The Economist: El Paso’s small step

Last week’s edition of the Economist magazine featured an article about the legalization debate, giving a nod to our City Council Rep. Beto O’Rourke. From the article: In recent years Ciudad Juárez has become one of the bloodiest cities in the world, wracked by turf wars between Mexico’s vicious drug cartels. Beto O’Rourke, a young city representative, thought the resolution could say a bit more about America’s role in the violence. He added an amendment: the city of El Paso was calling for an “honest, open national debate on ending the prohibition of narcotics.” Looks like El Paso is making the news yet again.
