El Paso City Council to Vote Again on Resolution Calling for National Debate on Legalizing Narcotics
By Evan Woodward
Las Cruces, NM – Tomorrow the El Paso City Council will vote for the second time on a resolution which calls for an "open national debate on ending the prohibition of narcotics"--after the first attempt was vetoed by Mayor John Cook. As KRWG's Evan Woodward reports, the resolution was authored to show the city's solidarity with Ciudad Juarez, where more than 1600 murders occurred last year.
