Two weeks ago, DRCNet reported that discussion of legalization seemed to be making the United States' Mexican embassy nervous as border governors of the two countries gathered for their annual conference (http://www.drcnet.org/wol/190.html#bordergovernors).

NarcoNews.com has provided a full English translation of US Ambassador to Mexico Jeffrey Davidow's anti-legalization speech, with a host of responses submitted by reformers and a short response from the embassy itself. Visit http://www.narconews.com/readerstodavidow.html to check it out.

Drug War on Trial: Narco News is currently preparing for the big day in court -- July 20th -- in a case that has important implications for free speech in the age of the Internet. Visit http://www.narconews.com for the latest update and information on how to donate to the legal defense.
