At the end of two days of meetings with Mexican officials, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. said that cooperation between the United States and Mexico was stronger and “fundamentally different than that which existed in the past.”
Sweet, what new methods are we going to try, AG Holder?
In their meetings with Mr. Calderón, Mr. Holder and the Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, discussed plans to provide training to Mexican canine teams, and to increase cooperation between the United States Coast Guard and the Mexican Navy to stop the increasing numbers of illegal immigrants and drug smugglers using the Pacific Ocean as a result of increased enforcement along the land border.
OK, I didn’t expect ‘legalize weed and burn one with my Mexican homies’. Go on …
And with marijuana sales central to the drug trade, Mr. Holder said he was exploring ways to lower the minimum amount required for the federal prosecution of possession cases.

Wait, what??? I thought you said ‘fundamentally different’? What is busting an end user of MexiBrickWeed with what amount now (a speck, weed breath, what) going to do to hurt the cartels? The only thing you’ll do is put more people that don’t deserve it into prison that we can’t afford to pay for.
