Mexico is set to legalize the possession of small amounts of controlled substances like marijuana, cocaine and heroine.
Mexico’s “gain” may be Daytona Beach’s loss. Who’s going to head to Florida for Spring Break now that 18-year-olds can have a full-on freakout legally down in Ole Mexico?
If you’re driving from, say, Illinois, it’s not much farther to go.
President Bush, of course, tried to talk his Mexican counterpart out of legalization, and it may have worked. I’m sure Gov Jeb made frantic calls to his bro in DC on behalf of our endangered tourism industry.
Though we officially disapprove of them, we love those drunken, projectile-vomiting, fornicating underage girls and guys gone wild. They’re a boon to the Florida economy, what with the revenue they bring to hotels, bars, restaurants, convenience stores and bail bondsmen.
But the competition may one day be just too stiff South of the Border, where apparently the real party is.
Tough tacos for us, I guess.
