WE BELIEVE THAT IT MATTERS …
Because this change could be historical
The government of Andrés Manuel López Obrador is asking citizens if the use of marijuana for recreational purposes should be legal or illegal.
This Monday, the official Twitter account of the Secretariat of Security and Citizen Protection, whose holder is Alfonso Durazo, launched a survey in that social network about a modality of cannabis use that is penalized by the laws in force.
“Should the use of marijuana for recreational purposes be?” Says the question, and the options to respond are “Legal” or “Illegal.”
The survey was launched on Monday at 10:50. This type of exercise on Twitter has a period of 24 hours to participate and until 15:00 hours had more than 17 thousand votes, of which 85% has expressed in favor of the legalization of cannabis for recreational purposes.
The use of marijuana for medical purposes is legal in Mexico since 2017. However, the use of the plant for recreational purposes continues to be penalized, although individuals may seek protection to do so legally, due to the jurisdiction created by the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (SCJN) in November 2018 .
From the period of transition and during her passage as senator, the current secretary of the Interior, Olga Sanchez Cordero, has manifested herself in favor of the legalization of marijuana for recreational purposes.
