VICE: People talk about Cannabis Legalization in Mexico

"On November 19, the Senate of Mexico took a historic step by approving a ruling that would legalize the adult use of cannabis in the country. The bill includes not only the ability to legally buy and consume marijuana but also to grow it at home, obtain licenses to grow it in the field, sell plant-based products, and conduct research. Now all eyes are on the Chamber of Deputies, which will still have to debate the opinion and make a decision. If approved, it will come to the hands of the President, who will determine if it finally becomes a law." - Maya Averbuch.

In the last year, I´ve been working with writer Maya Averbuch on a series of stories about Marijuana in Mexico with the support of Fundación Gabo (COL) and Open Society Foundations (USA).
