Left-wing Mexican senators on Tuesday presented an initiative to legalize
medical marijuana, saying a new approach was needed to speed up drug
liberalization and help end a cycle of cartel violence that has killed tens
of thousands.

Mexico <http://www.reuters.com/places/mexico?lc=int_mb_1001> has been
shaken by a wave of gang-related violence since former President Felipe
Calderon launched a military crackdown on drug cartels seven years ago, and
there is growing pressure both domestically and regionally to explore new
ways of tackling the problem.
