Legal Marijuana Use in Mexico Might Become a Real Thing

Video translation is as follows:
Ciro Gómez Leyva: In other news, a law decree drafted surfaced today of the regulation from the planting to the commercialization of marijuana in Mexico. Both for personal use, as it’s known, and just as well for medicinal use. The opinion was created with more than just initiatives that were presented by the senators of all political parties.

What are the points in common? An individual can legally grow between 6 and 20 plants of marijuana for personal use. The final number is yet to be discussed. In addition, the allowed percentage of possession surpasses what’s legally allowed. Which is currently 5 grams to 28. What else does this project prepose? That users could smoke in public spaces except those areas that are smoke free.

And that it would be forbidden to sell marijuana derivatives mixed with other substances. Like alcohol, nicotine, or caffeine. And that in matters of cigarettes they cannot be sold per unit. Advertising, promotion, or sponsorship related to cannabis products will also be prohibited. As well as the consumption from minors. Well, it seems though that President López Obrador doesn't like that this initiative moves forward. The initiative to open marijuana for personal consumption in Mexico.
