unless it constitutes a real danger or causes damage to property or the rights of others."

Wow! Words like that aren't heard very often in this country anymore, except by the relative handful of libertarians. Almost brings tears to my eyes when you see other countries creeping towards freer societies while this country moves faster and faster into a totalitarian one.

yeah too bad Argentina doesn´t have class action, so it´s kind of on case by case basis...
