Mexico Decriminalizes Possesion of Drugs.
Mexico’s decriminalization of simple possession of marijuana, heroine, LSD, and cocaine.
Mexico’s Congress decriminalized the possession of very small quantities of those drugs and now treats simple possession as a public health issue rather than a criminal one. However, sharing, selling, buying, giving away, or in any way exchanging those drugs is still illegal, meaning that there is still no legal way for users to obtain the legally allowable amounts of their drug of choice.
Mexico’s new 5-gram limit on legal marijuana possession is far too small to allow Mexicans to grow marijuana for personal consumption. Mexico’s new drug policy might alleviate some pressure on Mexico’s judicial and prison systems by keeping minor offenders out of them, but it’s far from a radically new or innovative drug policy.
