Major Mexican reform

They’ve decriminalized possession of small amounts.

Mexico has enacted a controversial law that decriminalizes possession of small amounts of marijuana, cocaine and heroin.

The law defines “personal use” amounts for those drugs, as well as LSD and methamphetamines.

It says people found with those amounts will not face criminal prosecution, but that if caught a third time they will be required to complete treatment programs, though no punishment is specified to enforce that.
