VIENNA---Uruguay s legalisation
of marijuana violates an interna-
tional drug control convention and
fails to consider a negative health
impact, a body set up to monitor
compliance with the five-decade-
old treaty said yesterday.
The president of the International
Narcotics Control Board (INCB),
Raymond Yans, said the change
would not protect young people but
would rather have the "perverse
effect of encouraging early exper-
imentation" and lowering the age
of first use.
Adding weight to the criticism of
Tuesday's move by Uruguay---the
first country to take such a step---
the UN anti-drugs office said it
agreed with the INCB and that
states should work closely together
to deal with the global drugs chal-
"It is unfortunate that, at a time
when the world is engaged in an
ongoing discussion on the world
drug problem, Uruguay has acted
ahead of the special session of the
UN General Assembly planned for
2016," David Dadge, spokesman for
the UN Office on Drugs and Crime
In an experiment that will be
closely watched by other nations
debating drug liberalisation,
Uruguay became the first country
to legalise the growing, sale and
smoking of marijuana. (Reuters)

MEXICO CITY---A shipment of highly radioactive
cobalt-60 was safely recovered Tuesday evening
after sitting in the cornfield where it was found
a week ago dumped by truck thieves in central
Mexico, the country s nuclear safety director said.
Cobalt-60 finally removed
from Mexican cornfield
MEXICO CITY---Mexican police
have arrested a man accused of
ordering and participating in the
murders of more than 200 peo-
ple, including kidnap victims,
rival gang members and drug
dealers, authorities said Tuesday.
Felipe Viveros Garcia, 30, was
detained in the western state of
Jalisco along with two other sus-
pects, Jose Bernabe Lopez Alcaraz,
43, and Froylan Barrera Morales,
40, the national security commis-
sion said in a statement.
The three men are accused of
taking part in organised crime,
murder, kidnapping, extortion and
gun smuggling. The statement did
not say when they were captured.
Viveros Garcia operated in sev-
eral towns in the states of Guerrero
and Jalisco, the commission said,
adding that as well as the more
than 200 murders he is "linked to
at least 10 documented kidnapping
cases" and accused of demanding
extortion payments from state
authorities in Jalisco.
His two accomplices allegedly
provided security for the gang and
gathered information on the activ-
ities of the authorities.
More than 77,000 people have
died in drug cartel-related violence
in Mexico over the past seven
President Enrique Pena Nieto,
who took office a year ago, has
pledged to reduce the murders and
kidnappings plaguing his country,
but while homicides are down,
abductions have soared.
This past month, authorities
unearthed 64 bodies in mass
graves in a region of Jalisco bor-
dering the state of Michoacan. The
two states are in the throes of a
turf war between the Jalisco New
Generation cartel and Michoacan's
Knights Templar gang.
The violence in the region has
prompted a growing number of
civilians to form vigilante units in
Michoacan and Guerrero. (AFP)
Mexico arrests suspect
linked to 200 murders
Juan Eibenschutz, director general of the National
Commission of Nuclear Safety and Safeguards, said
a robot was used to scoop up the dangerous material
and deposit it in a safe container for transporting
to a nuclear waste treatment facility.
"It's been recovered, and it's on its way to the
waste site," he said.
Earlier Tuesday, Eibenschutz had said the cobalt-
60 was still in the field because emergency workers
hadn't been able to get the robot close enough due
to bales of corn stalks in the field. He said workers
were clearing a path.
"Things turned out well," he said a few hours
later. "The operators of the robot prepared everything
and were able to secure the material."
Eibenschutz said a farmer was being checked at
a hospital after showing signs of radiation exposure.
The man, who lives in the nearby farming town of
Hueypoxtla, told authorities that he handled the
material after finding it in the field and started
feeling sick soon after.
The cobalt-60, which was from obsolete medical
equipment used in radiation therapy, was being
transported to a waste facility by a truck that was
stolen at gunpoint early December 2 when the driver
stopped to rest at a gas station in Hidalgo state.
