Flag_of_Mexico.svgIn Mexico City, a discussion over the legalization of marijuana has required policymakers to consider allowing the cultivation of three marijuana plants per adult and the establishing of “nonprofit private club,” also identified as “smoking clubs.”

Representatives from the United Nations and the Organization of American States were in attendance for a three-day forum in which Mexico City council members discussed the possibility of making modifications to the current drug policy.

“We will be very responsible in this debate,” Manuel Granados declared, chair of the city council Governance Committee. “In Mexico City we agree on replacing criminal policies with health policies. We are ready to hold this debate and, at the right time, to legislate.”

Presently the cultivation and retailing of marijuana is illegal, but the country does allow adults to possess up to five grams of dried flowers. Hmm, you can’t grow it or sell it, but you can possess five grams. So I guess it falls from the sky, right on!

While the former president of Mexico, Vicente Fox, has taken a stand for the legalization of marijuana, Mexico’s current president, Pena Nieto, is hardheartedly opposing the legalization of the plant. President Nieto is actually hoping to apply stricter sentencing for drug traffickers and producers.

As an infant, Erik was accidently abandoned by his parents at Hempfest after they overindulged on the local offerings. Unfortunately for him, a band of stoner Gypsies informally adopted him and raised him as one of their own until he one day realized his clothes were abnormally different than everyone around him, which was weird considering he came to this conclusion while attending another Hempfest in hopes of finding his birth parents. After the shocking realization that he was indeed not a professional hobo with weird, gastly, outlandish clothing, he fled his Gypsy family and took refuge in the hills of the Emerald Triangle. It was in those very hills where Erik discovered his true purpose in life, cultivating marijuana! He spent years living in the hills of the Triangle mastering the craft of popping great crops of delicious sticky icky before deciding to come down from the mountain and rejoin civilization. Once Erik reacclimated himself to society, he acquired a laptop, setup his home garden, purchased a bong and began blogging marijuana-related news stories in hopes of spreading the truth about the plant and its medicinal properties. Erik is so pro-marijuana that if cut, he bleeds weed. Wanna hit? Then load up that bong and toke along!

    The “Private Pot Clubs” have been given permission to exist in Spain. Perhaps this is their inspiration to try it in Mexico.

    If that’s what Pres. Nieto really hopes, his drug policy remains hopeless and he is asking for a continuation of the violence.

      Agreed, you would think with the level of violence that his country endures that he would be more open to a solution rather than perpetuating the problem, but maybe he’s corrupt and stands to profit from its continuance. Thanks for commenting. We appreciate your readership!
