The country of Mexico will no longer prosecute citizens who are apprehended with small amounts of marijuana, cocaine, and heroine in their possession.
A controversial new law says Mexicans can own drugs for personal use, including LSD, and methamphetamine.
Mexican authorities claim the law does not change anything, since their country rarely prosecutes people caught with small amounts of drugs.
The new law encourages users to seek help, and provides government-funded treatment options. But addicts are not required to take advantage of the free offer, until they have been caught with drugs three times. There are no penalties if they don't comply.
