MEXICO : Prez. Front Runner Pena Nieto Opposes Drug Legalization.


      The PRI party's presidential candidate...Enrique Pena Nieto...with a comfortable lead in recent polls...says legalizing drugs...is too 'simplistic.'
      He believes it only leads to use of harder drugs.
      Pena Nieto, 45...told AP that he proposes using the same tactics as current President Calderon...creating a single state police force and cracking down on money laundering.
     He claims his obsession 'is to boost the economy, to create jobs.'
     Latest polls give Pena Nieto 41.6% of the vote...with the ruling PAN's candidate...Josefina Vasquez Mota receiving only 17.5%.
