President Peña Nieto Delivers Good News For Mexico… For Once

weed

Funny enough, on the eve of April 20th (you know, 4/20), Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto delivered good news: He’s considering legalizing medical marijuana in Mexico.

“I am giving voice to those who have (in public forums) expressed the necessity of changing the regulatory framework to authorize the use of marijuana for medical and scientific purposes,” he said at a United Nations General Assembly in New York.

At this assembly, world leaders gathered to talk about global strategy on the war against drugs. Basically they’ve come to agreement that the war on drugs and the criminalization of users has not been working for any country… DUH.

Osea, obvio.

This is the first time in the last 20 years these leaders have gathered to rethink how they address the production and the consumption of drugs.

As for Peña Nieto, he thinks drugs should be addressed as a “public health problem,” but users shouldn’t be punished. “We should be flexible to change that which has not yielded results, the paradigm based essentially in prohibitionism, the so-called ‘War on Drugs’ … (which) has not been able to limit production, trafficking nor the global consumption of drugs,” he said.

He speaks along the same lines as the Supreme Court’s landmark decision that made way for the liberalization of Mexico’s marijuana laws, which Mexicans have been supporting.

But hold up ✋,? this is where it gets good. A senator from Peña Nieto’s Institutional Revolutionary Party said that a medical marijuana bill should pass this May and the legal limit for personal use would also be increased.

Smokers, rejoice.
