Mexico: US wavers in drug war with Calif. pot vote

TIJUANA, Mexico — Mexican President Felipe Calderon says a California ballot measure that would permit consumption of marijuana reflects "a terrible inconsistency" in US drug policies.




Calderon says that while the United States demands that Mexico and other countries combat drug trafficking, it makes no effort to reduce consumption.




The Mexican leader said in an interview with The Associated Press late Thursday that he doesn't know if recent security gains in Tijuana have affected the flow of drug across the border.




California voters will decide Nov. 2 on Proposition 19, which allows the possession of up to 1 ounce of marijuana and paves the way for local governments to allow retails sales of pot. 2.
