  1. “Mexico’s Senate will vote for a bill to fully legalize marijuana in the next few days, a key lawmaker told Reuters, marking a major step toward changing the country’s approach to the drug by removing it as a source of income for violent drug gangs.”

    “If approved by the Senate, the proposal would then proceed to the lower house for a vote.”

  2. It says legalize and not decriminalize so I guess they’re going to formalize the industry. Could be big tourist money

  3. I think they are finally tired of high quality American marijuana being smuggled into Mexico.

  4. Mexico.. more progressive than the land of the free.

    Why states are turning down recreational weed is so fucking stupid. The taxes Alone would pump millions into the economy

  5. What does this do to cartels?

  6. Now they will become one of the biggest world superpowers

  7. People are going to take their social security and medicare to Mexico when they retire.

  8. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.reuters.com/article/us-mexico-drugs/mexican-senate-set-to-pass-bill-to-legalize-marijuana-in-next-few-days-idUSKBN1WU2Q9) reduced by 73%. (I’m a bot)

    > MEXICO CITY – Mexico's Senate will vote for a bill to fully legalize marijuana in the next few days, a key lawmaker told Reuters, marking a major step toward changing the country's approach to the drug by removing it as a source of income for violent drug gangs.

    > "The end of the prohibitionist policy is good for the country," he said, adding that the bill would regulate personal use and sale of marijuana as well as research into the plant.

    > Late last year, the Supreme Court said lawmakers have until Oct. 24 to legalize marijuana, after the high court ruled in several cases that the prohibition of the recreational use of the drug violates the constitution.
