I do believe this is to help fight the drug cartels. I don't know what will happen in the high tourist traffic areas.

Nevertheless, I do feel ppl have to understand - the government of any and all countries will make their own decisions on what money the will take.

As I said, I don't get off the ship - have no personal use for Mexico since we were robbed by a couple of cops, however it floors me how Americans more so than Canadians feel that Mexico and other countries should bow to their demands and take their money or whatever else.

Each country has its own laws/rules. I defy anyone to take pesos, Euros rubles, or Canadian dollars to their grocery store and try to pay for their groceries with it. Not going to happen.

This decision by the Mexican government is exactly that, their decision. Either we all buy pesos and live with it or move on to someplace else. As I previously stated - we moved on a few years ago.
