Ex-Mexico president calls for legalizing drugs

MEXICO CITY – Former President Vicente Fox is joining with those urging his successor to legalize drugs in Mexico, saying that could break the economic power of the country's brutal drug cartels.
Fox's comments, posted Sunday on his blog, came less than a week after President Felipe Calderon agreed to open the door to discussions about the legalization of drugs, even though he stressed that he remained opposed to the idea.
Fox said places that have implemented the legalization strategy have not seen significant increases in drug use.
