Recreational Cocaine Use Legally Permitted in Mexico !



" President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, a left-wing politician who took office in December, has proposed decriminalising illegal drugs. Drugs would not be illegal, but arrests would be replaced by enforcing treatment such as attending a detox programme.

In the first ruling of its kind, a mexican judge has granted two people the right to recreational cocaine use. The court said it would allow both claimants to "possess, transport and use cocaine" but not sell it, according to Mexico United Against Crime (MUCD).

MUCD, which seeks to end the country's "war on drugs", called the ruling a "historic step".

The decision must be reviewed by a higher court before it is enforced.

MUCD said the Mexico City court ordered the country's health authority, Cofepris, to authorise the two claimants' use of cocaine. A Cofepris official told the AFP news agency that it had taken steps to block the court order, which was handed down in May. If they do approve the ruling, it will only apply to the two people who brought the cases, whose identities were withheld. The ruling will only come into effect if a panel of judges side with the original decision. "

Many are curious to hear President Trumps reaction to this ruling.
