Former Mexican President Vicente Fox Visiting Corpus Christi

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) - Former Mexican President Vicente Fox is in Corpus Christi to speak at Tuesday night's sold out Christus Spohn South Texas Lyceum.

Earlier in the day, Fox met with a small group of media to go over various topics, including his thoughts on the war on drugs. He said legalizing marijuana in the United States would go a long way toward ending the violence caused by the drug wars in Mexico.

"Back 100 years ago in Chicago, until the prohibition of alcohol was banned and crime ended, and the padranos disappeared. It's the same strategy that has to be followed now," Fox said.
