Mexico proposes legal medical marijuana in major shift

0

MEXICO CITY: Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto proposed Thursday legalizing medical marijuana and easing restrictions on recreational use, a major policy shift for a government embroiled in an ultra-violent drug war. Peña Nieto’s decision to send landmark legislation to Congress was the result of a national debate on cannabis laws and comes amid a growing debate about drug policy across the Americas. “Society and the scientific community have spoken. There was a clear consensus that there are limits to the current focus in which Mexico has dealt with the marijuana issue,” Peña Nieto said.
