Argentina’s High Court Rules In Favor of Drugs

Argentina, that sizzling South American paradise that provides fertile ground for steamy marital affairs is now drug friendly too. The country’s Supreme Court said they’re down with a limited amount of weed and other substances, ruling that adults have the “right of privacy to decide…whether they want to possess or consume drugs.” Although the case specifically concerned five men charged with possession of weed, it will apply to narcotics like cocaine and other drugs as well. That makes the nation with the world’s friendliest flag, almost on par with Mexico and light years ahead of the United States. |AP|
