Huichol ‘cosmic portal’ peyote cermonies threatened by silver mine
What seems to be a mostly balanced article. In other words it’s not stilted by saying a bunch of destitute-neanderthal-addicted-druggie-hippy-types who live off the land are holding up humanity’s progress and costing society billions.
Coming from a news source in Washington that is amazing.
Well it was good someone finally turned up some evidence.
Although they still seem to be prohibited from using the word "prohibition." And they STILL are not inviting Walter McKay on the show! A subject-matter expert from the trenches, not just a journalist (sorry, no offense intended journalists). At least they seem to be making some progress against whoever is trying to control them. The cartels? People being paid off by the cartels?
There are two videos to watch.
A bullet-proof-vest-wearing reporter has to duck for cover while standing on a bridge and reporting on Mexico's Drug War.
Finally, the word "legalization" is mentioned! However, the word "prohibition" is not. :-( Boo.

I am still amazed you all continue to ignore Walter McKay, Mexico City, DF, Mexico, International Police Specialist! http://wmckay.blogspot.com/

U.N. Says War Between Mexican Drug Cartels Benefits U.S.
Dear Cauldron-of-Confusion Calderon, and Obstinate Obama,
In this PBS NewsHour segment they report on a few news items, mostly inspired by the recent killing of a "drug lord," a "drug kingpin," Arturo Beltran Leyva.
Hm… Let's see what we can learn…
This great news just in…
CNN has an article about gang warfare over both turf and money. However, the headline is misleading.
