Mexico Moves Toward Free Markets, Peace, Prosperity

By legalizing drugs...  which actually falls short.  There need be no rules to legalize anything, just get rid of the rules that criminalize anything.
MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - All drugs including cocaine, heroin and crystal meth will be legal in drug-scarred Mexico within 10 years, former Mexican President Vicente Fox believes, after a court ruling that he said makes the legalization of marijuana inevitable.
"I think marijuana (legalization) is a first step," Fox said in a telephone interview on Tuesday. "It's now irreversible."
Fox was president between 2000 and 2006 and became an advocate of legalizing drugs after leaving office.
Don't legalize, just decriminalize.

Then should we "decriminalize" murder? If drugs including cocaine, heroin and crystal meth are "legalized" then Mexico will suffer as violent crime increases and increased medical costs burden society. According to Forbes Mexico's upper class constitutes 1,340,000 people or 1.7% of the population so "decriminalizing" drugs would only benefit only those in power. I want to sell my products to a growing middle class that spends its' disposable income on my product or idea and not on a cocaine addiction that benefits only the ruling elite.

Legalize murder? Non sequitor... demonstrate that with legalization comes an increase in crime. I don't think it can be done. On the other hand, we have profound crime and costs with criminalization.

With legalization, your customers will naturally avail themselves of self-destruction? It is laws that protect us from ourselves?

Further, if any of your assertions were true, people should be constrained to act against their wills in order that you may prosper?
