Former Mexican President Launches Global Partnership with Pot Advocates

More than 70,000 peope have been killed since Fox's successor, Felipe Calderon, launched a large-scale offensive against the Mexican drug organizations.

"We cannot afford more blood and the loss of more young people," Fox said Monday. "We must get out of the trap we are in."

Fox's discussion will continue during a three-day summit in Mexico later this month, where he will be joined by global leaders including the dean of Harvard's School of Public Health and a Mexican congressman.
