Mexico's Senate approves sweeping hashish legalization invoice
MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Mexico’s Senate accredited a sweeping hashish legalization invoice in a lopsided 82 to 18 vote on Thursday, paving the components for the introduction of the field’s greatest fair marijuana market if the initiative passes the next hurdle within the lower house of Congress.
Lawmakers are dashing to gain approval before the tip of the latest congressional session in mid-December. If given the inexperienced light, the law would allow the leisure, scientific, scientific and industrial uses of hashish, a predominant shift within the country where drug cartel violence in latest years has claimed over 100,000 lives.
