Mexico is the nation state immediately to the south of the US, or "Poor Mexico, so far from God and so close to the United States!" as president Porfirio Díaz once said.

Demography

One-fifth of Mexicans live in the metropolitan area of Mexico City and three-fifths live in other cities, leaving only 21 million who are rural.

Cannabis as a 'Human Right'

In November 2015 Mexico's supreme court ruled 4-1 that smoking cannabis was a basic human right. This ruling concerned a nonprofit marijuana club — the Mexican Society for Responsible and Tolerant Autoconsumption, (SMART) and so did not immediately affect marijuana prohibition laws.[1]

Illegal Drug Trade

Mexico's geographical position makes it an import nation as far as the importation of illegal drugs into the USA - especially cocaine from South America. Joël van der Reijden writes that "Information that came out in the wake of the Kiki Camarena death clearly demonstrates that the CIA and Mexican government have been working hand in hand with the drug cartels, with the CIA apparently controlling and employing them as right wing death squads", also noting that "hundreds of journalists have been murdered or disappeared in Mexico in the past decades."[2]

Presidents were CIA agents

In 2017, as thousands of declassified files on John F. Kennedy were made public, journalist Raymundo Riva Palacio discovered that three former Mexican presidents - Adolfo Lopez Mateos (1958-1964), Gustavo Díaz Ordaz (1964-1970) and Luis Echeverria (1970-1976) - were unpaid agents for the U.S. government,[3] leading to the assumptions that these three might not be the only ones. The declassification is less dramatic than it sounds, as CIA whistleblower Philip Agee had exposed them as far back as 1975.[4]

George Carlin“It's the old American Double Standard, ya know: Say one thing, do something' different. And of course, this country is founded on the double standard, that's our history! We were founded on a very basic double standard: This country was founded by slave owners who wanted to be free. Am I right? A group of slave owners who wanted to be free! So they killed a lot of white English people, in order to continue owning their black African people, so they could wipe out of the rest of the red Indian people, so they move west and steal the rest of the land from the brown Mexican people, giving them a place to take off and drop their nuclear weapons on the yellow Japanese people. You know what the motto of this country ought to be? "You give us a color, we'll wipe it out!"”George Carlin
Donald Trump“When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're not sending you. They're not sending you. They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people. But I speak to border guards and they tell us what we're getting. And it only makes common sense. It only makes common sense. They're sending us not the right people. It's coming from more than Mexico. It's coming from all over South and Latin America, and it's coming probably – probably – from the Middle East. But we don't know. Because we have no protection and we have no competence, we don't know what's happening. And it's got to stop and it's got to stop fast.”Donald TrumpJune 2015
